News Brief

While Apple highlighted a number of new features coming to iOS 8 at WWDC this morning, there were many exciting additions that weren’t discussed onstage, including support for Wi-Fi calling. This added capability will allow you to make standard voice calls over a Wi-Fi network, and T-Mobile has now confirmed that it will support the feature when the update is released this fall. According to the carrier, there’s no activation required or need for a separate app. You simply need to make sure Wi-Fi calling is enabled on the phone. Sprint also offers a Wi-Fi calling service, but the carrier has not made any announcements about its plans yet.


When you say "standard" voice calls, does that rule out free or low cost overseas calls,e.g. to and from Europe?
