IU Secure wireless connections: iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad)
Note: Apple uses the term iPhone to refer to the software and configuration of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Here, iPhone describes all these devices.
If you use an iPhone to connect to the wireless network at Indiana University, use the IU Secure network whenever possible.
To gain full Internet access for your device on the IU network, you need to register the device's MAC address. Before doing so, your device will not receive an IP address that allows a successful Internet connection.
