If you live in an area with little to no cellular coverage, you might want to enable the WiFi Calling feature on your iPhone. This feature allows you to make and receive phone calls using your WiFi network instead of your service provider’s cellular network. The quality of your phone calls may improve after you enable the WiFi Calling feature.

Here’s how to enable the WiFi Calling feature on your iPhone:

  1. From your iPhone’s home screen, tap Settings.

  2. Tap Phone.
