How to Transfer an Apple Watch Call to your iPhone
The Apple Watch is a device packed with convenience. That includes being able to answer a call from your watch. Imagine not even having to grab your phone from your pocket or your watch. That’s what you can do with your Apple Watch.
While convenient, that may grow old if it’s a lengthy call. It sounds OK for a short call, but what about that relative or friend who wants to talk and talk and talk? Luckily you can transfer your call from your Apple Watch to your iPhone.
How to Transfer an Apple Watch Call to your iPhone:
Transfer a call:
You can choose to answer a call by pressing the green button when you hear your Apple Watch ring. If you don’t want to answer it, you can hit the red button. Not as obvious is another option. You can use the digital crown to transfer it to your iPhone. The digital crown lets you scroll down to the option “Answer on iPhone.”
Once you choose that option, your caller will be on hold until you answer the call on your iPhone. That gives you time to transfer it.
Yes, you can also transfer calls that you’ve already answered using your watch.
If your phone is unlocked, all you have to do is tap on the green bar that says “Touch to return call” on the top of your phone screen.
If your phone is locked, tap on the phone icon that you’ll find on the bottom-left corner of your phone screen.
That’s all there is to transferring a call from your Apple Watch to your iPhone.
This is especially handy if you want the call to be private. Remember that you are answering the call on a speakerphone and people will hear the other person on the line as well as yourself.
Another option: Bluetooth headset:
You don’t have to transfer the call for privacy. Another option is to use a pair of Bluetooth headphones with a microphone
You can connect Bluetooth devices to your Apple Watch. This is how you do so.
Step 1: Use the instructions that came with your headphones to pair it with the Apple Watch.
Step 2: Tap Settings>Bluetooth on your Apple Watch and it will search for Bluetooth accessories.
Step 3: Tap your headphones in the list of accessories.
Step 4: Enter a password or PIN if prompted.
If you have Apple’s AirPods, you can also use them. Your Apple Watch must have watchOS3 or later.
Once you pair your AirPods with your iPhone, they’re automatically paired with your Apple Watch. When you receive an incoming call, you will see AirPod icons on your Apple Watch screen instead of the usual call button.
Whichever option you choose depends on your own preference. Either way the Apple Watch makes tasks like even answering and making a call more convenient. Keep your iPhone in your pocket and exclusively use your watch on the go or mix it up. The choice is up to you.
