The iPhone is continually evolving thanks in part to the wide array of applications available in the App Store. Users can install apps that let them check in with social networks, keep track of finances, and even find a great new restaurant. With so many innovations, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that the device is a cell phone with standard features. Answering calls automatically on the iPhone is possible using a third-party app, but this add-on is only available for jailbroken phones.

Step 1

Tap the "Cydia" icon on your iPhone and then tap the "Search" icon.

Step 2

Search for "AutoAnswer." Tap on this term when it appears in the search results to display the application's information screen.

Step 3

Tap the "Purchase" button at the top right to purchase and install the AutoAnswer app on your phone.

Step 4

Tap the "Settings" icon, and then tap the "Auto Answer" option.

Step 5

Tap the "PhoneCall Settings" option. You can choose to auto-answer only certain phone numbers, or you can auto-answer all incoming calls. When you've finished adjusting the settings, tap the "Home" button to return to the iPhone main screen. Incoming calls will be automatically answered based on your settings.
