Wow, I love this feature. I’m sitting on the couch with my iPad, and my phone, left in my office up a lot of stairs starts ringing.

Why would you want to turn this off? Sigh.

I’m with you there. Love this feature now. I even answer calls on my Apple Watch. It’s very useful. You can also transfer calls between devices so you can answer on one and switch to another
