How to Enable Wi-Fi Assist on iPhone and iPad

In iOS 9 you can turn on Wi-Fi assist to avoid connectivity issue on your iPhone and iPad. The new feature will automatically shift to cellular data in case of poor Wi-Fi connectivity.

Almost all of us at some point have been stuck with poor Wi-Fi connectivity. Above that, the most frustrating part is when your iPhone or iPad is struggling to get hold of poor Wi-Fi. We had to go all the way to settings, disable Wi-Fi and turn on cellular data; in order to continue internet connectivity.

Apple has finally relieved all us from this annoyance by introducing Wi-Fi Assist option in iOS 9. Wi-Fi Assist is a tool that monitors the strength of bandwidth and connectivity and decides accordingly whether to continue Wi-Fi or shift to cellular data.
