In today's fast-paced world, staying connected while traveling is essential. Whether it's for business or personal reasons, having the ability to make phone calls from your iPad can be a game-changer. Fortunately, with a few simple steps, you can transform your iPad into a powerful communication device. 

How To Allow Phone Calls on an iPad

With iPhone's Cellular Calls and Wi-Fi Calling features, you can make and receive calls from your iPad, as long as it is on the same network as your iPhone. 

Before you begin:

  • Each device must be signed into iCloud with the same Apple ID.
  • Each device must be signed into FaceTime with the same Apple ID.
  • Each device must have Wi-Fi turned on.
  • Each device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Once you've met the requirements above, you can follow these steps to set up the Wi-Fi Calling feature.

On your iPhone:

  • Go to Settings Cellular.
  • Select your SIM or eSIM.
  • Tap Calls on Other Devices and turn on "Allow Calls on Other Devices." This allows your iPad to make and receive calls when it's nearby your iPhone and connected to Wi-Fi.
  • OR tap Wi-Fi Calling, turn on "Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone" and turn on "Add Wi-Fi Calling For Other Devices." This allows your iPad to make and receive calls even when your iPhone isn't nearby.

On your iPad:

  • Go to Settings FaceTime.
  • Turn on "FaceTime and Calls from iPhone."
  • If you're asked, turn on "Wi-Fi Calling."
