Maybe not many know it but your iPad is able to make calls as if it were an iPhone. And I am not referring to FaceTime calls but to normal calls to any type of number and device. This is a function that Apple included some time ago in iOS called Continuity and that will be of great help on many occasions.
The only thing you need to start or answer a call from the iPad is to have your iPhone nearby and that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. That is, work when we are at home. We must also have at least iOS 8.1, but by now we all surely have a much more modern version on our devices.
This is called from the iPad
It should be clarified that the iPad is not able to make calls by itself, for that reason you need our iPhone to be able to do it. The first thing you will have to do is activate a couple of settings on both your iPhone and your iPad.
Settings you must activate on the iPhone
- We headed up Settings.
- Click on Phone> Calls on other devices
- We activate Allow on other devices and in which devices we want to activate the calls.
Settings you must activate on iPad
- We go to Settings.
- Click on Facetime.
- We activate the Calls from iPhone.
Make a call from iPad
Once these settings are activated, we can receive any call on the iPad, but we can also make one from the Apple tablet. To call from the iPad just go to the application Contacts, select the contact you want to call and click on the phone icon.
The call is made from the iPhone but everything happen on the iPad, by default you will activate the hands-free and you can talk to whoever you want. Another option to call may be to ask Siri. If you want more tricks do not forget to go through our dedicated section.
