The iPad is configured to ring and is able to accept inbound iPhone calls when both devices are connected to the same wifi network. Devices are updated to IOS 12.4.1
For some reason, when I pickup the call on the iPhone the iPad will not stop ringing: in fact it plays a ringtone that seems to be an accelerated version of the nominal ringtone. I am forced to shutdown the iPad to stop the ringing. The inconvenience is enough to seek a solution.
What can be done to correct the issue? The iPad should stop ringing when the iPhone answers the call.
