    Yes it will! To perform the initial setup you will just need to download and use the "Airport Utility" app, which is available for free on the app store. No worries though, it's easy! Make sure you have the app on your iPhone or iPad and follow the in-box instructions. Support is also available here on the Apple website.

  • Yes and no- it depends heavily on what exactly you mean by 'WiFi'.

    The AirPort Express WILL generate a wireless network that can be used by your iPhone and iPad, and could be used by any other device with a wireless card or that could be connected to its wired connection. If you're looking to use it to send music to a stereo, create a network to hook an AppleTV to in order to use AirPlay from your devices, transfer files between apps that allow a WiFi transfer- it will do that just fine on its own.

    BUT- if you are looking at a way to get internet access, the Airport Express WILL NOT generate this on its own. You will need some form of boradband connection (cable, DSL, etc.) to connect the AirPort Express to. From there, its WiFi connection would allow your iPhone and iPad (and anything else) to get on to the internet. The Airport Express can best be thought of as a way to SHARE an internet connection, not a way to generate one.

  • This only takes a broadband connection and makes it available through wifi. This device does not supply wifi out of the air like a mobile hotspot. If you have an iPhone you may want to look into adding on the hotspot feature through your cell provider.
    If you do have a broadband connection (on such as provided by your phone, dsl, or cable company), then yes this will provide wifi from that wired connection.

  • Yes it does. You can install the airport utility app free from the app store so you can use your phone or ipad to set it up. It will provide the same things as if you did have a computer with it.
