Introducing Vodafone WiFi Calling:
Vodafone has introduced WiFi Calling, compatible with the new Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus and available to those on Pay monthly Red or Red Value Bundle, Red+ or Business Premier pay plans.
With Vodafone WiFi Calling you’ll be able to make and receive calls, even with little or no mobile reception, as long as you have a good WiFi connection. Better yet, there is no additional charge for using the WiFi calling service. Any calls you make will come out of your existing monthly minute’s allowance – as normal calls would via a mobile signal.
All in all, the new feature means you can stay connected in even more areas than before, including the London Underground – just connect to the WiFi service available in over 150 stations – at no extra cost.
Ready to get started?
1) Firstly ensure your iPhone’s software is up to date. You can do so by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.
2) Connect to a WiFi Signal.
3) Switch on WiFi Calling in your iPhone’s settings by heading to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling.
Your iPhone 6S or 6S Plus will now automatically connect to a WiFi network if it cannot find a mobile signal.
How to download iOS 9
1) Firstly, back up your device via iTunes or iCloud. Below are the instructions for each:
Back up via iTunes:
- Make sure your computer has the latest version of iTunes.
- Connect your iOS device to your computer.
- Choose File > Devices > Back up.
If you’re using iTunes 10.7 or earlier, right-click the device and choose Backup Now.
Back up via iCloud:
- Tap Settings > iCloud > Backup. If you’re using iOS 7 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
- Make sure iCloud Backup is on.
- Tap Back Up Now.
2) The easiest way to update your device is to do so wirelessly, or ‘over air’. Plug your device into a power source or ensure you have over 50% battery and tap Settings > General > Software Update.
3) Tap “Download and Install” to download the update.
4) Tap Install when the download completes if you want to complete it now. Tap Later to install the update later. If your device is passcode enabled, it will ask you to enter the passcode before installing the update.
If you can’t update wirelessly, you can update via iTunes.
- Install the latest version of iTunes on your computer.
- Plug in your device to your computer.
- In iTunes, select your device.
- In the Summary pane, click “Check for Update.”
- Click “Download and Update.”
- Make sure your device has enough space for the new operating system, you can check this by going to Settings > General > Usage to see how much space your content uses. If you’re running low on room, you can use iTunes to create space or remove content from your device.

Use Apple’s Health app to set up an emergency Medical ID
We highly recommend the “Medical ID” feature of the Apple Health app for anyone with medical issues or interested in setting up a contact for emergencies.
To access the feature:
1. Launch the Health app from your home screen
2. Tap the Medical ID Menu in the bottom right
3. Choose “Create Medical ID”
From here you can add a custom picture and name, date of birth, list of medical conditions, notes, allergies, reactions, medications, blood type, height and weight, and whether or not you are an organ donor (dependent on how much information you would like to, or feel is necessary, to include). You can also create an emergency contact with name, telephone number and relationship. Once created, you can make changes at any time by going back into the Health app.
If you have locked your iPhone with a passcode, we recommend you consider enabling the “Show When Locked” function, to provide first responders with access to your Medical ID. Enabling this feature allows your Medical ID to be viewed by swiping the lock screen, tapping “Emergency” and then viewing the information.
