    I was really hesitant on upgrading this time round and it took me literally 5 days until I finally did. I really haven't noticed anything at first until I looked at my WiFi. I just noticed that I have blue ! after the signal strength bars. It wasn't there before. Does anyone else have blue ! by there WiFi? I just want to know what it means.

    Sorry I never thought about that. And now I really hope I did that right because I couldn't see that little screen to upload the pix if my life depended on it. Ugh



    What is the blue "i" button displayed next to my current WiFi connection?-image.jpg

    You mean the letter "i" in a circle? It stands for Info. Tap it to see details about your wifi connection.

    The i gives you more info about your wifi connection. In iOS 6 it was a solid blue circle with a white arrow in it, Apple changed it in iOS 7.

    See now I don't recall seeing it at all in IOS6. Honestly. And if it wasn't til just recently when all this started happening to me I probably wouldn't have noticed it either. But again with all this worry about hacking etc. and then me noticing this blue marking you have to understand my concerns. Thanks so very much for your explanations.

    Well actually it's been there since iOS 3 at least but I can understand your concern. I usually use it for the "forget this network" button so I don't end up with a lot of network info on my iPhone or iPod touch

    How do you use it for the "forget this network" because doesn't that delete the entire wifi itself then?

    "Forget this network" removes the password and network info from the iOS device. It's almost like "reset network settings" but you can forget the wifi network your currently connected to instead of all. For me it's useful.

    Changed the thread title to avoid confusion about the actual subject the OP started the thread for. And also for better search results.

    But it doesn't disconnect you from your WiFi at all? Just all your info?

    Yes, it disconnects you from that WiFi connection because it wipes out the logged password for that specific WiFi router.
