Hello, it's Lonnie again. One thing I loved about my iPhone was the ability to come home and the device automatically turn wifi on when I got home. Can my new S10+ do this?
Thank you in advance,

Yes, by using Bixby Routines, you can set it up using the "If This, Then This" system and have a routine so when you are at home, WiFi will turn on.
Hey Lonnie, I hope you are doing well today.
Yes, this is possible and very easy to set up actually. I believe my device learned my locations automatically and knew where I turn WiFi on but you can set this up now and skip the process of the phone learning it on it's own.
Head over to:
• Settings>Advanced features>Bixby Routines
• Select a premade routine or create a new one by pressing the "+" on the top right. If creating a new one, give it a name.
• Under the "If" section, press the "+" button.
• Select the "Home" option then press next.
• Under the "Then" section, press the "+" button.
• Select the Wifi option and select the "on" option. Press the done button.
• Press done.
That's it, once your in your home area, the device should turn WiFi on automatically.
I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

How about a routine for turning in the music app (or better still my YouTube Music app) which when leaving home? What would be the "if" for leaving my house? Thanks in advance. Willem
I have a Bixby Routine for when I leave my apartment. I set it up a while ago but it shows If Leaving... and my address so leaving a location must be one of the available options.
Thanks a bunch! Found it. First I had to go to location, then I could select leaving or arriving. Also, under the ‘then’ options I could select any apps that will open so I chose my YouTube music app.
