One of the ways your iPhone saves you from a few kinds of annoyances is that it lets you block a number on your device. By blocking a number on your device, you will no longer get any calls or messages from that phone number on your device.

This is extremely useful when you get a number of unwanted calls or messages from a number but you do not have a way to stop them. Even saying those not to call or message you fails many time if that person has made you their target for calls and messages.

If you are in such a situation, you should consider using the block number feature that is built right into the OS of your iPhone. Blocking and unblocking a number on a red iPhone 7 or an iPhone 6 is as easy as going through a couple of panels.

Once a number has been blocked, that person will no longer be able to annoy you anymore as your iPhone will simply discard their calls and messages for you letting you have peace of mind.

Way1: Block a Number on an iPhone 7 Plus/7/6s/6 Through Phone App

You do not need a third-party app to do the job as the built-in options on your iPhone can get the job done for you.

Way 2: Block Calls on an iPhone 7 Plus/7/6s/6 Through Settings

Another easy to block calls on iPhone is through iOS Settings. In this way you can block someone who has been added to your phone's Contacts. Also, you don't need any third-party software. Go to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking and Identification > Block Contact

The specified phone number is now blocked on your device and you will no longer receive any communications from that number. If you would like to first export the number of the person before blocking them, then you can do that using the Tenorshare iCareFone app, a professional app to transfer iOS files without iTunes restrictions.
