Trying to share your Wi-Fi password can be very frustrating and nerve-racking. It is especially frustrating when you have a complicate Wi-FI password (almost everyone these days have frustrating Wi-Fi passwords). But luckily for iPhone iOS has a built-in feature that lets you quickly share Wi-Fi passwords between devices. All you need to do is bring the phones near each other. It uses Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and each user’s Apple ID to securely share the password between devices. On this post, we would be discussing just exactly how to share your Wi-Fi password between iPhones.

- Unlock the other iOS device and hold it up to the device you’re connecting. That already-connected device will receive a prompt asking to share the Wi-Fi Password. Press “Share Password,” and just like that, the connecting device will receive the password and connect.
- The password box on the second device will autofill the password and connect.
