Every time you connect to a new network, your iPhone stores or saves that network to its designated wireless network directory. In iOS 16, this directory is labeled as “Known Networks.” Once the network is saved, you won’t have to go over the same procedure like entering the network password, the next time you connect to it.
Should you wish to access and manage this information on your new iPhone, just refer to these subsequent instructions.
- Open the iOS Settings app to begin.
To do this, find the Gear/Settings icon from the Home screen or Apps library then tap on it to launch the app.
- In the Settings menu, tap Wi-Fi. The iOS Wi-Fi settings menu opens next.
Here, you will see the current network your device is connected to (if you're on Wi-Fi) and beneath it are other available networks that are active or within range.
- To continue, tap Edit on the top-right corner of the Wi-Fi screen.
Another window opens with the list of all saved or known networks.
- To view more details about each network in the list, tap the information (i) icon next to the network name.
On the next screen, you will see all important details about the selected network.
Among the available network options you can edit are auto-join, low data mode, limit IP address tracking, configure IP and more.
- Tap Forget This Network if you wish to remove the selected network from the known networks directory.
If prompted, tap Forget to confirm action.
- Alternatively, you can tap the Minus (-) sign before the network name then tap Delete right next to the information (i) icon.
The selected network will be deleted and your device will no longer join this Wi-Fi network unless you add it back.
- Once you're done editing or deleting any of the saved networks, tap Done on the top-right corner.
Doing so will exit the Wi-Fi menu then take you back to the previous menu.
- Apple iPhone 14
The next time you need to delete or edit a saved network on your iPhone, just repeat the same steps to access and manage other known networks saved on your iPhone 14.
Other options from the Wi-Fi settings menu that you can manage include Ask to Join Networks and Auto-Join Hotspot.
If you want your iPhone to automatically join known networks when available. You will also be notified of any other available networks if no known networks are available.
If you want your iPhone to automatically discover nearby personal hotspots in the absence of Wi-Fi network, you can enable and set the Auto-Join Hotspot option to Automatic.
And that’s it!
