        I have read same rumors about this two features saying that they are re-enabled (they was deprecated with IOS9).

         

        Someone can confirm this rumors?

          I have read same rumors about this two features saying that they are re-enabled (they was deprecated with IOS9).

          Your question is mixing up behaviour and deprecation state, which are two different things:

          • behaviour — In the late iOS 9 betas these functions were disabled (they were present but they didn’t produce useful results).  In iOS 9 GM they reverted to their previous behaviour.

          • deprecation state — They were officially deprecated in the iOS 9 SDK with this message:

          For captive network applications, this has been completely replaced by <NetworkExtension/NEHotspotHelper.h>. For other applications, there is no direct replacement. Please file a bug describing your use of this API to that we can consider your requirements as this situation evolves.

          You can read the whole story on this archived thread.  Only seven pages!

          I’ve moved your question over to Core OS > Networking, so other folks can see any follow-up questions you have about this stuff.
