Some iPhone owners must have noticed this when you receive a call; some people get an option of “accept” and “decline” buttons, whereas others simply have a “Swipe To Answer” slider! The question is, why two different options for the same function?
This Twitter user also had the same query,
IS IT JUST ME CAUSE I CANT FIGURE OUT WHY I CAN CHOOSE TO DECLINE SOMETIMES AND SOMETIMES I CANT. pic.twitter.com/SqwN6xgaHW

This might seem alien for Android users, but still might be useful if you want to own an iPhone sometime in the future.
One might think that this might have to do with the iPhone model of the caller, or the caller using the phone other than an iPhone. But as it turns out, it only depends on the type of the recipient’s phone!
The difference is between an unlocked screen and a locked screen. If you are using an unlocked phone (screen), no matter who’s the caller, you will get two options of either rejecting or accepting the calls. Whereas if your phone screen is locked, you can either slide it to accept OR you can reject the call by pressing your volume down button twice.
Oh, sweet, sweet knowledge!
if you have the swipe option(phone locked) you can lock the phone again and it will reject the call
