Why Should I Combine Connections on iPad?

When iPads switch between connections, there's a problem: this takes time, at least a few seconds.

So what can happen during those seconds, you ask? Here are some examples:

  • you may lose an important idea during your video calls
  • you may be required to log in again to a particular platform or work VPN you're using, because the IP address of your device has changed with the switch. This means additional time.
  • you may be booted from the online game you're playing
  • you may lose your unsaved work in the cloud

... and the list can go on.

By combining connections on your iPad, you get more reliable connectivity. Your session will be consistent - meaning that your IP will not change if Wi-Fi should fail, because you'll still be connected to cellular data. That saves a lot of time and hassles.

Faster Internet is also a benefit when you combine connections on iPad. You can create a "super-pipe" from your Wi-Fi + cellular data connections.

This will help with bandwidth-intensive apps like live streamingvideo callsonline gamingremote learning, etc.

All of this (and more!) is possible with the Speedify channel bonding app.

How to Combine Connections on iPad

Here's what you have to do to use both Wi-Fi and cellular data simultaneously on your iPad:

  1. Verify that your cellular data connection is on and working. Go to Settings > Cellular and flip he switch to on.
  2. Connect to Wi-Fi. Verify that your Wi-Fi is enabled on your iPad and connected to a network.

    Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and flip the switch to on. You can then select a network from the list that appears. Keep in mind, private networks may require you to enter a password before connecting.
