EdgeWise Connect – the Best Solution When iPhone WiFi is Connected but Not Working
EdgeWise Connect is a streamlined VPN that swoops in whenever necessary to protect your connection. It seamlessly switches you between WiFi hotspots and between WiFi and cellular. This way, it’s preventing WiFi issues from interrupting your online activities.
Here’s how EdgeWise Connect works to fix your iPhone WiFi connectivity issues:
- Once you turn it on, EdgeWise runs in the background of your iPhone. You can go about your normal activities.
- It detects non-working WiFi hotspot or weak signal strength as you step out of WiFi range. EdgeWise Connect swoops in instantly to seamlessly move your web traffic over to your cellular connection.
