How to Enable Phone Calls from Mac with iPhone

What to do if you are waiting for an important call from your business partner but have to charge your iPhone in your room? If you are worrying about missing this important call, you can set up and receive the phone call on your Mac. That’s very easy as long as you are using iPhone (iOS 8 or later) and Mac (Mac OS X Yosemite and later). Let’s see how to enable phone calls from Mac with iPhone.

How to Enable Calls from Mac with iPhone

Step 1. Set Up iPhone Cellular Calls on iPhone
To enable phone calls on Mac, you have to set up on your iPhone first. Go to “Settings” > “FaceTime” and turn on “iPhone Cellular Calls” on your iPhone which runs iOS 8. If you use your iPhone on iOS 9, go to “Settings” > “Phone” and you will see the same toggle. Just turn it on.
Step 2. Set Up iPhone Cellular Call on Mac
Turn to your Mac which has signed in with the same Apple ID as your iPhone. Open “FaceTime” on your Mac and choose “Preferences…” in the drop down list. Then, tick the box next to “iPhone Cellular Calls” in the preference window.
Note: Make sure that both your iPhone and Mac are connected to the same Wi-Fi connection. And now, you can receive phone calls on your Mac. This also works perfectly on your iPad.
It’s very simple, isn’t it? If you think that it is annoying to have your iPhone, iPad and Mac ringing at the same time, you can also stop calls from other device except for iPhone with ease.
