iOS: How to add WiFi networks WITHOUT joining
Posted on 2012-03-28
Setting up an iPad to be used in another location for someone with the technical abilities of a 4-year old. I'd like to have the WiFi setup so this person can connect to WiFi automatically. I can't find a way for the network settings to be saved until the iOS devices actually connects to the access point.
Entering settings like this:
Settings >> WiFi >> Choose a Network >> Other >>
Next, the on-screen keyboard has `Join` button grayed out, so you must click the `Hide Keyboard` icon.
Next, the `Enter network information` `Join` button is grayed out, so you must click `Cancel`
Finally, you're brought back to `Settings >> WiFi >> Choose a Network ` with nothing saved.
How can you manually enter Wi-Fi Networks without joining? All options are on the table as this device is unlocked and has ssh access.
