Sharing your Wi-Fi password between two iPhones can be a convenient and quick way to connect to the internet. Whether you’re helping out a friend or simply want to connect another iPhone to your network, this tutorial will guide you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Ensure Both iPhones Are Running iOS 11 or Later
Before attempting to share your Wi-Fi password, make sure that both iPhones are running iOS 11 or a later version of the operating system. This feature is only available on devices that support iOS 11 and later.
Step 2: Connect the First iPhone to Wi-Fi
To begin, ensure that the first iPhone is connected to the Wi-Fi network you want to share. This will allow it to generate a QR code containing the necessary information for the second iPhone to join.
Step 3: Unlock the Second iPhone
Unlock the second iPhone so that you can access its settings. Make sure it is within range of the first iPhone’s Wi-Fi signal so that it can detect and join the network.
Step 4: Open Settings on the Second iPhone
On the second iPhone, locate and tap on the Settings app icon on your home screen. It resembles a gear wheel and is usually found on one of your device’s home screens or in a folder named “Utilities.”
Step 5: Tap Wi-Fi
In the Settings menu, locate and tap on Wi-Fi. This will display a list of available Wi-Fi networks in your vicinity.
Step 6: Locate Your Network Name
In the list of available networks, find and tap on your network’s name. This will prompt a password input field to appear.
Step 7: Unlock the First iPhone
Unlock the first iPhone that is connected to the Wi-Fi network. This will allow it to broadcast the QR code containing the necessary connection information.
Step 8: Hold the First iPhone Near the Second iPhone
Hold the first iPhone near the second iPhone so that they are close together. This will ensure a successful transfer of information between the two devices.
Step 9: Wait for a Prompt on the Second iPhone
After a few moments, you should see a prompt on the second iPhone asking if you want to join the Wi-Fi network. The prompt should include your network’s name and an option to join.
Step 10: Tap Join
Tap on Join to connect your second iPhone to the Wi-Fi network. The first iPhone will automatically share its Wi-Fi password, allowing effortless connection without having to manually enter it.
You have now successfully shared your Wi-Fi password from one iPhone to another! Both devices should now be connected to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to browse and enjoy all that it has to offer.
- The second iPhone must be running iOS 11 or later for this feature to work.
