The latest iOS 11 software update has a new feature that should be quite helpful for travellers and those who use local Wi-Fi hotspots. The auto-join button was released in the early version of the iOS 11 beta, it could be found by tapping the "i" icon next to any Wi-Fi network. Now when you want to connect to a public Wi-Fi with a slew of hot spots, you can let the software automatically scrub the worst offenders from the list. The latest feature will put an end to those needles notifications that pop up whenever you walk past your local coffee spot. 

Automatically disabling the auto-join is a great feature, one that should've existed years ago, but it seems that Apple borrowed a bit from Android, which has had a version of the feature in one form or another for years. Samsung has a feature called Smart Network Switch, which switches to mobile data when a Wi-Fo network is weak. Apple is not switching you off a bad network so much as to prevent your phone from joining one in the first place. Regardless of the origins of this feature, it will most definitely be useful to avoid spotty public Wi-Fi or watching an app become unresponsive because you connected to an unwanted network.
