The iPhone 13 series phone does not support noise cancellation that is available on earlier models, Apple Support reportedly said as an update to a user query. Shortly after the launch of the latest iPhone lineup, some users noted the absence of a dedicated noise cancellation option, which on earlier iPhone models people could find through accessibility settings. This was considered a bug since the regular iPhone 13, as well as the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 Mini, can be used for noise cancellation purposes during voice calls. .
9to5Mac reports That Apple Support on Twitter responded to one of the users asking for the noise cancellation option on the iPhone 13 series, saying the feature is not exclusive to the new model.
“Phone noise cancellation is not available on the iPhone 13 model, which is why you don’t see this option in Settings,” Apple Support said on the website.
The user later sought clarification on whether the iPhone 13 series would not support noise cancellation for phone calls. The Apple Support team responded by saying that it is not supported.
phone noise cancellation helps Users have the ability to manually control whether ambient noise during phone calls can be reduced when they hold the phone to their ear. This feature is present on earlier iPhone models and is available as an option that users can access by visiting Adjustment , easy use , audio/visual,
However, if you’re on the regular iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max or iPhone 13 Mini, the noise cancellation option doesn’t appear.
Last month, a user on Reddit complained about the lack of noise cancellation option on the iPhone 13. Several other users echoed the complaint and wondered why the new iPhone series doesn’t offer that support. One of the users posted the absence of the option on the Apple Community forums in October, months before user complaints were raised on Reddit.
Apple is yet to confirm the lack of noise cancellation on the iPhone 13 series. It is also important to note that the new model has enough hardware to offer the feature.
Despite the lack of noise cancellation option, iPhone 13 users still have voice isolation mode which was introduced Last year with iOS 15 and designed to use machine learning to block out ambient noise. It can be enabled during a call by opening Control Center and then tapping on Mic Mode.
However, voice isolation mode is not available for normal voice calls and is Facetime available for calls this moment. However, developers may enable its support for their voice calling apps in the future.
