and , but with all the announcements, Apple iPhone users have still been waiting patiently, despite being told support was coming.
That is all set to change when Freedom Mobile launches VoLTE and Extended Range LTE for iPhone users on Monday, October 29, 2019.
According to documents seen by iPhone in Canada, a Freedom Mobile carrier update will be released on the 29th, as part of the public release of iOS 12.1,.
Freedom Mobile VoLTE will work on all iPhone models, while Extended Range LTE will work for the same, except for the iPhone SE. To get access to VoLTE, customers with an iPhone 6 or higher must install iOS 12 and the carrier update that comes with the latter. You can then toggle VoLTE on your phone by going to:
Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Enable LTE (Voice & Data)
Another requirement for VoLTE and Extended Range LTE to work for iPhone users is a Profile 6 or 6A SIM card. Those with an older Profile 5 SIM card can get a free swap at any Freedom Mobile location. Profile 6 SIM card users can ensure their card is updated by sending a “SIM” text message to 40001.
