How to Disconnect Specific Callers During a Conference Call and Have Private Conversations on iPhone?
When you are on a Conference Call, you can also talk with one particular person privately and also can disconnect people on the call separately. For that, you need to follow the steps given below.
But keep this in mind that the person who called first and added the people later on onto the call can see all the participants present on the Conference Call.
Step 1. Select the ‘i’ icon located just at the right side of the name of the participant’s name. (iOS 7 and later on) or select the arrow next to conference (iOs6 and earlier versions) on top of your screen.
Step 2. Select Private next to the name of the person you wish to talk with privately on the Conference screen.
You can also remove specific participants from the conference call without ending the call altogether. To hang up on a specific person:
- On iOS 7 and late, tap on End next to the name of the conference call participant you want to disconnect.
- On iOS 6 or earlier, if you want to remove someone from a conference call, hit the red phone icon next to their name, then select End.
