Why are my phone calls coming through on my Mac?

This could be because of continuity calling. Continuity calling allows you to use your iPhone to make and receive calls on your Mac, iPad, and Apple Watch. This feature allows you to answer calls on any device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network and is signed into the same iCloud account, whether it’s a Mac, iPad, or Apple Watch.

Additionally, you can use this feature to make phone calls on your Mac or other device. If you have enabled continuity calling, then the calls will come through on all of your connected devices. You can easily disable this feature if you do not want your calls coming through to your Mac, by going into your iPhone settings and disabling the continuity calling feature.

How do you block Calls on a Macbook Air?

To block calls on a Macbook Air, you can use the built-in call-blocking feature or a third-party app.

The built-in call-blocking feature is available in the FaceTime app. Open the FaceTime app and go to the Preferences tab. Select the Blocking tab and toggle on the ‘Block calls from anyone not in your contacts’ setting.

Why does my iPhone ring on my computer?

If you are logged into the same iCloud account on both your iPhone and computer, then they are synced together through Apple’s device sharing and synchronization feature called Continuity. This allows your iPhone and computer to send and receive calls and information back and forth.

This means that if you receive a call on your iPhone, it will ring on your computer as well and you can answer it. Similarly, you can also make calls from your computer using the same phone number associated with your iPhone.

Additionally, you can send and receive text messages, emails, and other notifications on both devices.

Why does my laptop ring when my phone rings?

This is likely not an issue with your laptop specifically, but is instead a feature of your phone’s settings. Many smartphone settings allow users to customize the “ringer profile” which assigns different sounds, usually music tracks or other tones, to different applications.

This can be done to use different tunes as your default ringer, or assign one to specific contacts that can be changed individually. Additionally, you may be able to set up the phone to play a sound through the laptop’s speakers when the phone is ringing.

This can be done by connecting your phone to the laptop using a USB cable or using the ports to stream the sound from your phone directly to the computer. Doing this allows the two devices to sync up and share the same audio signals.

If this connection has been established on your laptop, then it is very likely that it is playing the same ringer sound as your phone. If you want to fix this issue, you can disconnect the audio connection, adjust the ringer profile on your phone, or disable audio streaming entirely.

How do I stop my Mac from getting my texts?

If you no longer wish for your Mac to receive your text messages, you can turn off the “Messages” feature on your Mac. To do this, open your “System Preferences” window, select the “iMessage” tab, then deselect the checkbox next to “Enable this account”.

This should stop your Mac from receiving any further messages. If you also wish to stop automatically signing into iMessage on all your other Apple devices, you can also deselect “Allow my Apple ID to be used for iMessage”.

Additionally, if you want to prevent people from seeing your name in their contact list when you message them, you can also deselect “Show when messaging” on the same page.

It is also possible to sync your Mac with your mobile device in order to receive text messages on both devices. To do this, open Messages on your Mac, select Messages > Preferences > Accounts, then select “Enable this account” for each device you wish to sync with.

Finally, allow your Apple ID to be used for iMessage on each. This should enable you to receive messages on both devices.

Does deleting Messages on Mac delete from Iphone?

No, deleting messages on Mac will not delete them from your iPhone. Every device keeps its own separate set of messages and conversations, so deleting them on one device will not affect the other. However, if you delete messages or conversations on your iPhone and then sync it to your Mac, they will be deleted from the Mac as well.

Why are notifications not showing up on my iPhone?

There are a few possible reasons why notifications may not be showing up on your iPhone.

First, check to make sure that you’ve enabled notifications in the Settings menu on your iPhone. If you’ve disabled notifications for a particular app, it won’t show up on your phone. Additionally, if your device is in Do Not Disturb mode, notifications won’t appear either.

It’s also worth checking that your iPhone isn’t in Low Power Mode, as notifications may not show up when this is enabled. To disable Low Power Mode, go to Settings > Battery and press the toggle next to Low Power Mode.

Another cause of notifications not appearing could be that you’re not connected to a stable Wi-Fi or cellular network. You can check if you’re connected by swiping up from the home screen for the Control Center, and checking the Wi-Fi and cellular icons.

You can also try resetting the settings on your iPhone. To do this, open Settings, then go to General and scroll down to Reset. This will reset any custom settings you’ve made, so you’ll need to re-enter them afterwards.

If all else fails, you can try restoring your iPhone back to its factory settings. To do this, open Settings and select General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. This will reset your device back to the default settings, so you’ll need to reinstall any apps and set up your accounts again.
