iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of dropping calls or experiencing poor network coverage indoors? Well, worry no more!

With the latest iPhones, you can enable Wi-Fi calling to make and receive calls over a Wi-Fi connection. In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to enable Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone.

Step 1: Check for compatibility

Before proceeding, ensure that your iPhone and carrier support Wi-Fi calling. Most major carriers now offer this feature, but it’s always best to double-check. You can visit your carrier’s website or contact their customer support for more information.

Step 2: Update your iPhone

It’s crucial to keep your iPhone up to date with the latest software version. Software updates often include bug fixes and improvements that can enhance the performance of Wi-Fi calling. To update your iPhone:

  1. Connect your iPhone to a stable Wi-Fi network.
  2. Go to the “Settings” app on your home screen.
  3. Select “General”.
  4. Tap on “Software Update”.
  5. If an update is available, “Download and Install”.

Step 3: Enable Wi-Fi Calling

To enable Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone:

  1. Navigate to the “Settings” app.
  2. Select “Phone”.
  3. Tap on “Wi-Fi Calling”.
  4. Toggle the switch to enable Wi-Fi calling.
  5. Read and accept any terms and conditions if prompted.

Note: The steps may vary slightly depending on your iPhone model and iOS version. However, the overall process remains similar.

Step 4: Set Preferred Wi-Fi Network

If you have multiple Wi-Fi networks available, you can set a preferred network for Wi-Fi calling. This ensures that your iPhone automatically connects to that network when making calls. To set a preferred Wi-Fi network:

  1. Navigate to the “Settings” app.
  2. Select “Prefer Wi-Fi While Roaming”.
  3. Select your preferred network from the list of available networks.

Step 5: Make a Test Call

To ensure that Wi-Fi calling is working correctly, make a test call. Dial any phone number as you normally would, and if everything is set up correctly, your call should go through over the Wi-Fi network. You can also check the status bar on your iPhone during the call to verify that it says “Wi-Fi Call” or something similar.

In Conclusion

Congratulations! You have successfully enabled Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone.

Now you can enjoy uninterrupted calls even in areas with weak cellular coverage. Remember to keep your iPhone software up to date and check for carrier compatibility if you experience any issues.
