Let’s see some merits and demerits of this eye-catching auto-answer call feature.

Pros of Automatic Answer iPhone incoming calls without sliding:

It provides the facility to receive iPhone cellular calls, FaceTime Audio/ Video, Whatsapp, Viber, and Facebook Messenger and popular third-party apps support receive calls automatically interface. Also, Skype audio and video you can receive on iPhone lock screen and phone standby mode.

One of the great iOS 11 function case it is useful when you are riding your motorcycle or driving vehicle like the car, truck, etc.

Cons of Auto- calls Answer:

Limited for some Video call apps, we tested, and as a result, I won’t receive Whatsapp Video automatically, as well same Unable to auto receive video chatting from Messenger. There is no ability to auto-answer incoming Skype video call on the iPhone lock screen.

A significant disadvantage of this feature is that whenever users set 0 seconds, that time caller can’t get time to hear call ringing and so that it pushes Missed call function out of the pipeline.  

Hope, an Apple will be expanded Auto receive calls feature only for favorites callers, enrolled contacts just. Still, I can’t see this type of tidbit.
