How to Configure a Static IP Address (iOS)

Question

How can I get a static IP address on iOS devices?

Solution

When using static IP addresses on home and other private networks, they should be chosen from within the standard private IP address ranges listed:

  • 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255
  • 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.255.255
  • 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.255

To set a static IP address, do the following:

  1. Tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Go to Wi-Fi.
  3. Tap on the blue information icon (i) next to the name of the Wi-Fi network
    • This may be a blue error if you are using something older than iOS 7.
