During Apple’s event we briefly saw Starhub logo being flashed as one of Apple’s partners in VoLTE (Voice over LTE) presentation slide on the screen. VoLTE isn’t new and Starhub and SingTel has already been testing and offering high quality voice calling over the LTE networks since 2013 but the more interesting point presented during Apple’s event is that iPhone 6 is capable of switching between WiFi and VoLTE automatically, say when you make a call at home or office and moving outdoors, without disrupting the call.

This technology hints the death of GSM and IDD international calls eventually in the future, and telcos could be scrambling to find a way to start charging data voice calls.
