Connect to Wi-Fi on an iOS device

Introduction

Connect to Wi-Fi using an iOS device, such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod.

Instructions

Instructions: 
  1. On your device, go to Settings then WiFi. Check that Ask to Join Networks is On.
  2. Next, tap to select either Amherst or Amherst Secure as the network (we recommend Amherst Secure) if one is not already selected. When connecting to the Amherst Secure network, you will be prompted to authenticate. If you get a message warning about connecting to an unsecure network, tap Accept. There is also a third network option, ClassroomTV. Select this choice only if you are in a classroom engaged in using Apple TV.

If you find that your device keeps defaulting to being on the ClassroomTV wireless network, on your device go to Settings > General > Network. Tap ClassroomTV, then move the switch to Off for Auto-Join. For Auto-Login leave it set to On.
