The version Release Candidate iOS 16.4 continues to give us the odd news that we will appreciate in our day to day. After finding traces of new AirPods, developers have discovered that the voice isolation feature will become available for phone calls.
This function was present since iOS 15 on all compatible iPhones, but only in FaceTime calls and in those of some other third-party applications as pointed out in 9to5Mac. That they are now expanding to conventional calls should be noticed by the entire general public.
iOS 16.4 will make all our calls sound better
What this voice isolation does is take advantage of the iPhone’s microphones to cancel the ambient sound around us in a call, to focus on our voice and amplify it. In this way our interlocutor will hear us better even when we are in a noisy environment.
We can activate this voice isolation from the Control Center, with a button that will appear during a call to change the microphone mode. At the moment it is only available for those of you who have installed the Release Candidate from iOS 16.4, but it won’t take long to see it released worldwide once the final version of that system is available.
Of course, the voice of the other participants in a call will not be heard better if they do not have an iPhone, or have it but have not updated to iOS 16.4. It is something that we will notice with the passage of time and as the devices update automatically.
