Question: I just want the speaker phone. How?

Before iOS 11, when I dialed a phone number and it started connecting, in the upper right-hand corner of the keypad it said Speaker, and I would tap it, and I would be using a speaker phone (which I always use).


Now, with iOS 11, when I dial a number, and it starts connecting the keypad button shows Audio with a Bluetooth icon, and when if I tap it it shows iPhone, Speaker, and I guess, one of my Macs as Mac-XXXXXXXXXXX.


Again, I always want the speaker phone, and this process just adds an unnecessary menu and a tap. How can I stop the phone from showing the Mac, and if I can do that will it still make me pick between iPhone and Speaker?

Answer:

The answer (for me) is to go to the Settings app -> General -> Accessibility -> Call Audio Routing, and change the default from Automatic -> Speaker which now makes it even easier to always use the speaker phone for my dialed calls.

Thanks. I thought of that but was scared I might lose things like Air Drop, FaceTime calls, etc. and who knows what else by disconnecting a computer I use throughout the day. But luckily I found a cure elsewhere.
