iOS 11 update to stop iPhones connecting to weak WiFi spots
New iOS 11 beta 4 for Developers includes new tool to eliminate weak WiFi spots
Public WiFi users will be pleased to know that Apple's newest iOS 11 update helps prevent connectivity to poor WiFi signals.
The upcoming feature will automatically disable auto-join for WiFi networks that show weak connectivity, eliminating the headache for Apple iPhone owners. This means, when users are in a public area that shows a mass of WiFi hotspots, the new tool will disregard poor signals.
Also when a user joins a public WiFi spot and it slowly begins to lose its connection, this iOS update will automatically connect to the carrier network.
The update has not been confirmed by Apple, however beta users noticed the new auto-join button, which looks like a small blue ‘I' icon next to any found WiFi network in Settings.
