iOS 14.5 Tips and Tricks: How to find out if someone has blocked you on their iPhone?

Portless Apple iPhone problems

What if you find that you can’t get through to a particular person after multiple attempts, is there a way to tell if they have blocked you on their iPhone? Let’s find out!

Before we get to the tips, know this: it is tricky to know for sure if you have been blocked. But hopefully, you’ll be able to find out one way or another.

The most likely scenario is that you’re being paranoid, and the other person just hasn’t got around to replying to your message or calling you back.

But, if it’s not all in your mind, here are some signs that you might’ve been blocked on an iPhone. If you need to be 100 percent sure, you’ll need to ask them in person.

How to find out if someone has blocked you on their iPhone?

What happens to a blocked phone call?

When calling from the blocked number, the caller hears either one ring or no rings at all, but the other phone remains silent. The caller is then informed that the recipient isn’t available, and is diverted to voicemail (if that service is set up by the person you’re calling).

There doesn’t seem to be a reason why the number of rings varies, but if you hear two or more, you can be pretty sure you haven’t been blocked.

What happens to a blocked text message?

If you have an iPhone and try to send an iMessage to someone who has blocked you, it will remain blue (which means it’s still an iMessage). However, the person you’ve been blocked by will never receive that message.

Note that you don’t get a ‘Delivered’ notification like you usually would, but this in itself is not proof that you’ve been blocked. However, with this, you get a pretty clear picture that you could be blocked.

Wrapping Up

The call is the best source of evidence to determine whether or not you’ve been blocked by an iPhone user. The key is that you will always be diverted to voicemail after exactly one ring.

If they were declining your call, the number of rings would vary each time, and if the phone was switched off, it wouldn’t ring at all.

Also, keep in mind that Do Not Disturb will also cut you off after exactly one ring, so don’t get too worried if your calls aren’t going through at 3 am.
