Hi All,

I have one doubt how to open list available wifi screen from my app?

I have used below line that works fine in iPhone devices which are below the version 10.

UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl(new NSUrl("prefs:root=WIFI"));

In iPad it's not working at all.

Now I need this to be working well in both in iPhone and iPad devices irrespective of the version.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

    Did your app actually went through the app store without being reject using that line of code? Anyway that's not supported, officially. And it looks like they removed it on iOS 10

    @suneel_kumar_reddy - Did you find a solution for this? I am finding that if I use UIKit.UIApplication.OpenSettingsUrlString navigation to settings is working, but anything of the form "prefs:root=Privacy&path=CONTACTS" is failing. I'd like to be able to navigate directly to the appropriate part of the settings, rather than the root of the settings.
