How to Make Incoming iPhone Calls Show as Full Screen Again

Since iOS 14, the incoming phone calls show as a small banner across the top of the screen when your iPhone is in use. As a result, your ongoing usage is not interrupted all of a sudden. However, in the earlier versions of iOS, the incoming calls would take up the full screen.
