Free iPhone/iPad (ios) wifi scanner

Everybody knows that apple doesn’t allow a wifi scanner in the app store.

However little people know that Apple did release an inhouse app for this.

This app is called Airport Utility !


To activate the scanning, go to the settings of your iPhone, then scroll down to the Airport Utility settings and activate the wi-fi scanner option (please remember to turn if off or you’ll run out of juice pretty fast).

To start the scan open the app and click the bottom right. Let it scan and press stop afterwards.

You can export in a csv format (SSID, BSS, RSSI, Channel, Time) via e-mail, airdrop or in an iMsg.

You can also see the used channels by pressing on the I button on the bottom.
