As they say, there is your home where your phone automatically connects to Wi-Fi network. However, sometimes we want to connect to our friends’ Wi-Fi networks when we are visiting them. Even those short ones. Unfortunately, passwords are often long and not many of us remember them, and typing is still uncomfortable. In addition, Apple does not support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), so the entire password must be entered manually.

The nasty will say that Apple finally adapts to Android, because there has long been able to log on to the Wi-Fi network with a single push. However, many people think that WPS is a little unsafe solution. Concerns arise about lack of any verification of the connected device. When we press the WPS button on our router, practically every device can connect to our Wi-Fi network for a few seconds. It is unlikely that someone will break into our Wi-Fi network this way, but it is possible. On the other hand, the solution proposed by Apple is more comfortable and safer.

In iOS 11, you will just select a Wi-Fi network and get to another device.

Of course, this second device must be unlocked and connected to the same Wi-Fi hotspot. This functionality is supported by any Apple device, including iPhone, iPad, and computers with macOS High Sierra. All magic will not take place automatically. Before providing a Wi-Fi password, a message will appear with the name of the device which request access to our network. The password will only be passed after you approve this. Therefore, this solution is both comfortable and safe.
