Enabling Jio VoLTE on Apple iPhone

Reliance Jio started the LTE and data revolution in India which made the regular cellular calling almost free. One of the features of Jio LTE is VoLTE which stands for Voice over LTE (LTE = Long Term Evolution) and basically means that you are actually calling using data network and not cellular (2G, 3G, 4G, etc.). The advantage is better and natural sound quality and drop free connection. However to take this advantage both the caller and callee should have VoLTE enabled phones & service. The data used by calling over VoLTE isn’t charged currently by Jio and it still remains free.

Most of the popular phones now a days supports VoLTE calling. And what could be better than to use it on the top notch hardware, the Apple iPhone. It is much easier to enable VoLTE on an iPhone. Follow these steps,
