    Just an observation about wifi calling. I bought an iPhone specifically because it had this feature and use it in area with virtually zero mobile coverage. I found that turning aeroplane mode on significantly extends the battery life, presumably because the phone isn’t beating its little heart out trying to find a signal that isn’t there.
    .....and turn on wi-fi after aeroplane mode presumably?

    You make a good point, (unlocked) iPhones from the 6 onwards will work with any network's wi-fi provision.

    I’ve not found that necessary with my phone or iPad as it doesn’t get turned off, but it might be different with other makes.
