If you own an iPhone and an iPad, you may have noticed that every time you receive an incoming call on your iPhone, your iPad also rings. And there’s a pretty good chance that you don’t want to take the call on your iPad, because its hecking inconvenient! Luckily, there’s a simple way to stop phone calls from ringing on your iPad. Here’s how to do it.
How to Stop Phone Calls from Ringing on Your iPad
1. Open the Settings app on iPad.
2. On the left pane, tap FaceTime.
3. On the right pane, toggle the Calls from iPhone option to turn if Off.
Now the iPad will no longer receive phone calls and it won’t ring when you receive a call on your iPhone.
If you want to start receiving calls on your iPad at any time, you simply come back to this page and toggle the Calls from iPhone feature to On mode again.
Just know that turning off the Calls from iPhone button does not affect your FaceTime video or audio calls. It will only turn off the inbound calls from your iPhone.
Calls from iPhone Feature
The Calls from iPhone feature on your iPad lets you make and receive phone calls using your iPhone cellular account, when your iPhone is nearby. This may be useful for some users, but obviously not for all, and not all the time anyway.
You’ll mostly find this feature on iPad models that come with Wi-Fi, including those models that do not have cellular capabilities.
We’re not really sure why this feature is showing up in the FaceTime section of the iPad, because these calls have nothing to do with Facetiming on the iPad.
Finally, if you also own a Mac, you may have noticed the same thing happening there too. And if that annoys you, you can turn off the feature on your Mac to stop your Mac from ringing when you receive calls on your iPhone.
Now that you know how to do this, next time if someone asks you “why does my iPad ring?” you know how to help them fix the issue.
