Tired of receiving phone calls from your iPhone on your Mac or iPad? You can stop this feature in a few easy steps.

You Can Pick up iPhone Calls on Your Mac or iPad, But You Can Disable the Feature Completely and Make it Stop for Good

With the introduction of Continuity, you can send and receive text messages from your Mac or iPad and even pick up phone calls, without ever having to pick up your iPhone. How cool is that? It's pretty cool and extremely useful, too.

While we do make use of this feature a lot, but it can get annoying at times especially when a call comes through and all of a sudden your iPad and Mac are ringing away at the same time. So, if you do not want to receive phone calls from your iPhone on your Mac or iPad ever again then you can stop this feature completely.


Step 1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.

Step 2. Scroll down and tap on Phone.

Step 3. Open Calls on Other Devices.

Step 4. Turn off the Allow Calls on Other Devices toggle switch as shown in the screenshot below. If you like, you can turn the feature off for a select device as well.

Whenever someone calls you on your iPhone, you won't get a notification for it on your Mac or iPad from now on. If that is something you wanted, then you're obviously a winner today. Of course, you can always reverse the change by following the above steps again and turning the feature on at the end.

For me, this feature is actually very handy since I do not like working on two devices at the same time. If I can handle everything and anything on one device without having to pick up the other, it's a huge deal for me, and I'm glad Apple has made things way more convenient with Continuity.

Continuity is a feature that comes as part of the Apple ecosystem. Just sign in with your Apple ID on every device you own and they will all work together and offer similar features across the board. You can even send out text messages using your HomePod if you like. If you think that's not crazy enough, you can create reminders that will sync across all your devices. Calling and texting is a very small part of the whole ecosystem.
