How to Setup Wi-Fi on an iPhoneby Marshal M. RosenthalUpdated September 28, 2017
The Apple iPhone can use Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet in much the same way that a computer does. Choosing a WI-FI network enables the iPhone to go online. The procedure is done through the iPhone using a series of commands. The name of the Wi-Fi home network will be needed, as will the password that is used to protect it from being accessed from unauthorized people.
Click the “Sleep/Wake” button at the upper-right corner of the iPhone to light up the LCD screen. Swipe the slider on the LCD screen to the right.
Tap the “Settings” icon. Tap the “Wi-Fi” tab on the screen that appears to go to a Wi-Fi screen. Tap the “On” button next to “Wi-Fi” to turn the Wi-Fi on. Tap the “Join” button at the bottom of the screen.
Select your Wi-Fi home network from the list of choices presented in the column below “Wi-Fi” by tapping once on it.
Enter the security password in the “Password” text field of the screen that appears using the onscreen keyboard. Press the “Join” button at the bottom of the onscreen keyboard.
Press the “Home” button at the bottom of the iPhone to return to the initial app screen.
