This short article explains how you can disable the iPhone Cellular Calls feature so that your Mac will not ring and you will not be getting calls on your Mac when you receive calls.
This feature is enabled by default. If you find this feature annoying (because your Mac will ring every time when your iPhone rings), then this article is for you.
This is part of the Continuity feature. And one feature of it is called “iPhone Cellular Calls”. This will let you make and receive phone calls from your Mac, as long as your iPhone and your Mar are on the same Wi-Fi network and are signed into the same iCloud account and FaceTime. This calls will use your iPhone’s cellular account and service. This will use your cellular minutes.
