If you are an iPhone user you must have cursed apple at one instance or the other for not including the ability to delete individual calls from call history on iPhone. However, iOS 5 fills that hole and allows you to delete any call from Recents.
At WWDC 2011, Apple demonstrated just ten new features in iOS 5 but in total there are over 200 features. The latest one discovered by developers is the ability to delete individual calls.
Earlier, you could delete only the whole call history list unless you installed a jailbreak tweak from Cydia like CallClear or CallDelete. Finally, Apple has paid a little attention to the smaller yet essential iOS features the customers had been asking for.
Apple’s iPhone has many great features that other smartphones don’t have like FaceTime, multitasking etc. but there are certain smaller features too that other phones have and iPhone does not have. For example, bluetooth file transfer(possible with Celeste jailbreak tweak now) or deleting individual calls. If you made a call from someone’s iPhone that you don’t want the iPhone to see or have a prying wife or girlfriend you might be really wanting this feature.
How to Delete Individual Calls in iOS 5:
Just go to Phone > Recents and delete any call using either of the following two methods:
- Swipe sideways on any call and tap Delete
- Tap Edit at the top and then the (-) button on any call to get the delete option
Now you don’t need to rely on any jailbreak tweak to delete calls from your iPhone. If you want to try iOS 5 yourself and play with the new features refer to our full iOS 5 install guide.
