Make calls over Wi-Fi

If your cellular carrier offers Wi-Fi calling, you can use your Apple Watch to make and receive calls over Wi-Fi instead of the cellular network—even when your paired iPhone isn’t with you or is turned off. Your Apple Watch just has to be within range of a Wi-Fi network that your iPhone has connected to in the past.

To see if your carrier offers Wi-Fi calling, see the Apple Support article Make a call with Wi-Fi calling, and enable Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone.

  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling, then turn on both Wi-Fi Calling on This iPhone and Add Wi-Fi Calling For Other Devices.
  2. Open the Phone app on your Apple Watch.
  3. Choose a contact, then tap
  4. Select the phone number or FaceTime address you want to call.

Note: You can make emergency calls over Wi-Fi, but when possible, use your iPhone over a cellular connection instead—your location information is more accurate. Make sure your emergency address is up to date—on your iPhone, go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling, then tap Update Emergency Address. If emergency services can’t locate you, they go to your emergency address.

See call info on Apple Watch

While you’re talking on your iPhone, you can view call information on your Apple Watch in the Phone app You can also end the call from your Apple Watch (for example, if you’re using earphones or a headset).
