How to Dial Internationally on iPhone

Traveling abroad can be an exciting experience, but it often comes with the need to make international calls. If you are an iPhone user, you’re in luck!

The iPhone makes it simple to dial internationally, and this tutorial will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To begin, locate and open the “Phone” app on your iPhone. It is typically found on your home screen or in your app drawer.

Once opened, you will see the keypad interface.

Step 2: Enter the Plus Sign (+)

When dialing internationally on an iPhone, you need to include the country code. The easiest way to do this is by entering a plus sign (+) before the country code.

The plus sign is a shorthand way of entering the international access code required for each country.


+1 for United States
+44 for United Kingdom
+61 for Australia

Step 3: Enter the Country Code

After entering the plus sign (+), input the country code of the destination you wish to call. Country codes are unique numerical identifiers assigned to each country.

You can easily find a list of country codes online or refer to our list at the end of this tutorial.


If calling Australia, enter +61

Step 4: Enter the Area Code (If Applicable)

In some cases, you may need to enter an area code before dialing the local phone number. Area codes are typically used within large countries to specify a particular region or city.

If you are unsure whether an area code is required, a quick internet search should provide you with the necessary information.

Step 5: Enter the Local Phone Number

Finally, enter the local phone number of the person or business you wish to call. Ensure that you have included all necessary digits and double-check for any typos before proceeding.

Step 6: Make the Call!

Once you have entered the complete international phone number, simply tap on the green “Call” button to initiate the call. Your iPhone will then connect your call through your cellular network or Wi-Fi if available.

Now that you know how to dial internationally on your iPhone, you can confidently stay connected with friends, family, and colleagues around the world. So go ahead and make those international calls without any hassle!
