Quick Tip: Customize iOS auto-response texts

iOS allows you to easily decline a call with a follow up text message to let the caller know why you aren’t available. It comes with a few of them built in (I’m on my way, Can I call you later?, etc.), but you can also easily customize this list to respond with a more personal response. Some ideas might be:

  • I’m in class
  • I’m in a meeting
  • I’m on a conference call

To set your own list, go to Settings → Phone → Respond with Text.
