How To Set Up Voicemail on iPhone 12

In this post, we at Salusdigital will show you how to set up voicemail on the iPhone 12.

Setting up voicemail on an iPhone 12 is a crucial step in making sure the user doesn’t miss out on an important call. While setting up an iPhone 12 in general is as easy as following the prompts displayed on the screen, adding a voicemail is also a simple process that requires only a few steps to complete. Adding to the simplicity, the steps are very similar between carriers, including Verizon and AT&T.

Various changes came with the new iPhone model, including the decision to not include new chargers in the box. While many of the core features of an iPhone tend not to change that often, there are times when they do.

For example, starting with the iPhone X, Apple changed how the user turns off or restarts the iPhone, though it is still a user-friendly process. Wireless MagSafe charging, the A14 Bionic chip, and a Ceramic Shield to protect the screen are among the new features of the iPhone 12 series.

There are also plenty of features that iPhone users will already be familiar with, including Siri and Apple Pay.
