Although the Auto Answer Calls feature is helpful in certain situations, we may not always want to answer the phone. Imagine having a private and sensitive conversation with someone, and you get a phone call. You may put the iPhone in silent mode, and the Auto Answer Calls is also enabled. Then, after a few seconds, the phone will automatically pick up the call, and the person on the other end can unintentionally hear your private conversation.

In another case, you may want to avoid a phone call from someone, but the call is automatically picked up before you even take your iPhone out of your pocket. Annoying, right? To turn off Auto Answer Calls on iPhone 11, you must go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Call Audio Routing > Auto-Answer Calls. Tap the green button next to it to turn off the feature.
