Have you tried putting the RC APP in the task bar?  I haven't updated to iOS 10 yet but it worked on the previous releases.

The ability to answer from the lock screen, such as a normal call, is not something we presently have with iOS 10. However, iOS 10 did include the CallKit API, which will allow us to implement that capability in the future. I am an unaware of a time frame for this at present though.

I would recommend adding your desire to this thread  https://community.ringcentral.com/ringcentral/topics/ios-allow-calls-to-be-unanswered-without-unlock..., which is for this very thing. The more votes it gets, the better, as it helps our product team prioritize customer desires.

*Yes* to CallKit.  Skype just released their update and it is great.  I am sure RC would reap the benefits of also leveraging CallKit.

I'm not sure I understand the issue Charlie is describing.  You said *auto* answer in the title, but you just mean answer, right? I have ios 10 and it works basically as it always has- phone is locked and idle, I see incoming call message banner, long hold the message, press answer and unlock phone with fingerprint or code.

Are you seeing an alert on your lock screen when the call comes in?  If not check setting > notifications and maybe you disabled it?
