On an iphone-ipad you need to go to settings, then to wifi. in there you will see an option:connect automatically to known connections. on your computer it is supposed to do it automatically

Alexander is correct about saved Preferred Networks being automatically connected to on Mac OS X systems.

(If you are having trouble with this then you might need to remove the saved Preferred Network you are having trouble with and reconnect and save it with it's security passcode)

On iOS devices like the iPhone and IPod it is also set to automatically join/connect to Known Networks (same as saved Preferred Networks on Mac OS X) by default.

You can only adjust if you are asked to join new networks automatically of if you have to manually connect to new networks under iOS 7 from SettingsWi-Fi > Ask to Join Networks.

(If you are having trouble - remove the Known Network you are having trouble with and reconnect and save it with it's security passcode)
