Setting up a proxy in iOS for iPhone and iPad. Connecting and disconnecting

Connecting a proxy server on iOS will help the owner of a smartphone from Apple anonymously use the Internet and communicate with other people. The connected server will act as a technical intermediary between the user's gadget and the web resources that he visits. Actual geolocation and other device data will not be visible to sites. You will find detailed instructions on how to configure proxy settings for iPhone below. We will take a closer look at the process of connecting and disconnecting a proxy server on an Apple gadget.

You can also separately configure Telegram proxies on your smartphone.

Proxy settings for iOS: iPhone & iPad

To connect the proxy server to your iPhone or iPad on IOS, follow this step-by-step instruction:

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Click on the Wi-Fi option.


  3. Click on your Wi-Fi network.


  4. Scroll down to the HTTP proxy section. If you have not used proxies on the iPhone before, then this option will be disabled by default.


  5. Then you have 2 options: specify proxy data on iPhone manually or set automatic configuration. The second method is suitable if you have the address of the proxy auto-configuration script.

    Let's go the first way. Select the “Manual” data entry option.


  6. Enter the IP address and port of your proxy for iOS.
  7. If authorization is necessary, enter the username, password in the fields below and enable authentication.


  8. Click the “Save” button.

Proxy setup in iOS is now complete. Now all requests to the network from your device will be transmitted through the connected proxy for iPhone.

If after configuring the proxy you cannot access the Internet, there are 2 possible reasons for this: you entered the wrong server data or the selected proxy is not functional. Verify that the IP address and port entered are correct. If everything is correct, then try replacing the proxy.
