AT&T's iPhone customers gain International Wi-Fi calling feature with iOS 9.3 update
The update to iOS 9.3 which started yesterday, brought some great new features to iPhone users such as Night Shift. This adjusts the color temperature on the screen at night in order to remove the blue colors that are said to cause eye fatigue and insomnia. Another new feature allows you to securely store passwords, PIN codes and anything you write in the Notes app. You can set up the app to be password protected, or require fingerprint verification using Touch ID.

Another new feature that came with the iOS update enables AT&T subscribers sporting a compatible iPhone, to use International Wi-Fi calling. Customers using this feature will be charged the regular price for the call. Texts can also be sent through Wi-Fi calling and count the same as a regular text message. Those using the feature are usually in an area where cell reception is poor. Using Wi-Fi calling allows them to use the Wi-Fi hotspot in place of the cellular pipeline to make calls and send texts.

Wi-Fi calling is available for the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, and can be turned on in the system settings. Last year, the feature became available for domestic calls and AT&T is now expanding it overseas.
