You may have ignored “unknown” callers when they call for so many reasons including fearing an untimely/uncomfortable/tedious/unnecessary conversation. They often don’t leave voicemail, so you are left to wonder if you just refused a call from somebody important.
This single feature may make upgrading to iOS 9 worth the effort.

Apple’s new iOS 9 mobile operating system contains a very cool new feature that attempts to help you out with that problem.
When an unknown caller (or bot) calls, the OS searches through your email for names that might be associated with the phone number calling. When it finds a possible match, it says “Maybe [person’s name]” underneath the phone number on the screen. So if it’s a total stranger calling you who’s never sent you an email, it might not work as well.
This can totally change your decision on whether to take the call. You may have no problem talking to the person during business hours but have no desire to talk to them in the evening, for example.
iOS 9 comes with all sorts of other enhancements, such as a smarter Siri personal assistant, multitasking functionality on the iPad, and new “press and hold” contextual menus on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Apple is pushing iOS 9 very hard — it even launched its first Android app to help users switch.
