LCOS version 10.20 and later: Compatibility of Apple mobile clients (iPhone, iPad) with WPA2/WPA3 compatibility mode


As of LCOS version 10.20, the new Wi-Fi security standard WPA3 has been integrated. This can be configured to operate exclusively (WPA3 only) or in WPA2/WPA3 mixed mode.

The WPA2/WPA3 mixed mode only operates WPA3 if the security standard is supported by the client too. If the client does not support WPA3, then the security standard WPA2 is used instead.
  • Due to a lack of compatibility in iOS operating systems lower than iOS 12.1.1, Apple mobile clients (iPhone and iPad) cannot connect to a WLAN if the WPA2/WPA3 mixed mode is enabled.
