Recently I bought a Huawei mate 20 pro. This phone connects automatically to the strongest wifi available when I move in house.
I can not find a way to do that using my iPhone X.

A kind of solution is to stay on the same ssid but using different frequencies on different routers.
But is there a solution for different networks aka different ssid's ?

Thank you for the answer.
But does it let you prioritize by signal strength ?
Not per se. It lets you choose the WiFi networks you want to use by excluding others. But you can also choose to connect to an excluded network and once you leave it, it will be excluded again until the next time you choose to join it.

I use it so that I can connect to the WiFi in my car but not my home WiFi.

I really don't get why something fairly basic like that isn't built into iOS, especially so many years later.
Yeah. And this app is even on the app store. It's not a jailbreak tweak or a sideloaded thing, it's right there.

Yet Apple doesn't implement it. Go figure.

I needed a Huawei - Android phone to find out about this fault in design and how easy live can be.
