How to Answer or Make a Call on Apple Watch

The incoming call on Apple watch surprised Jeb Bush yesterday during the meeting, and the news caused a hot discussion on making and answering calls on Apple watch. So here in the passage, we explained how to answer or make call on it.

 

  1. Answering an incoming call.

If someone calls you while you are wearing your Apple watch (and it’s paired to your iPhone) you’ll be alerted by a subtle vibration as well as an audible ringtone if you haven’t set the device to silent.

Look at your watch and you’ll see who’s calling, along with an answer or decline button. If it’s someone you want to talk to, tap the green answer button. There’s a built-in speaker and microphone, so you’ll be able to chat without getting your iPhone out of your bag or pocket.

Should you wish to take the phone call on your iPhone (don’t forget that everyone else will be able to hear your conversation if you’re speaking through your wrist unless you’re using a Bluetooth headset), you can seamlessly transfer the call from the Apple Watch to your iPhone by scrolling up using the Digital Crown and tapping ‘Answer on iPhone.’

If you are in a busy meeting, for example, you can mute an incoming call simply by covering the Apple Watch with your hand.

 2. Making a call

You can also make a call directly from your Apple Watch.

 

Press the side button to bring up your circle of Friends. You’ll see their initials and thumbnail images, which you can tap to call using the aforementioned microphone and speaker.

Tapping on the call button at the bottom left of the screen beneath the person’s thumbnail will bring up a list of numbers associated with that person, which you can tap to make the phone call.

You can also use Siri to make a call by saying “Hey Siri” and then “Call Mum,” for example.

There is, however, one option that is missing. If your iPhone is in your pocket and you have headphones in, you might think you could tap your watch to answer the call on your phone and speak via the headphones. Sadly, no such feature exists yet.
