Here are the correct steps to connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network on your iPhone. Your friend sets his Wi-Fi network to be hidden and invisible to be more secure, since other people can not see it.

1. Ask your friend to give you his Wi-Fi network name, security type like WPA, and access password.

2. Go to "Settings > Wi-Fi". You see Wi-Fi settings.

2. Turn the "Wi-Fi" switch on. You should not see your friend's Wi-Fi network name listed, because it is hidden and invisible.

3. Tap on "Other..." at the end of the list. You see an empty form.

4. Enter the Wi-Fi network name like "John's Wi-Fi" given to by your friend.

5. Select the correct security type like "WPA" given to by your friend.

6. Enter the password given to by your friend.

5. Tap on "Join". In a few seconds, your iPhone will be connected to your friend's Wi-Fi network. Enjoy the free Wi-Fi service!
