In one of those small yet important changes, Apple has finally added a feature many have been requesting for a long time: call-blocking. The feature not only blocks phone calls from numbers you’ve blocked, but text messages and FaceTime calls too … 

Phone, FaceTime and Messages blocking to prevent specific people from being able to contact you.

So if you get nuisance calls from telemarketeers, or have an ex who just won’t take no for an answer, life is about to get quieter.
