Connect to Wi-Fi networks
Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that can provide inter-
net access at distances of up to 100 meters, depending on the
Wi-Fi router and your surroundings.
To use Wi-Fi, you connect to a wireless access point, or "hotspot."
some hotspots are open and you can simply connect to them.
others implement security features that require other steps to set
up, such as digital certificates or other ways to ensure that only
authorized users can connect.
To extend the life of your battery between charges, turn off Wi-Fi
when you're not using it. You can also set your device to discon-
nect automatically from Wi-Fi networks when it's sleeping.
To work with Wi-Fi settings, go to
Settings > Wireless & net-
works > Wi-Fi.
