Connect iPhone to Wi-Fi network from Control Center

In this detailed and easy-to-follow step-by-step guide we will show all possible methods to connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network at your home or office. As you might know, in iOS 13 Apple added a new way to connect an iPhone to a wireless network using the Control Center. So now it is much faster and more convenient.

Connect iPhone 11, X, XS, 8, 7, SE to a Wi-Fi Network from Control Center

I’d like to emphasize once again: your device should run iOS 13 / iPadOS 13 or later version to be able to connect to a wireless hotspot from Control Center.

Follow the steps:

  1. Open Control Center.
    On iPhone 11, XS and X you need to swipe down from the upper right corner of the screen. On iPhone 8, 7, 6 and earlier models – swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
  2. Turn on Wi-Fi (if it is off) by tapping on its toggle:Wi-Fi Toggle iPhone Control Center
  3. Long-tap on the whole section where Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and AirDrop toggles are located: Long tap on Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and AirDrop section
  4. While the Wi-Fi toggle is blue long-tap on it again:Long-tap on Wi-Fi toggle in Control Center iPhone iOS 13

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone (iPad): Settings iPhone iOS 13
  2. Go to Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi Settings iPhone iOS 13
  3. Make sure to toggle it on.
  4. Then tap on the wireless network name you wish to connect your iPhone to: select wifi network on iPhone
  5. Type its network security key.
