If I ever before comply with Cult of Mac’s Rob LeFebvre face to face, I’m going to purchase him a draft beer (or coffee). Why? He had a little “the best ways to” post on the site today that addressed a question one of my close friends had asked the other day, so now I don’t need to do any sort of research!

LeFebvre addressed the inquiry that a great deal of individuals have been asking because the arrival of iOS 10.8 and OS X Yosemite– “Just how do I keep my Mac and iPad from ‘ringing’ each time a telephone call comes in on my iPhone?”

As you would certainly anticipate, the solution depends on FaceTime choices on the Mac, and in Settings on the iPad. Initially, look at the photo at the leading of this post. FaceTime settings are accessed by introducing FaceTime, then choosing Preferences from the FaceTime food selection (or pushing Command-Comma). In the inclinations panel that shows up, uncheck the iPhone Cellular Phone calls checkbox. Leave FaceTime and you’ll never be troubled with the noise of your Mac “buzzing” once more.
