On iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (and newer), Wi-Fi calling is a built-in option on iOS 8 and newer. The caveat is that your carrier must support it. Here in the US, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T currently support it, and Verizon will likely soon follow. This is a great feature if your home or place of work has limited or spotty cellular coverage. Instead of only relying on the cellular network for phone calls, your iPhone can use a Wi-Fi connection to place and receive calls.

In the review, Stephen explains that he bought it to house an iPad Pro and a few other things, but this bag can be used in a lot of different ways due to its flexibility and lack of structure.
