Apple Live Voicemail for iOS 17


With iOS 17, Apple is introducing Apple Live Voicemail. This feature gives iPhone users the ability to see real-time transcription as someone leaves a voicemail, and the opportunity to pick up while the caller is leaving their message.



Live Voicemail will be toggled ON by default when a compatible device* has been upgraded to iOS 17.


To turn Live Voicemail ON or OFF:   Settings  >  Phone  >  Live Voicemail  >  On / Off
