Today, the call conferencing facility is accessible to more people than ever. Earlier, it was limited to a few large enterprise businesses only. If your carrier supports it, you can readily host a conference call on iPhone and connect with multiple people at the same time. In short, your iPhone can work as an excellent solution to host a small conference phone call. Let’s see how to get started!

So, in just a few steps you can set up a small meeting and start talking privately.
How to have conference call on iPhone
The iPhone conference call is part of the iPhone Phone app. You can get started by picking up a contact from the Dialer app.
Allow the call to connect.
Tap the add call button as shown in the image above.
Dial the second person and wait for the call to connect.
Next, tap the Merge calls button to add the participants and start the conference.
If you would like to add additional people, repeat the above steps. Here, if you don’t see the option to add another call, it means you have reached the limit of participants for your carrier.
It is important to mention here that the names of all participants who joined the conference call will be visible only to the person who started the conference call. However, if a participant adds someone else, he can see the name of the person added and the person who started the conference call.
If you would like to remove someone from the conference, midway, tap the info button.
Tap the End button just adjacent to the person that you want to remove. If you don’t see the option to remove a caller, it’s likely that the current call or your carrier does not support the feature.
In the same way, you can add an incoming call when you are on a conference call by tapping Hold & Accept. Then, tap merge calls.
iPhone conference call limit?
You can set up a conference call and connect with up to five people. However, the number of participants, as well as the ability to add, merge, or disconnect individual callers may vary depending on the carrier service the user has subscribed to.
Hope that makes sense!
