Connecting to Photon from iOS (Photon Setup)

Hello there,

I have a question relating the SparkSetup SDK, which allows to create an app to set up the device.
We want to use the SDK to create an app for end-users (to allow them to configure their product).

It is working great so far. With the android App all photons in discovery-mode get listed within the app. In iOS the user has to switch to the settings and manually connect to the photon.

I already googled it and found a lot of hints, that “Without the use of private library (Apple80211) you can only get the SSID of the network your device is currently connected to.” (Quoted from strackoverflow).

Is there any other way to connect to the photon directly from an iOS App? Just want to make the process as easy as possible for the end-user.

Thank you in advance!
