Free Mobile will offer Wi-Fi calling (VoWiFi) on iPhone in the 3rd quarter of 2022

Free Mobile recently enabled Wi-Fi calling (VoWiFi) on several smartphones, but iPhones will have to wait until the third quarter of 2022 to take advantage of it. The operator announces it in a list.

Waiting for Wi-Fi calls on iPhone with Free Mobile

Thus, all iPhones (from the iPhone 7) will be able to take advantage of Wi-Fi calls (VoWiFi) from the third quarter of 2022 at Free Mobile, but the operator does not give a precise date. We can also be surprised at such a delay when we know that Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom have been offering the same functionality for years now.

On Twitter, the Free account dedicated to the network ensures that “Apple decides”. Another Internet user then asked if it was not possible to have an operator update rather than an iOS update to have the novelty. “Ditto, it’s Apple who decides”says Free.

By the way, what is this feature? Thanks to VoWiFi, the call goes through the Wi-Fi network instead of going directly through the operator’s 2G/3G/4G/5G antenna. It is a transparent operation for the customer, he does not need to use a specific application and his telephone number is always the same. This system is especially interesting for people who pick up poorly indoors, for example in houses.
