There's a surprisingly simple explanation for why iPhone owners can accept calls two different ways
iPhone owners: Have you ever noticed sometimes when you receive a call you have an option to swipe to answer, while other times you're given "accept" and "decline" buttons?
We saw this tweet on Friday and it got us thinking.
First, I had my colleague Jillian, who is has an iPhone, call me.
We wanted to see if it would make a difference if the person calling you was in your contacts, so I had another colleague, Steven, who also has an iPhone but isn't in my contacts, give me a ring.
Nope! We got the slider again.
Turns out this is a pretty common question and the answer is pretty simple: If your iPhone is locked when you receive a call, as mine was, you'll be shown a slider to answer the call, with no option to ignore it. If your phone's unlocked, you'll get the option to either dismiss or accept the call.
