Share your Wi-Fi with your guest using Raspberry Pi

While a smaller volume slider and new AirPod controls are pretty neat, perhaps the most interesting feature that Apple has introduced with iOS 11 is the ability to share Wi-Fi passwords with other devices.
First discovered by the folks at 9to5Mac, it appears that iOS 11 devices can now share Wi-Fi passwords with one another simply by being in close proximity to one another. The way this works is as follows:
Step 1: Open the Wi-Fi Password screen on your unconnected iOS 11 device.
Step 2: Once the screen is opened, move the unconnected iOS 11 device to a nearby connected iOS 11 device.
Step 3: Doing so will cause a prompt to appear on the connected iOS 11 device that asks the user if they would like to send the Wi-Fi password over to the unconnected device.
Step 4: If the user chooses to send the password, the password field on the unconnected device will be populated automatically after a brief delay.
While this feature will no doubt prove handy when it comes to sharing Wi-Fi passwords, do note that this feature is exclusive to iOS 11. As such, those who are stuck on older versions of iOS will still need to input the Wi-Fi password manually.
