How To Block Your Number On iPhone Xs And iPhone Xs Max

As an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max owner, at least when it comes to making regular calls, you have the same options as with any other smartphone. This means that you can also choose to hide your number, though, we wouldn’t recommend you to do so.


If you want to play a prank to someone, you don’t need us to tell you that it’s a bad idea. If you want to make a business call, again, it might suggest your lack of professionalism, even if you’re only hiding your number because you fear that the other person might add it to a list of spam contacts.

Now that we’ve said what we had to say, let’s give you the information that you were looking for on how to block your number on iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max.


If you’re anxious to block iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max number from showing up…

  1. Head straight to the Settings icon for the Phone app’s settings;
  2. Find that option Show My Caller ID and tap on it;
  3. Once you do that, the toggle next to it should change from On to Off.


By disabling the Show Caller ID option, you have blocked iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max from displaying your SIM card number whenever you’re making a call. Instead of it, the other device will display a Blocked or an Unknown pop-up message. Just pay attention to the “whenever” part! This is a permanent change that can only be reversed manually!
