Verizon recently announced on their site that they will begin supporting iOS users with Wi-Fi Calling early next year. Wi-Fi Calling allows phone calls to be place over Wi-Fi connections in areas with bad cellular service.

Recently, Verizon announced on its main site that Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users will gain Wi-Fi Calling support as a software update on Monday, while iOS users will gain the feature sometime early next year. You can read the note below…

“Wi-Fi Calling will initially be available on the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge and will be rolled out as a software update in phases. Additional Android and iOS devices will receive Wi-Fi Calling capabilities via future software updates expected early next year.”

Sprint and T-Mobile have sported the feature for some time, and AT&T launched their support in early October. With that said, AT&T claimed that Sprint and T-Mobile have been offering their customers the feature illegally, due to the FCC requirements for supporting TTY feature for users who have a hard time hearing or for deaf users.

In addition, AT&T received its waiver from the FCC, while Verizon followed with its own request, with the FCC approving it several weeks ago. Moreover, for those that want to use Wi-Fi Calling on their iOS device should see support early 2016.
