Recently, Apple’s IOS version of WeChat quietly tested a feature called CallKit. With this function, users can directly answer WeChat voice calls without unlocking the phone, which is very convenient.

What is the CallKit function?

There are currently two voice call modes. One is the voice call service provided by major operators, which is our telephone function. The other is voice calls provided by third-party apps represented by WeChat and QQ. Its biggest advantage is that it uses data traffic and does not need to be billed separately according to the duration of the call.
