    I've just upgraded to the iPhone 7 and I've noticed that I no longer get notifications on my MBP with incoming calls. Messages still come in, and I can still make facetime calls on the MBP but I get no incoming call notification, any idea how to turn this on? I've tried going into facetime preferences and unchecking/checking the calls from iphone box, but this didn't work. I also noticed that the call history in facetime on the Mac has not updated with the latest calls either.

    Any help appreciated.

    Just to add a bit more info, I went into the phone settings on the iPhone and noticed a setting to "allow calls on other devices" but it won't let me turn it on as it says all facetime and icloud must be signed in to the same apple ID to enable calls on other devices, which I was. However, I signed out of facetime and signed back in again and it's now all working. Bizarre.

    Maybe this will help someone else if they have this issue.

    That's standard advice for those kinds of issues...sign out and then sign back in.
