Wireguard + NextDNS on iOS


On iOS with the latest NextDNS version, for NextDNS to work together with Wireguard (no DNS servers set in client config) the "use ultra low latency network" has to be unchecked.

Any idea why that is ? Maybe there should be a note about that somewhere.

Have a good day

  • Hi,

    This is still an issue. Furthermore, it seems that Wireguard cannot be used together with an Apple Configuration Profile, probably because there is no way to uncheck the ultra low latency network in the profile. Would it be possible to add that to apple.nextdns.io ?


  • Thanks, it works !

  • I just stumbled upon this post, having been experiencing the same problem.  I can also confirm that it works on my iPad on iOS beta 14.5!

  • Nice trick. 

    On Mac, this doesn't seem to work unfortunately. Wireguard doesn't save the config without DNS.
