Over time, Apple has added more features to phone calls. Now and thanks to the telephone operators, the iPhone can also make calls through your home Wi-Fi. Let’s see how we can activate Wi-Fi calling on iPhone . Of course, first we must make sure that our operator supports this function.
Check the list of operators that support Wi-Fi calls
FaceTime has long had the ability to make audio calls. These take place through a Wi-Fi or cellular network , the latter depending on whether the operator supports it. In that case, calls via FaceTime audio do not count towards our monthly bill.
Calling over the Wi-Fi network is a technology that depends on the operators. Recently it has been deployed to several companies around the world , reaching Spain. In our country, these are the ones that support Wi-Fi calls on the iPhone:
The case of O2 is not specified on the Apple website, but as a user I can confirm that it is an option. It is probably because it is a subsidiary of Movistar . The next step is to confirm that you have the latest carrier settings available:
- Go to Settings> General> Information.
In case there are new settings, iOS will ask you if you want to update them. Since Wi-Fi calling on iPhone is relatively recent , you may have to go through this process before using it.
Activate Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone
Now that we have everything we need to activate Wi-Fi calling on the iPhone , let’s see how the process is. We must follow these steps:
- Open Settings and go to Phone.
- Find and enter the Wi-Fi Calling section.
- There you will see a button, activate it to turn on this function.
- A notice will appear about the collection and use of location data. Accept it to use Wi-Fi calling.
That’s it. From now on, your calls will use the known Wi-Fi network that the iPhone is connected to. If this is of poor quality or you move away from the access point, your calls will probably be impacted.
