How to forget a Wi-Fi network on Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus (iOS 9 tutorial)

Every once in a while this happens: someone changes the Wi-Fi password at work and all your devices stop connecting to the network and start falling back to costly mobile data.

It's a simple thing: you need to change the Wi-Fi password correspondingly on your device, but how do you forget the old Wi-Fi details and start afresh? Well, you can easily do so on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and we walk you through the process in a few simple steps right below.

All it takes is a quick trip to the settings and you can forget the network settings that are currently saved on your phone.

Then, you can easily reconnect to the same network, or - in case your phone keeps on connecting to the wrong network - you can forget a particular network and have it connect to the one you want. Here's how to do it.

Makes little sense when right thing to do is just ask for updated password. Instead of this 5 step process.

Or maybe I just don't want that one network saved anymore. Acting like 5 steps takes 3 hours lol. It literally takes 3 seconds. Go download an app to fiddle with your Play Store update notes

Remember that If you're using iCloud Keychain, it'll also remove that network from any other iPhones, iPads, and Macs associated with your iCloud ID. first read what is What is iCloud Keychain?
