T-Mobile Says It Will Support Wi-Fi Calling for iPhones Running iOS 8 [iOS Blog]

Earlier today at its Worldwide Developer Conference keynote address, Apple displayed a slide from its presentation listing many under-the-radar features and improvements the company has made to iOS 8. One of them was Wi-Fi calling, which allows users to make regular phone calls over Wi-Fi rather than a cellular network.


Soon after the event, T-Mobile took to its corporate blog to announce that it would support Wi-Fi calling on its network.

One of the best things about T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling is that it’s so simple to use. You don’t need to activate anything or download a special app. Just connect to any available Wi-Fi network, check that Wi-Fi Calling is turned on on your capable smartphone, and make a call (or send a text, email, etc.) as you normally would. That’s it.

Wi-Fi calling allows networks to ease strain on its bandwidth and potentially speed up the network for other things. It also allows users to experience higher quality calls, to preserve both minutes and data and is a smaller drain on battery life during calls.

iOS 8 is available to developers now and launches for the public in the fall.
