The Wi-Fi scanner feature is the part of the app I use the most. It tells me the strength and channel of all Wi-Fi networks in the neighborhood. You have to go to the Settings app and scroll down to the Airport Utility section to enable Wi-Fi scanning.
Can’t find my wifi.
If you don’t see WiFi scanner option, go to settings and toggle the option on. No idea why it was disabled by default on my iPad
Not useful if your iOS device is use a third-party router.
Have had this app since the extreme launched. Totally agree with what people are saying about lack of features and intuitivity. This is Apple and yet their router app seems more outdated than other manufacturers. Come one Apple get it together! Since last iOS update however my phone can’t seem to detect my extreme or express can’t connect or configure. Great!
Did not work with other WiFi routers
Apple app and NO DARK MODE on 13.6 STILL APPLE DOESN'T follow own app guide lines for App Store wow
Used it to map my signal strength and move repeaters. Optimized my WiFi net, eliminating dropped signals in my basement.
You’d think an app, made by Apple to manage Apple equipment might support TouchID or FaceID, but nope. Apple is done with this product line. They have abandoned adding even the most basic features. That’s disappointing.
