BT has launched a new iOS app that will automatically connect users to any of its 5.2 million Wi-Fi hotspots in the UK.

Consumers running a device with iOS 6 and above can download the free BT Wi-Fi iOS app at

According to BT, this ensures iPad and iPad Mini users can take advantage of a "seamless" wireless broadband connection at any BT Wi-Fi hotspot.

Erik Raphael, Director of BT Wi-Fi and Devices, said latest figures show that BT Wi-Fi usage has more than doubled in the last quarter to 6.6 billion minutes.

"As demand is increasing, it makes sense that customers can automatically connect to our hotspots," he stated.

"Our new iOS app connects a customer whenever they are near a hotspot without the need to open the app again. This makes it even easier to find and use BT Wi-Fi."

Meanwhile, BT has confirmed the launch of its first ever Windows 8.1 app, delivering automatic Wi-Fi connection to desktop, laptop and tablet devices.
