For an Apple iPod 6 Touch (so I assume the same as an iPhone 6).

This is following on from the SkyQ thread of last week.

I have the RF Explorer Combi that reaches into the 5GHz range to check for measuring signals around the house. Very useful but whilst there is a dedicated WiFi setting for 2.4GHz stuff, on the upper band settings currently I only have the frequency range which does not differentiate between channels.

On the office Samsung Galaxy I have the WiFi Analyser from Abdelrahman which runs at real time and gives instant clues as to dead zones and conflicts between routers and other wireless kit.
That particular app has the capability of scanning at 5GHz, but the android is only 2.4GHz.

The iPod Touch is 802.11ac compliant but I have not found an app that is similar to the one above.
So, does anyone have an app link for the iPhone/iPad that can analyse the 5GHz band ?

Take a look for ""Network Analyzer Pro"" , it's not a free version but it does a ton of stuff.

I had looked at the free version earlier and found this snippet in the help section

Wi-Fi Signal
Note: This feature is available in the Android version of the app only.

The Wi-Fi Signal page shows all the Wi-Fi networks in the neighborhood together with their signal strengths, associated channel and other information. There are three different views: channel list, channel graph, and channel usage. The views can be toggled by a view selection button in the toolbar or by swiping left/right between the individual screens. Also, the first toolbar icon toggles between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ranges.


So, does the paid iOS version have the 2.4/5 GHz switch or is this disabled ?

Many including Techet mention Apple has a number of developer restrictions owing to 'data privacy' which prevents them fro providing the same tools for both iOS and Android, Techet cites AirPort (Apples own version of wifi scanner) as bypassing this restriction.
