-====== Recommended settings and setup videos for iOS ====== 
- 
- 
-Please make sure you are on iOS 11.2 or later. There were significant issues with iOS 11.0 and 11.1 in terms of connectivity. Be aware that if you upgrade your iOS to a new .0 release you should be suspicious of your iOS device more so than Poly for any drastic reductions in functionality. 
- 
-Currently the latest version of iOS 11.x is the most stable for Poly. 
- 
- 
-===== Normal iOS Setup ===== 
-In this scenario, you are probably best set to use your iPhone hotspot, if you have one. If you do not, or you find it flakey, you could use Chord Poly's hotspot feature. iPhone hotspot mode requires little else other than turning it on, but some folks do not have a hotspot function in their contracts, and it seems a little less reliable. ​

- 
- 
-To switch from home/office to hotspot, just activate your iPhone hotspot and walk out the door. 
- 
-Basic Troubleshooting:​ 
- 
-If your Poly light flashes constantly and does not go solid, you need to re-check your WiFi settings by going back into hotspot mode. 
- 
-If your Poly light goes solid and you are unable to "​see"​ Poly from your phone and are sure theyre on the same network, it is likely your Wifi gear is advanced and works correctly, but [[chordpoly-issues-igmp|you are running into a bug with Poly. See here for more details.]]

- 
-===== iOS using Poly in Poly's own hotspot network ===== 
- 
-{{:​cropped-cropped-apmfinalnoir.png?​nolink&​120 |}} 
-There are a few reasons you would want to use Poly's own hotspot instead of your Phone. 
-First, if you have no Hotspot capability on your phone. 
-Second, if you are getting on a plane and need to use Airplane mode (Which doesn'​t let you use hotspot mode on a phone) ​ 
-Finally, if you are experiencing flakiness on other settings and especially if you notice dropouts and the P.Status light blinking and going back to solid when it happens - indicating network connectivity issues.. 
- 
-The downside of using Poly as a hotspot it that it "​steals"​ your internet connection, rendering your phone useless except for calls and controlling Poly... unless you make some changes... 
- 
-We recommend using "Poly Hybrid Hotspot Mode" as detailed below if you dont have Hotspot service or if you are finding Poly a little flakey: 
- 
-Best setup in order to play music from your Chord Poly's MicroSD card is to use the Poly Hotspot, but also removing the //default gateway// from the configuration so your phone can remain connected to the internet using its data service instead of trying to use Poly for Internet access. 
- 
-This gives you the most stable playing experience for playing from the MicroSD card using a DLNA client. My favorite one is [[http://​www.glideraudio.com| Glider Audio Player]] and the below video shows you how to set this up:
