Good news for iPhone users on Sprint today as the Now Network has revealed that those rocking Apple's smartphones will now get free Wi-Fi calling. The third largest carrier in the United States says that an update will be rolling out to the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c during the next week.

Wi-Fi calling is a good solution for those who are in low coverage areas, or even use their phone a lot in places such as basements or built up area. Customers with the last four versions of the iPhone can now maintain a connection as long as Wi-Fi is available.

Of course, the Wi-Fi calling will not count against any data plans or limits in place and on top of that users of the iPhone will even be able to call internationally. Those free international calls will be from the United States to more than 200 nations around the world.

The feature needs iOS 8.3 on your iPhone, the latest build of Apple's mobile operating system was launched today, so you will need to upgrade to that before taking the Sprint update. The company has not said whether the feature will be rolling out to Android and Windows Phone smartphones.
