  • Tap Focus in Settings on your iPhone.

When this Focus is on, calls from the chosen friends will now automatically end when they come in. You can turn Focus off when you are ready to take calls again.

Assign a Silent Ringtone to a Contact to Silence Calls

You can give each of your friends a unique ringtone on your iPhone. You can use this function to give people whose calls you don't want to answer a silent ringtone. This way, when they call, your phone will still ring, but you won't hear anything because the ringtone is quiet.

Once you buy the silent ringtone, your iPhone will set it as the usual ringtone for the contact you choose.

In this case, you can turn off their calls with Focus or give them a melody that doesn't sound. Also read - How To Fix Contact Posters On iPhone
