iOS 10 public beta 2 was released a few days ago for the iPad 4th gen, iPad Air, Air 2, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2, mini 3, mini 4, iPod touch 6th gen, iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus which can be installed by non-developers enrolled in the Beta Software Program. Users have noticed changes to Messages app, Apple Music and a new option to unlock their devices and going to the Home screen by resting their finger on the Touch ID sensor. But iOS 10 will have another feature that hasn’t been included yet in any of the recently released betas.
We’re talking about a warning that iOS 10 will provide when iPhone and iPad users will connect to an unsecured Wi-Fi network. However, the OS won’t show a popup window and it won’t make any sound, but when users will head to Settings > Wi-Fi, under the Wi-Fi network’s SSID and select Security Recommendation, they’ll see the “i” button on which they’ll tap to find out if the Wi-Fi network they are using is unsecured.
If the Wi-Fi network isn’t secured, the system will show a warning which reads “Open networks provide no security and expose all network traffic.”
This feature is very important, because there are many public Wi-Fi networks that are unsecured and users connect to them without being aware that the security of their devices could be compromised. Many iOS users are connecting to Wi-Fi Hotspots offered by cable T.V. firms like Xfinity (Comcast) and Time Warner, although the companies are warning their customers that their network isn’t secure. So, users take risks and still connect, but other companies don’t flash a reminder bout their networks not being secure. iOS 10 will let users know which network is secured, so they won’t have bad experiences.
