    I have a feeling this is a simple one, but I need to know how to "forget" a WiFi network on my phone, but keep it active on my iPad.

    I have used an iPad and Mac for a while now, but just returned to the iPhone from Android with a 7 plus, my first iPhone since the 4. I have my iPad on the guest network at work, as I use it for music in the background, but do not want my phone on the network. The problem is, when I forget to manually shut off WiFi on the phone, it automatically connects. If I remove the connection from my phone, it also gets deleted from the iPad, and when I add it back, it reappears on the phone.

    Can someone guide me to the setting that stops this from happening? Also, if I disable this, what else will I lose in terms of the devices seamlessly working together? Otherwise, I love how the products all just work together.

    So you have iCloud Keychain enabled? You can try disabling it to see if that allow you to do what you want.

    I believe the settings are synced via the iCloud Keychain sync and I think the only way to stop it is to disable keychain syncing in iCloud settings (which will also stop the syncing of passwords, etc)
