Apple’s “Noise Cancellation” accessibility feature may have been permanently removed from the iPhone 13 series,” according to Engadget, citing a report last week from 9to5Mac. The feature was designed to improve call quality by “[reducing] ambient noise on phone calls when you are holding the receiver to your ear.” From the report: “Phone Noise Cancellation is not available on iPhone 13 models, which is why you do not see this option in [the Accessibility] settings,” Apple support told one of 9to5Mac’s readers. When the reader asked for clarification, the support team confirmed that the feature is “not supported.” Questions about noise cancellation came up on Reddit and Apple support pages shortly after the phone went on sale, with readers noticing that it was no longer available on the Accessibility page. The feature is still available with iOS 15 on past iPhone models, but is nowhere to be found on the iPhone 13.
