A job listing posted by Apple today hints at a VoLTE being a field Apple is eager to explore. Voice over LTE, or VoLTE for short, is when phone calls are made over the LTE data network, this allows for calls to sound clearer and be of a higher quality.The two job listings, originally spotted by LightReading, ask for people experienced with VoLTE and other related technologies. The position is titled ‘Cellular Systems Protocol Engineer’, and would presumably be a leading figure in the push to bring VoLTE to iPhones. The second job calls for an ‘iOS Wireless Communication Software Engineer’ with experience with VoIP and other voice over technology fields. 

This isn’t the first word of VoLTE coming to the iPhone, as 9to5Mac reported recently that Apple had plans to implement VoLTE support in iOS 8 and upcoming iPhone models.
