    My battery life is not all that great either. Strange suppose to be better. iPhone 8+
    I have an iPhone 7 and did the update Friday afternoon, didn't notice any difference. All of a sudden last night my phone is noticeably snappier! Apps open super fast with no lag at all, it's great! So maybe give it a day to settle in and your battery may be better.

    Exactly! It's usually apps struggling to adapt to the new OS that may cause excess battery discharging. When mine do that, the phone also gets too warm. I swipe out suspect apps, then reboot the phone. That usually stops it.

    Hi I’m having a similar issue. Since the update it keeps disconnecting randomly and I have to turn the phone off and back on for it to come back on. Before the update it would just stay on as soon as I get to the WiFi zone but now it’s giving me connection issues. I’m Noticing issues too since the update

    I’m in Ireland and obviously on a different network and yes I’m noticing the same WiFi calling is giving me issues since the update. It sometimes shows in the status bar and will just drop back to my carriers name with no WiFi call after it. Obviously a bug in 11.3.1

    Well, either a bug, or its working like it's supposed to now. Call your carrier and see how it's supposed to work.

    Something I can think of. If the WiFi connection doesn’t have enough bandwidth to handle phone calls, the phone should step down to mobile.

    Also, from this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203032 , Apple has some troubleshooting on the bottom. The page mentions that WiFi calling doesn’t work on all WiFi networks (without specifying details), and also suggests restarting the phone, to see if that helps, and if that doesn’t work, doing a settings / General / reset / reset network settings as the last step to try to fix a problem like this. (Do know, though, that this forgets all of your network settings, including known WiFi access points and I think Bluetooth devices, so you have to re-enter credentials and maybe re-pair to all of your BT devices.)

    Well, there you go. It'll work when you need it. Mine doesn't usually kick in until I get to 1 bar.

    You said that you are on a different network though. If you are roaming, settings / cellular / wifi calling / prefer wifi while roaming should give preference to WiFi for calling (to avoid roaming fees.)

    You don't have this option? I'm not sure it would give you what you want anyway. Wifi calling is not supposed to be on all the time anyway. There's no benefit for it if your cellular signal is good.

    Not sure I agree with this. I don't get an LTE signal at my house, so Verizon can only carry voice with CDMA. Doing WiFi calling uses the same HD audio as VoLTE on Verizon, so call quality is much, much higher.

    FWIW I don't have that option either. Wonder if that's something they took out with iOS 11

    Im wondering is this only on specific carriers. Im in Ireland and a lot of our technology is behind that of America and we tend to get it years later. we havent even got VOLTE here yet its been rolled out soon. Im guessing this is purely an american feature on certain carriers. My carrier status is showing as Wifi calling in my house

    I doubt that it has to do with being technologically behind at all.
    By allowing WiFi calling while abroad the carrier basically shoots itself in its own legs and feet.
    Roaming costs are still a major income for carriers and it’s only natural they will do everything in their power to keep it that way, especially with the EU already having banned most roaming costs.

    It’s on my phone, iOS 11.3.1. It must be a carrier thing.

    It must be. WiFi calling seems to connect as soon as I enter my house but I have 4 bars of signal so if it’s only meant to be coming on when signal is low about 2 bars why am I seeing it. Not that it matters just more curious
