Continuity call relay enables me to receive and answer calls I get on my iPhone. So when my iPhone buzzes, I can also listen to ring on my Mac and iPad, which use the same Apple ID I have on my iPhone. But this sometimes creates a disturbance as all my devices are linked to each other and begin to ring when I receive a call. Normally, I keep Mac nearby as I hardly use iPad (somebody please convince my kids to stop using my iPad). In the end, what it all boils down to is that I should unlink my iPhone from Mac and iPad to disable iPhone calls on Mac, iPad and other devices.
If not iPad, I should ensure that I turn off or stop Mac from ringing when iPhone rings. This creates an embarrassing situation especially when I am in my office, where other colleagues get disturbed. Thankfully, there is a simple method every iOS user can follow to stop phone calls from going to iPad and Mac.
