Android Widget - Dial out from my phone always using the RingCentral Number

An Android Widget that allows you to select "use RingCentral for all outgoing calls" could resolve the trouble with not being able to dial out "hands free" - see similar feature in Google Voice (option toggles between 'all calls', 'international calls', and 'select each time'). It works by 'hijacking' the phones native dial-out and would instead process the call through RingCentral, therefore using the RingCentral phone number of choice instead of the device's carrier number. In practice, I would ask google assistant to call someone, and then the dial-out begins, then gets taken over by RingCentral and the person I'm calling sees my RingCentral number.

Does this service work on an iPhone? That's my type of phone. Will it work?

Widgets are pretty unique to Android, so I don't know if it's applicable to iPhones - however, I heard not long ago that you might be able to achieve the same result (dialing someone without opening the app first) by talking to Siri and asking to "call John Smith using RingCentral". I haven't tested that myself since I only have the android, but I heard that is supposed to work.
