Apple has recently pushed out their IOS 11. We’ve noticed a change in the way guests are redirected on MIKROTIK equipment. It seems that all other gateway equipment is not affected.
In the video below, you will see that after a guest connects on the splash page, a blank, white page appears instead of the intended redirect page. Once the ‘Done’ is clicked by the guest the intended page appears.
At this point, we believe that this is a bug with IOS 11 and Apple will most-likely be releasing a patch that will make it work like it did prior to the IOS 11 release. We’ve asked Mikrotik engineers and they’ve indicated that there’s nothing different with their equipment and the guest device handles everything with the redirect.
We will update this article if we see any changes or patches that corrects the apple redirect change.
