Schedule Fake Incoming Calls on iPhone using Third Party Apps
Note: I’ve tried using this on my iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 6s, but it should work on older iPhones as well as the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X.
We’ll be making use of “Spoof Call“, one of the several third-party applications that’s available on the App Store to schedule a fake incoming call on your iPhone. The procedure is fairly simple and all it takes is just a few moments to receive your first fake call. So, simply follow the steps below to get this done in a jiffy:
- First of all, download and install the Spoof Call app from the Apple App Store and open it up. You’ll now see the main menu which displays various options for the fake call. Let’s start with “Time”. Once you tap on it, you’ll be able to schedule the time to receive the fake call. By default, it’s set to “3 seconds later”. However, you can select anywhere between 3 seconds and one hour.
- Now, if you choose the “Caller” option in the app’s main menu, you will be able to type the name of the fake caller to be displayed on the screen. Well, to take it further, you can even change and set the ringtone for the fake call by choosing “Ringtone & Vibration” option in the main menu. Since Marimba is the most widely used iPhone ringtone, we’ve decided to go with this.
- By choosing the “Voice” option from the main menu of the app, users will be able to choose from three different voices for the fake call. If you’re not interested in any, you can can even choose “None” for the call you’re scheduling. Lastly, you can even adjust the background that should be displayed while you’re receiving the call.
