Why does my iPhone not ring when I wear my Apple Watch?
The Watch uses Bluetooth to connect to your iPhone, so if your phone is off or out of range, your Watch can’t ring. Additionally, if you have Do Not Disturb enabled on your Watch, or if you’re in Airplane Mode, your Watch won’t ring even if your phone is on.
Finally, if you’re using Notification Center on your iPhone to manage notifications, your Watch notifications will mirror those settings; if you have “Do Not Disturb” turned on for a specific app or contact, your Watch won’t ring for notifications from that app or contact.
Why are incoming calls not ringing?
If you are not receiving incoming calls, there may be several causes of the problem.
First, check if your phone is in Do Not Disturb mode. This mode silences all incoming calls, so if your phone is in this mode, you will not receive any incoming calls. Second, check if your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
If it is, incoming calls will be routed to your voicemail. Lastly, check with your carrier to make sure that your account is active and in good standing.
