iOS 10.3 Brings WiFi Calling For Verozon iPhone Users

According to reports it will be possible to enable Verizon WiFi Calling on iOS 10.3 iPhone with this public software release. Apple added support for Wi-Fi Calling in iOS way back with iOS 8 in the year 2014. Wi-Fi calling is carrier-driven, and depends on a technology called SIP / IMS (IP Multimedia Subset). This technology forces your iOS 10 iPhone to make and receive phone calls using a regular Wi-Fi network. And almost every user with poor or inconsistent cellular reception knows how to enable WiFi Calling.

What is more such U.S. wireless carriers as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile have supported Wi-Fi Calling since iOS 8, with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile also supporting Wi-Fi Calling on other iCloud-connected devices like iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch and Mac. 


Apple has just seeded fist beta for the next software update iOS 10.3, right after it has released iOS 10.2.1. This was a minor update and didn't brought any significant change or enhancements to the table. The update’s release notes indicated that it included bug fixes and improved the security of iOS devices.

As per report iOS 10.3 beta 1 seed supports Integrated Calling on Verizon. So with this handy feature, compatible iCloud-signed devices can make and receive calls using your carrier’s account even when your iPhone isn’t nearby. Verizon customers should be able to take advantage of this useful feature when Apple will release iOS 10.3 to public.

With Verizon’s Integrated Calling feature, users will be able to use iCloud to make calls over Wi-Fi, as long as that device is using the same Apple ID as their iPhone. As the result, the iPhone doesn’t even have to be on to make or receive those calls, nor does it have to be on the same Wi-Fi connection. 

So to Verizon WiFi Calling on iOS 10.3 iPhone you will need any iPad or iPod touch model running iOS 9 or later, any Mac model manufactured in 2012 onward with OS X El Capitan or later or Apple Watch with watchOS 2 or later.
