iOS Devices not handing off
I am having trouble with iOS devices. not handing off. They stay connected to the more distant mesh points until WiFi is toggled dropping performance.
I toggled the various handoff settings including turning off all options and none of this changes anything.
This is just the way iOS works, unfortunately.
Unless a WiFi signal gets ridiculously low (practically to the point that it's likely to drop connection), iOS will try and stay connected to the same WiFi source (even if there is a better one available).
As you have found, the only workaround for this is to toggle WiFi off/on again.
