Cant enter network name on iOS 13 Yeelight App


I have been using the app for about a year now. I was testing iOS 13 beta on my iPhone 7 Plus and when I try to add new devices, I go to “Install your device” page, click on Next Step and I go to the “Select Network” page. On this page, I can click on Please enter Wi-Fi password input and enter the password but the network name input is unclickable. It just never becomes editable, feels like it is disabled.

Probably something about iOS 13 beta. Could you please take a look?

The network name field is automatically filled by the app reading from the system, and it is unclickable indeed.
So maybe there’s some permission issue for reading network info on iOS13 beta. I will look into it.
Thanks for your feedback.

Oh, since nothing was showing up and it says enter, I thought it was supposed to be editable. Yes the network information does not show up in that field.

Thank you so much.

Any news? I’ve the same issue on iOS 13 beta 3…

I can’t setup my yeelight v2 color as well because of that :frowning:


I’m also unable to connect the Yeelight with iOS 13 beta. With iOS 12 I had no problems and since I like the light I bought a second one. Before it arrived I upgraded to iOS 13 beta. I had no problems using the first light.
When the second light came I reset the first light to install group light, but the app doesn’t say I should buy a light.
Trying to install a single light also doesn’t work, so now I’m stuck with 2 very bright white lights. (I have 2 colored versions.)

I hope you can find a solution soon.

There is a way to get it to work.
Download the Mi Home app. You can install the light from there and share it to your account. It shows up in the Yeelight app and is ready to use.

I am not sure if my case is in the same problem as my V2 color bulb could not connect to the Wi-Fi network it was stuck at 25% complete then failed. I am using iPhone 7Plus and iOS 12.3.1 and I picked Singapore server, please advice.
