Receive/Make Phone Calls on iPad and Mac
Imagine that you leave your iPhone in the drawing room charging while you are enjoying iPad or Mac on your bed. And at this moment, your iPhone receives a call but you may miss it because of the long distance. iOS can solve this dilemma by enabling you to receive calls on iPhone from the Mac or iPad as long as your iPhone and your Mac, iPad are on the same Wi-Fi network. Similarly, you can of course make calls as well.

Older iOS allows users to check the storage space of their iDevice, but the newest iOS 8 is said to calculate and check battery usage of each App. This feature enables you to check which App consumes battery most and decide which App to be closed.
Actually, Wi-Fi calling is a feature supported by major carriers like T-Mobile. This feature allows you to access voice and messaging features over Wi-Fi. Apple adds this feature to iOS and paves the way improved calls.
