Mac, Tutorials

Are you tired of constantly switching between your iPhone and Mac when you receive a call? Well, there’s good news for you!

You can actually configure your iPhone to allow calls using your Mac. This not only makes it more convenient to manage your calls but also helps you stay focused on your work without any interruptions.

Step 1: Update Your Devices

Before we dive into the configuration process, make sure that both your iPhone and Mac are updated to the latest software versions. This ensures compatibility and smooth functionality.

Step 2: Enable Wi-Fi Calling

In order to allow calls using your Mac, you need to enable Wi-Fi calling on both devices. To do this:

  • On iPhone: Open the Settings app, go to “Phone,” and toggle on “Wi-Fi Calling.

  • On Mac: Open the FaceTime app, click on “FaceTime” in the menu bar, and select “Preferences.” Check the box next to “iPhone Cellular Calls. “

Step 3: Connect Your Devices

To connect your iPhone and Mac for call forwarding:

  1. On iPhone: Go back to the “Phone” section in Settings, tap on “Calls on Other Devices,” and toggle on the option for your Mac.
  2. On Mac: In FaceTime Preferences, ensure that both devices are using the same Apple ID. Also, make sure that FaceTime is turned on.


If you have multiple Apple devices connected with the same Apple ID, make sure to repeat these steps for each device you want to use for call forwarding.

Step 4: Test the Configuration

Now that you’ve configured your iPhone and Mac, it’s time to test if everything is working smoothly. You can do this by making a test call from another device to your iPhone. If everything is set up correctly, the call will ring on your Mac as well.

You’re all set! Now you can enjoy the convenience of managing your calls directly from your Mac while working or even when your iPhone is not within reach. Remember, this configuration allows calls to be forwarded to your Mac only when both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and have a stable internet connection.

By following these simple steps, you’ve taken a big leap towards streamlining your communication and increasing productivity. So go ahead, configure your iPhone to allow calls using your Mac, and make multitasking a breeze!
