How to change DNS on iPhone in Settings
First, these instructions only work for Wi-Fi connections. iOS does not allow you to change DNS servers when you are connected to a cellular network. Also, changes are network-specific, so every time you connect to a new wireless network, you’ll need to change the DNS server. The good news is that iOS remembers the settings, so the next time you connect to the network, you don’t have to do anything.
The steps are as follows:
- From your iPhone’s home screen, go to Adjust.
- Click on the item Y-Fay. Available wireless networks within range of your iPhone will appear. Click on the connected Wi-Fi network. The window shown below appears.
- click DNS configuration.
- He presses hand made.
- Delete the existing DNS servers and import the new DNS servers. You can refer to the popular DNS below.

How to change DNS on iPhone using a VPN
Another way you can access blocked websites is by using a VPN app. NordVPN, for example, offers a private DNS in their apps, ensuring greater security and privacy for your traffic.
Native VPN apps automatically use NordVPN’s DNS servers when connected to a VPN. This prevents DNS leaks while your VPN is connected, ensuring that your VPN’s DNS requests are secure even when you’re on a cellular network or Wi-Fi.
When you connect to a VPN, your DNS is also changed. For example, NordVPN’s DNS server addresses are 103.86.96,100 and 103.86.99,100.
