When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your iPhone will use default settings like dynamically obtaining the IP address.

But you change those Wi-Fi network settings by following these steps.

1. Go to "Settings > Wi-Fi". You see a list of available Wi-Fi networks.

2. Tap on "info" icon at the end of the network name you want to change. You see Wi-Fi network detail settings.

Configure IP        Automatic
Configure DNS       Automatic
Configure Proxy     Off

3. Tap on "Configure IP - Automatic" to change it. You see 3 options:

Automatic
Manual          check
BootP

4. Tap on "Manual" to select it. You see manual setting details.

5. Enter your fixed IP address and other information:

ID Address      192.168.1.101
Subnet Mask     255.255.255.0
Router          192.168.1.0

6. Tap on "Save" to save the changes.

7. Tap on "Join This Network". In a few seconds, your iPhone will be connected to this Wi-Fi network with a fixed IP address.
