iPhone Proxy Integration


In the realm of digital connectivity, iPhones are renowned for their robust security and premium features. However, even these advanced devices can benefit significantly from the integration of proxies, especially in an era where online privacy and global accessibility are critical. Bright Data’s proxy service, known for its vast network and advanced features, offers iPhone users a unique edge in the digital world. This guide delves into the seamless integration of Bright Data proxies with your iPhone, transforming your device into a powerhouse of secure and unrestricted internet access.

Important Notes for iPhone Users:

  • Wi-Fi Only Configuration: iOS confines proxy usage to Wi-Fi connections, excluding cellular data from proxy benefits.
  • Proxy Type Limitation: iOS supports HTTP proxies exclusively, meaning SOCKS5 proxies aren’t an option.
  • iOS 17 Reference: This guide, with its iOS 17 screenshots, offers instructions likely to remain relevant in future iOS updates.
