If you have an iPhone and a Mac, there’s a good chance your phone calls will ring on both devices. Connected to the same iCloud account and the same Wi-Fi network, your Mac can indeed take over calls received on your iPhone, so you don’t have to switch from one device to another.

This feature may be very handy, but it can also be quite a pain when you are focused on a task that the iPhone call notification sounds on your Mac.
If it is possible to temporarily block calls from iPhone to Mac by activating the function Do not disturb, you can also choose to simply turn off iPhone calls on macOS. There are two ways to do this. Here they are.

Also to discover in video:

1. From iPhone

To prevent calls received on your iPhone from arriving on your Mac, open the Settings from iOS, enter the menu Phone, then in the section Calls, go to the menu On other devices


You can choose to deactivate iPhone call authorization on the affected device, or completely deactivate Calls on other devices. When this option is deselected, calls received on iPhone will no longer display on your Mac.

2. From macOS

It’s also possible to mute iPhone calls on your Mac right in macOS.

To do this, open the FaceTime application, and go to the Preferences of the application using the keyboard shortcut command +, or by clicking on the menu FaceTime> Preferences.

In the window that opens, in the tab of Settings, uncheck the option Calls from iPhone.

You should now be relaxed and no longer disturbed by your iPhone while working on your Mac.
