Ignore a network on iOS

By Patrick Stafford
Wednesday, 21 March 2012

If you take your phone or iPad into work every day, or a place where there are a lot of WiFi networks, then you may find that you inadvertently join one you’re not meant to.

 

This can be annoying, especially if you want to download data in the background. There’s a way to ensure you can “forget” these networks and just join the one you want.

 

Head to the Wi-Fi section of iOS, then press on the “arrow” button on the network you want to ignore. At the top of the screen, there should be a button to “forget this network”. Do so, and that network won’t be joined next time you turn on WiFi.

Patrick, let me start with letting you know I love your Tech Tricks, however I'm not sure these instructions are correct for iOS 5.1

After pressing the "arrow" button on the network, there is no "forget this network" option available. Please review and re-post.
