Apple rolled out its third iOS 9.3 beta earlier this week — and followed it up with a public beta on Wednesday — and although it is almost identical to the second beta, there is one nice new addition. Those on Verizon can now enjoy Wi-Fi Calling.
Wi-Fi Calling has been slowly making its way to iPhone owners on all major carrier in the U.S., starting with T-Mobile in June 2014, AT&T in October 2015, and then Sprint a little while later. Now the feature is finally available to those on Verizon.
Wi-Fi Calling, as its name suggests, lets you make and receive calls over a Wi-Fi network when your cellular signal is poor or nonexistent. What’s more, your iPhone will intelligently switch between both networks to give you the best connection without dropping your call.
- Open the Settings app, then tap Phone
- Tap Wi-Fi Calling
- Toggle the Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone option
- Tap Enable when prompted
If you’re not using iOS 9.3 beta 3 yet, you’ll get Wi-Fi Calling on Verizon when the update makes its public debut in the coming weeks.
