What Is This Upgraded WiFi Calling?

In short: iOS 10.3 brings an upgraded version of WiFi Calling which allows iPhone users to make and receive WiFi calls on all their other iCloud-connected devices whether that is an iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch or Mac. The big differentiator between what Verizon customers had before and what they will have with iOS 10.3 is WiFi Calling on these devices still works even if your iPhone is on a different WiFi network or switched off - nothing needs to be routed through your iPhone as before.

This can come in very useful if, for example, your iPhone is out of battery.
