How To Block A Text On iPhone

As an iPhone user, I do respect the way Apple build the wall for spammers and hackers. I feel safer using Apple’s ecosystem. Also, I receive dozens of text messages daily from unknown groups. I get daily messages for advertisement, skincare, gym, marketing, share market apps, and a lot on my iPhone. Hence, I decided to block a text on iPhone from unknown senders. 

After iOS 7, Apple decided to give options to kick out spammers by blocking unwanted iPhone calls. Whether you are tired of any conversion or want to stop some marketing contacts, here, we will show you the simple and quickest ways to block text messages on iPhone 12, iPhone 11, or any older iPhone 7. Also, these method works on iOS 7 or iOS 15 running devices. Without further talk, let me take you to the guide to restrict text messages on iPhone. 

How To Block Unwanted or Spam Texts On iPhone

Either you can block text messages in iOS from the contacts app or iMessage app. Let’s check out both methods one by one. Don’t worry about the sender; they won’t affect or do not get any notification.

Note: We tried these methods on iOS 14 running device.
