Do you want to change the DNS used by your iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro running iOS 15? Maybe for privacy reasons or to customize your network settings? Well, you can easily change the DNS servers on your device for Wi-Fi. In this guide, we will show you how to do it, step-by-step.
First, go back to your home screen by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. On the home screen, tap on “Settings.” In settings, you want to tap on “Wi-Fi” and then tap on the information button next to your Wi-Fi network.
Next, scroll down and tap on “DNS.” At the moment, it is set to “Automatic.” You need to choose “Manual” and delete the current DNS server. Then, tap on “Add Server.”
In the DNS server’s name field, type in the DNS server’s address you want to use. The three popular ones are OpenDNS, Google DNS, and Cloudflare DNS. OpenDNS offers high privacy, while Google DNS is fast and reliable. Cloudflare DNS is known for its security features.
For example, if you want to use OpenDNS, copy and paste this address into your DNS address field: 220.127.116.11. Or, if you want to use Google DNS, type in this address: 18.104.22.168. After typing in the address, tap on “Save.”
That’s it! You have now changed the DNS or the domain name server on your device. If you want, you can also set the DNS for your cellular network. However, it might be a bit more difficult since the settings are different from Wi-Fi. One way to change the DNS for your cellular connection is by setting up a VPN service or using a third-party app to create a dummy VPN connection.
In conclusion, changing the DNS on your iPhone can help you customize your network settings and protect your privacy. We hope this step-by-step guide has been helpful.
