Almost every new iPhone user faces one primitive, at first glance, problem – how to drop a call if there is only a slider on the screen “Answer”? In fact, there are as many as three ways to reject an incoming call, which we will cover in this article.
So, to begin with, we’ll deal with the call screen interface, which functionally has not changed much since the first models of the device.

How to reset an incoming call on iPhone (smartphone screen unlocked)
If at the time of the call you are using the device (that is, the smartphone is unlocked and is not in sleep mode), then the reset problem is actually not relevant, there are two buttons on the screen – Reject and “To answer”, the first one is responsible for dropping the call.

How to reject an incoming call on iPhone (smartphone screen is locked)
If the gadget is locked, then the ill-fated slider appears instead of buttons “Answer”, which some users in vain try to spend not fully forward, and then return back to reset the call. In fact, on-screen controls in this case will not help – this is done for security reasons, to avoid accidental clicking in your pocket.
To reset a call, you must use the physical buttons – one click on Side button or volume keys will put the smartphone into vibration mode (turn off the sound), and then press Side button will clear an incoming call (or just double tap Side buttons)

Reject an incoming call on iPhone using the Remind me later feature
There is a third way to reject a call at an inopportune time or from an unwanted subscriber – using the function “Remind”. The corresponding on-screen button is available in the call screen interface in any case (when making calls to both “sleeping” and unlocked phones). Moreover, in Reminders A record will be saved stating that you were going to call the “reset” subscriber.
