When Apple released iOS 16, it added a new feature that lets you easily check any WiFi passwords saved on your device.

This new feature makes it a whole lot easier to share WiFi passwords with others.

You can check on any saved WiFi password and even copy them to your clipboard for easy sharing with others.

It’s actually possible to see your WiFi passwords if you’re on an older version of iOS.

However, it’s a bit more complicated and requires you to connect your iPhone to a Mac computer and use Keychain Access.

This article will focus on viewing WiFi passwords on iOS 16. Since this is a pretty new feature, it might not be super obvious that it’s available quite yet.

But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Follow along to find out how to see your saved WiFi passwords on iOS 16.
