Newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support Voice over LTE (VoLTE) allowing users to make voice calls and use LTE data simultaneously. It means that with VoLTE enabled on iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6, you can make voice calls while browsing the web over 4G LTE connection.
VoLTE allows you to make wideband high quality more “naturally sounding” calls. Here’s what Apple has to say about the VoLTE feature in iPhone 6 and the Plus:
iPhone 6 also supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE) — wideband high-quality calls that make your conversations sound as crisp and clear as if you were face to face. And with simultaneous voice and LTE data, you can keep browsing while you’re talking.
The VoLTE feature in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is not enabled by default and your carrier must also support VoLTE. If you’re luck to be a subscriber of a carrier offering VoLTE and have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, here’s how to enable VoLTE on iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6…
Enable VoLTE on iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6
- Go to Settings app.
- Then tap on Cellular.
- tap on Enable 4G or LTE.
- and then tap on Voice & Data to select it.
That’s it. You have successfully enabled VoLTE on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Now if your carrier supports VoLTE, you must be able to browse the web and make HD voice calls simultaneously.
Now to test if you’re getting 4G LTE, download and install Speedtest.net application from the app store [iTunes link], make a call from your iPhone 6/plus, and test the data speed using speedtest.net app. Do it before and after enabling the VoLTE feature.
Let us know if VoLTE is working for you and how much fast is your connection during a voice call.
