Genius iPhone feature REMOVED by Apple – did you notice?

APPLE has made the unusual decision to quietly remove a feature from the latest iPhones while keeping it alive on older devices.

Normally you would expect the most recent releases to have the upper hand over previous, but not this time it seems.

A genius accessibility option used on the iPhone is nowhere to be seen on iPhone 13 models.

The Phone Noise Cancellation setting is a useful tool for those with hearing difficulties.

It basically prevents ambient noise to make phone calls clearer.

The shock departure came to light after a user reported it to 9to5Mac.

A reader called Steve told the site: “After working with Apple and a senior advisor for months saying to wait for an update to fix the issue, I got an update regarding the issue, and apparently, it won’t be fixed and noise cancelation is intentionally disabled for those devices for unspecified reasons."

Eventually, he was told: "Phone Noise Cancellation is not available on iPhone 13 models, which is why you do not see this option in Settings."

It's not clear why the tech giant decided to remove the feature.

For a while, many thought it may have been an iOS bug.

Some were under the impression Apple were actually working on a fix.

But it doesn't look like Phone Noise Cancellation will be making a comeback.

A rep for the firm told the 9to5Mac that "it is not supported".

Removing features, especially for those accessible ones, is a rare move by Apple.
