    Good Question. Wifi passwords were always the most pain thing as myself doing a clean install. Never found a solution for it. Said that iCloud isn't saving them.

    iCloud Keychain does Wifi Passwords.

    setup as new and wifi passwords

    After saving hundreds wifi passwords to iphone and keychain i did a reset to network settings in my iphone.
    Every wifi password gone, and didnt downloaded from icloud keychain again.
    Is this correct?
    Safari passwords are ok
