Summary of changing DNS Iphone

Personally, I don’t like Apple’s Settings (Apple’s Settings app) and the way the app presents options to change Iphone DNS. In comparison, on Android Pie, the DNS option is simple. You go to Settings > Network & Internet > Advanced > Private DNS. You only need to install it once and it works on all networks (Wi-Fi and Cellular).

Even if you don’t remember where the preference is, you can just open Settings on your Android device and enter DNS and it will show you the option. Do the same thing on iOS and you get nothing, it’s not a searchable option.
