In iOS 14, Apple introduces persistent call banners instead of full-screen notifications. This is to say, whenever your iPhone is unlocked, regulars calls, FaceTime, and third-party VoIP incoming calls will appear in a compact, small space at the top of your screen.

  1. Thank you for this fix. Part of the reason I switched from Android to Iphone was to get AWAY from this feature. It’s an accident waiting to happen when you are driving and can’t find the tiny answer screen. I have almost ran into the back of people/ran off the road trying to answer the phone while driving. Thankfully Apple will let you turn this off.
