“As we reported last week, the latest beta version of iOS 9 includes support for Wi-Fi Calling on AT&T for the first time,” Mike Beasley reports for 9to5Mac.
“This feature, which is exclusive to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, allows users to place cellular calls over a Wi-Fi network in situations where they have a poor cell signal,” Beasley reports. “At the time of the beta’s release, AT&T had not yet flipped the switch to enable the feature on their end, but 9to5Mac readers report that they are now seeing Wi-Fi calling go live on their devices.”
“Once you’ve agreed to the terms, you’ll be told whether the feature is available in your area,” Beasley reports. “If it is, you should start seeing it work over the next few minutes. If not, you’ll need to wait until AT&T enables it for your market.”
