HOW TO CONFERENCE CALL ON iPHONE6
A conference call, also known as a teleconference, is a phone call that allows a group of people to communicate with each other at the same time using a mobile phone, landline or internet connection.
The fundamental feature of a conference call is that it allows users to participate in conversations without having to be physically present in the same room. They can participate in the conversation from anywhere if they have a working phone connection, whether it’s a mobile phone, landline or an internet connection.
However, the good news is that you can also conference call on your iPhone6. Using the iPhone’s merge calls feature, you can talk to up to five people at once in a conference call. This has been an option since the first iPhone was released. What a great idea Apple has come up with!
In addition to saving time and money, a conference call allows you to communicate with friends or coworkers who may be distributed throughout the country, saving you money on travel charges and expense claims for accommodation and meal costs.
The iPhone6 conference call guide in a summary
Make a call to the first person you’d like to speak with. Put them on hold for now. To make a second call, tap Add Call. Once the second call has been made, tap Merge Calls. You can repeat this technique until your iPhone conference call has up to five participants. By pressing Hold Call + Answer, then Merge Calls, you can add new incoming callers to the iPhone conference call.
Making a conference call on your iPhone6 is simple and straightforward. Let’s take a closer look at the procedure now.
Here’s how to do it:
Call the first person you’d like to talk with on your iPhone6. Tap Add Call from the in-call menu once they pick up and the call begins. While you dial the second number, the original call will be put on hold (if you don’t see the in-call menu, tap the Hide Keypad item to see the in-call screen). When the second number answers, tap Merge Calls to combine all of your current calls into a single call. You can repeat this process until you have five individuals on the line at the same time.
Three helpful hints for managing your iPhone6 conference call:
After you’ve set together your conference call, imagine yourself as the one in charge of the conference.
This gives you some very valuable unique abilities that allow you to control what happens on the call, such as removing people from the call, talking privately with one person, or even adding someone new (or an incoming call) to the conference call.
The first hint is to remove one person from the conference call. All you have to do is tap the I button next to their name, then End. The next step to take is to talk alone with one person. You only have to tap the I button next to the person’s name, then select Private to gossip about the rest of the call.
To return to the conference, tap Merge calls. The last helpful hint is to add an incoming call from a relative, friend or colleague by selecting Hold Call plus Answer, picking up the call, and then selecting Merge Calls.
Your iPhone6 is still functional!
You can still use your iPhone6 while on the call:
If you press the Mute button, other people will no longer be able to hear you, but you will still be able to hear them.
To quit the call screen, simply hit the Home button to go check Twitter, read a document, or do something else. After that, you can use your iPhone as usual. You can still listen and speak to others in your conference call, and you can return to it by tapping Touch to go back to call at the top of your iPhone6 screen.
You won’t be able to exit the conference without ending it, therefore you won’t be able to hand over management of the chat to someone else.
Have you ever wondered what all the buttons on your phone’s dialer indicate while you’re making a call? One of these, the ‘Add Call’ button, is used in today’s tip.
It can be used to add persons to an existing call. This is simple to do and only works with a GSM connection; if you use Voice over LTE (VoLTE), it may not work.
