    Now that the iPhone 6 supports 802.11ac, 5GHz networks are visible and can be connected, but non-802.11ac networks running on 2.4GHz are still visible and more often than not, the iPhone tends to connect to them.

    Does anyone know a way to disable this mode, i.e. disable 802.11a/b/g/n?

    Go to wifi settings. To the right of available wifi networks is a little "I". Click that then forget this network. It will no longer connect to those unless you put your password back in.

    Close, and thank you, but most 802.11ac adapters have a setting that allows for the mode to be 802.11ac only, which has greater throughput.

    Do that from the router side if you must.
