How do I check if my iPad is on the same Wi-Fi network as my iPhone?

In order to use the iOS 8.0 Continuity and Handoff features on your iPad for answering phone calls and sharing documents your tablet needs to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone. You can check your Wi-Fi connection on both your iPad and iPhone in the Settings app. To do so just open the Settings app on your device and tap the Wi-Fi panel located under the Airplane mode option. A blue check mark will appear next to the name of the Wi-Fi network your device is currently connected to. Just tap any network name from the list below to change Wi-Fi networks.
