How to Put a Static IP on an iPhone

Save

When you connect your Apple iPhone to a nearby wireless network, the device acquires a random IP address automatically using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, better known as DHCP. However, you can adjust the network settings on your iPhone and put a static IP address on it instead. If you are having trouble using Wi-Fi with your iPhone, you may want to try using a static IP address to see if it resolves the issue.

  • Tap on the "Settings" icon on your iPhone's screen.

  • Go to the "Wi-Fi" tab at the top of the "Settings" window.

  • Move the slider at the top of screen to the "On" position if Wi-Fi is not on already.

  • Tap on the blue arrow next to the name of the Wi-Fi network that you to access.

  • Tap on the "Static" tab in the window that displays your current network settings.

  • Tap in the "IP Address" field and enter the static IP address you want to use on your iPhone.

  • Tap on the "Wi-Fi Networks" button in the upper-left corner of the screen to save the settings and return to the previous window.
