If you want to call from the contact, simply tap the selected contact and tap on the number which you want to dial. Your call will be automatically placed.

Similarly, you can dial the recent or your favourites just by tapping the number. For making the call with the keypad, type the number you want to call and tap on the call button.

But it is not necessary to be iPhones with other participants too. Any of the phones can be used by the participants. Only iPhone is needed for making a call to the participants.

Note the call options which will appear

The six boxes will appear on the screen i.e. Mute, Keypad, Speaker, Add Call, Contacts, and FaceTime, when you will dial a call.

Add a third caller

When the first participant receives your call, the button of “Add Call” will be brighter. For starting the third call with another participant, tap on the “Add Call” button.

Make a call to the third participant

When you are connected with the first participant, you can connect to other participants from your contacts or by dialling a number in the keyboard. You can find these both options among the six boxes which are on your call screen.

  • When you tap on the “Add Call” button, the first participant’s call will be on hold. It will be better to make him/her know that they will be temporarily on hold.

  • While having a call, you can also receive other calls. For receiving other calls, simply tap on the “Hold and Accept/Answer” button. Tap on the “Merge calls” button when the call has been answered. If you don’t want to accept the call, tap on “Send to voicemail” button. If you want to accept the incoming call by terminating your current call, simply tap on the “End and Accept” button.
  • you can also easily record the phone calls of iPhones.

Merge your calls

When you are connected to the third participant, tap on “Merge Calls” button to get the option same as on the previous call as an “Add Call” button.

This will remove the first participant from the hold and connect the new participants to the call too.

Add more conference participants

Up to five participants can be added to the call. Repeat the step of “Add Call” and “Merge Calls” as needed. But remember that, whenever you add the new participants to the call, the older one will be placed on hold.

Likewise, you can also make a group and share the group messages among the participants. the upgraded version of iOS Messages app directly supports the group chat.
