How To Answer A Call From Your Apple Devices

Many a person has contemplated the question, “how do I use my iPad as a phone?” and never really received a detailed answer that helped them. Here I will show you how you can easily make calls, receive and send messages and use your iPad basically like a phone. All the amenities that are available on your phone but not your iPad can all be accessed by one easy trick.

Continuity! Yes, that is it! This simple amenity can open doors of amazing smartphone features to you. Some of them may include the SMS attribute, instantaneous Hotspot, Cell phone calling and Handoff. Continuity gives you an experience that all envy and long to have. It allows you to impeccably switch through your iPod touch/ iPad/Mac/iPhone/…with just one click.

Before, you can start with the whole process you can first of all check out the system requirements (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6555) of Continuity. Make sure that your Apple devices meet with all the requirements, or else the process will not be completed.

Making Phone Calls:

It is very easy to receive and make calls via Continuity. Whether you are currently using your iPad or iPod or Mac, you only have to make sure that they all connected on one WiFi network. Otherwise your calls will not be connected or transferred.

How-to:

  • You can start with signing in to your iCloud account, from all of your devices. Mac, iPhone, iPad…everything.
  • Next up, turn the Bluetooth feature on all your devices. Ensure that your devices are close to one another.
  • Now connect all your devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Also you should connect all your devices to FaceTime, from the very same iCloud account. That usually means that all your Apple devices which share your Apple ID can receive your phone calls.
  • Your Wi-Fi calling feature should be turned off. You can turn it off by going to Settings > Phone and there you will find ‘Wi-Fi calling”.

How to Make a Call

Fetch your iPod touch, iPad, Mac or iPhone and tap/click any number you have in your Calendar or Contacts.
