Whether you're tired of getting spam calls from a number you don't recognize, or you need to finally separate yourself from your ex and move on (just do it already!), the iPhone's blocking feature can seriously come in handy.

It allows you to block people you don't have in your contacts list based on their phone number or email address, as well as blocking contacts whose information you've already stored.

When you block a contact on iPhone, it means they will no longer be able to contact you. If you want to check who you have blocked, you can access the list of blocked contacts on your iPhone.

Here's how to do it.
