iOS has a built-in feature that lets you quickly share Wi-Fi passwords between devices by bringing them near each other. It uses Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and each user’s Apple ID to securely share the password between devices.
Sharing your Wi-Fi password can be a frustrating endeavor. If you have you have a complicated Wi-Fi password with letters, numbers, and special characters, that can be a real pain for your Aunt Edna coming to visit on Thanksgiving. But as of iOS 11, Wi-Fi sharing between iPhones and iPads is a piece of cake! There are three things you need to check before you can do it, though.
First, make sure both phones have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on. You can check these in Settings > Wi-Fi and Settings > Bluetooth, respectively. Just toggle the slider to the on position.
Secondly, make sure you both have each other’s Apple ID under the “email” section in Contacts—this won’t work otherwise!. As a side note, this method also works if both devices are using the same Apple ID.
Finally, connect one of the devices to the Wi-Fi.
On the disconnected device, go to the Settings > Wi-Fi.
