Make Phone Calls on Mac


When trying to use FaceTime on iMac to make phone calls through iPhone, there is an issue to connect the iPhone with the Mac. Even though these 2 devices are on the same WiFi network. There’s an error message on the iPhone “Cannot turn on calls on other devices”. When clicking “Calls on Other Devices” under “Settings -> phone” as suggested by Apple’s support forum, it doesn’t work to connect the iPhone with the Mac.


In the iPhone, go to Settings, and click “facetime”, select something like … AppleID… and sign in.


Though the AppleID is signed in probably in my new iPhone, some Apps have to be signed in, I guess, before some of its features are to be enabled.
