Remember call forwarding? You may think it went the way of the answering machine, but it turns out it is a feature on your iPhone. Many people have different iPhones for work or personal use or maybe two of you are going to the same place and bringing multiple iPhones isn’t necessary.
There are many reasons you might need to forward your calls, and it’s easy to enable. Here’s how you do it.
Step 1. In the Settings app, scroll down to select the Phone menu.
Step 2. Open the Call Forwarding menu.
Step 3. Toggle the switch to the On position to enable Call Forwarding.
Step 4. Tap “Forward To” and on the next screen enter the number you want the calls sent to.
Step 5. Tap “Back” in the upper left corner when you are done, and you will return to the previous screen where you will see the number you have forwarded to on the display.
When you are done, just toggle the Call Forwarding switch to the Off position.
That’s all there is to it! Just don’t forget to turn it off when you are done, or you may why no one is calling you anymore.
Certain carriers offer alternate methods for doing this. For example, with Verizon you can turn on Call Forwarding using My Verizon either online or with the app. You can also enable it on your iPhone by dialing *72 and the number you want to forward to, *72-206-555-1111.
You also have the option of forwarding only calls you don’t answer to a different number using *71 and the ten-digit number. If you had an assistant, this could be a very useful option.
Now you don’t have to miss a call. Unless you want to.

I do not have this feature but have iOS 15.5. Seems I should have it with my iPhone.
I don’t see that feature on IPhone 6S
This is a very helpful feature. My husband has a severe hearing loss. He is able to hear his phone through his hearing aid. Now I can forward calls to his cell. Thank you!
