How to start a call on your iPhone and continue on the Apple Watch and vice versa

Since iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2 were released, it is possible to pass calls from your iPhone to your Mac, iPad or even Apple Watch effortlessly . And vice versa: start them from the Mac, iPad or Apple Watch and transfer them to the iPhone. It does not matter which device you start the chat with, which with the Apple ecosystem, it is possible to make the jump without cutting off the communication.

But it is also not only you can do with normal calls, but it is also possible to transfer calls via FaceTime . Below we explain how to do it step by step.


  •     You need an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 11.2 or later installed.
  •     You will also need an Apple Watch with watchOS 4.2 or later.
  •     For connectivity issues, all devices must be close.

    In all the devices that you are going to use it is necessary that they have activated both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and also Handoff.

That you do not know how to activate Handoff? On your iPhone go to Settings > General > Handoff and slide the toggle to turn it on. To activate it in the Apple Watch you must go to the Watch app on your iPhone and from there General > Handoff .

How to pass calls from the Apple Watch to the iPhone

Imagine that they call you and take the call from your Apple Watch. I insist: it does not matter if it's a standard call or it's an audio from FaceTime . You only have to:

1) Answer the call with your Apple Watch.

2) Take your iPhone and mark the green bar that appears on the right ear of your iPhone X or, in case you have an iPhone 8 or earlier, you will find the green bar in the upper area of ​​the screen .

3) You will access the Phone screen of your iPhone and you will have to dial the iPhone instead of the one you see selected , which in this case would be the Apple Watch.

4) Finally, you will see a message on your Apple Watch indicating that the call has been transferred or "handoff".

And now we will do the reverse way.
How to pass iPhone calls to the Apple Watch

As before, we make a call either traditional or FaceTime. We take it with our iPhone or iPad, but we decided that we want to continue it with our smartwatch . What do we have to do?

1) Answer the call on your iPhone.

2) On your Apple Watch open the phone app .

3) You will see a green bar in the upper area, above the favorites button. Slide up or rotate the Digital Crown to make it look like a hidden button and press it.

4) In a few seconds , the call will be transferred to your Apple Watch.

Remember that to increase or decrease the volume we have the side buttons on the iPhone and The Digital Crown on the Apple Watch. As you can see, it is not very difficult to continue your calls from the Apple Watch or from the iPhone.
