Good News Apple Lovers, Wi-Fi Calling Available in iOS 9

Great news Apple users, the company has released a new beta version of its iOS 9 mobile operating system to developers, and you guessed it — it includes support for Wi-Fi calling for AT&T and Sprint. 

A number of cellular carriers are interested in allowing subscribers to make calls via Wi-Fi because it takes some pressure off already-overworked data networks and subscribers, and it costs less while increasing call reliability.

Apple has built this option into its mobile OS and it has also added a cool little feature called “Wi-Fi Assist” that prevents iPhones from connecting to poor-performing Wi-Fi networks.

The feature might prevent a phone from switching a call from cellular to Wi-fi if the Wi-Fi signal does not exceed a certain strength threshold.
