On iOS 14, Apple introduced persistent call banners instead of full screen notifications. This means that when your iPhone is unlocked, regular incoming VoIP calls, FaceTime, and third parties only take up a small space at the top. This compact UI feature is activated by default. However, if you want a large contact picture in an incoming call, or don’t like the new style and prefer the old way, here’s how to enable full screen calls on iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
How to Activate Full Screen Incoming Calls on iPhone on iOS 14
- Open the Settings application on your iOS 14 device.
- Scroll down and tap Phone.
- Tap Incoming Call.
- Select Full Screen.
From now on, all incoming calls when your iPhone is unlocked will display full screen – as happened on iOS 13 and all previous versions.
Incoming calls when the device is locked still take the entire screen (which is nice).
To reactivate it, follow the same steps, and select Banner.
How to Activate Full Screen Calls on iOS 14 and iPadOS 14
The steps for FaceTime calls and iPad calls that are shown on the iPad from the iPhone, are almost the same. This is how you do it.
From now on incoming calls on applications such as Skype, WhatsApp, etc. Will also occupy full screen.
This is how you can turn off incoming call notification banners and choose full screen mode on the iPhone and iPad.
iOS 14 has introduced several changes, and most of them are amazing. Take, for example, the Application Library that lets you have a clean, clutter-free Home Screen. You can even use the Android method and choose not to have the app icon on the iPhone’s Home Screen!
