I'm quite sure, that the this is not possible with iOS, because of Apple's strict security policies. You may have a better luck on Android, with enabled Android OS Automation option (Ranorex Settings >> Plugins tab >> Mobile section). But even with this option, it won't be easy task because you will have to manually find the appropriate UI elements via spy (tracking is not possible for system apps). You may eventually need to use adb commands to achieve what you want. I believe there is an adb command to turn the wifi off and on?
