I'm trying to set up a new iPad at work, and in order to get it onto the network I need the Wi-Fi configuration file, but I cannot find it anywhere.

It is on all of the other iPads, so I am wondering if there is any way to get the Wi-Fi config file off one of the other iPads through Apple Configurator, so I can have it for this, and all future iPads?

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) Have a look at this Apple Support document and see if that helps: Share your Wi-Fi password from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. – Nimesh Neema May 29 at 20:57
  • I had a look but it isn't quite what I am looking for, given that I need a way to be able to fully deploy devices without depending on other devices, and having this config file would allow me to do so. Thanks for the suggestion though! – darkchief1 May 29 at 21:12
  • Look into using a MDM if you want to deploy settings and manage a group of iPads. JAMF Cloud has a free 3-device solution (then $2 per device after) you might like to experiment with. I use the enterprise version at work to help manage large numbers of iPads and MBAs. – IconDaemon May 29 at 21:35
  • We use Cisco Meraki at present, but when configuring them with Apple Configurator 2 I need to add my WIFI config file that I can't find on the Mac we use to setup the devices. – darkchief1 May 29 at 21:45
