    I just received a call that I didn't get to because when I tried to slide to answer it didn't work. Why is that?

    I'm not sure how someone would be able to answer that question. Do you mean the screen was frozen? Or did the slide appear to work but it didn't answer the call?

    You just have to tap the green phone, no need to slide since iOS 10 so it might be why.

    It happens sometimes, just give it a split second and try again, but slowly.

    Lol. I answer my phone 20 times a day and totally didn't pick up on the fact that there isn't a slide to answer. Glad you did.

    Edit: wait, isn't it slide to answer when the phone is locked?

    I've had that happen numerous times with my 5s. I've always thought it was either the screen being locked up or my finger tip was to dry for the screen to acknowledge.

    Yes, if it's locked, it's slide to answer. Mine is on 10.1.1.

    If phone is locked, it is slide to answer.

    I've had this too. Bummer when it happens but call the person back or they will.
