Your iPad rings when you receive a call on your iPhone due to a feature in Apple Continuity called iPhone Cellular Calls. It allows you to make and receive phone calls from your iPad or Mac on the same network as your iPhone. Here are the steps to turn it off.
Step 1: On your iPhone, open Settings, go to Phone, and tap Calls on Other Devices.
Step 2: Locate your iPad under Allow Calls On and toggle it off.
