        Are there programatic ways to turn on WiFi and latch the phone to a known SSID ?

        Without Jailbreaking

         

        I want my users to latch to a particular wifi network(if available) whenever they open my app.

         

        Some stackoverflow posts say that it is not possible and that Apple may open up to developers in future (Though this was posted in 2012).

        Does Apple have any such plans to open that up ?

         

        does the below link speak of registering SSID - does it mean it allows me to connect to wifi programatically ?
