Sprint has announced the arrival of enhanced Wi-Fi Calling for iPhone users who have updated to Apple’s latest iOS 9.1 software. This gives subscribers the ability to make and take calls on other iOS devices, and even their Mac.
After upgrading to iOS 9.1, you’ll begin to see your incoming calls on your iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, and your Mac as they come through on your iPhone. You can then answer them on any one of these devices, which will share the same phone number.
“Customers already enjoy seamlessly responding to texts and email from a variety of great Apple devices,” said David Owens, SVP of Product Development at Sprint. “Now they can bring that flexibility to the primary phone number their friends, family and colleagues know best. This great feature puts the power of device choice in our customers’ hands.”
To start using Wi-Fi Calling on Sprint, you’ll need to ensure all of your iOS devices are updated to iOS 9.1. which Apple rolled out on Wednesday. You’ll also need to update your Apple Watch and Mac to the latest available software, Sprint says.
After upgrading, you’ll also get to enjoy a whole bunch of new emojis, improved Live Photos functionality on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and enhancements to CarPlay, the multitasking UI, and lots more.
