Well, strike up the band and let the confetti cannons loose. With iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, Apple has finally made it easy to connect to a Wi-Fi network or Bluetooth device. It's OK, Android users, you can point and laugh. We know you've been able to do this for ages. But I wouldn't laugh too hard -- the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are turning out to be stunning phones.
For years, Android users have had the benefit of a quick settings panel that makes the process for common tasks such as connecting to Wi-Fi networks or Bluetooth devices a breeze. iPhone users, on the other hand, have had to take a few extra steps and navigate into the Settings app to do either of those tasks.
Now's the time to connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in a snap. Or really, a long press.
