Connect to Wi-Fi on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Learn how to connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, including open, secure, and hidden networks.

Connect to Wi-Fi networks

  1. Tap Settings > Wi-Fi, and make sure Wi-Fi is turned on. Your device will search for available Wi-Fi networks.
  2. Tap the name of the Wi-Fi network you'd like to join.

After you've joined the network, you should see  next to the network, and  in the upper-left side of your display. 

Connect to secure Wi-Fi networks

  1. Tap Settings > Wi-Fi, and make sure Wi-Fi is turned on. Then, tap the name of the Wi-Fi network you'd like to join. Password-protected networks have   by their names.
  2. When asked, enter the password and tap Join. If tapping Join has no effect, the password you entered is too short. 

Connect to hidden Wi-Fi networks

Since hidden networks won't appear in your device's list of available networks, you'll need to know the exact name of the network you're trying to join.

  1. Tap Settings > Wi-Fi, and make sure Wi-Fi is turned on. Tap Other.
  2. Enter the exact name of the network, then tap Security.
  3. Pick the security type. Not all hidden networks are secure. Check with the network administrator if necessary.
  4. At the top of the screen, tap Other Network to return to the previous screen.
  5. Enter the network password in the Password field, then tap Join.

After you've joined the network, you should see  next to the network, and  in the upper-left side of your display.
