I've got an iPhone 6 on iOS 12 (the final supported iOS version). It automatically connects to XM hotspots, but often the signal is too weak and I get no data, so my streaming audio stops. I tried to stop it from connecting to hotspots at all, but failed (I can tell it to forget a particular hotspot, but it will still connect next time I'm in the area and will also connect to all other hotspots). So if I can't do that, can I at least get it to only connect to hotspots with a strong wifi signal? Does it work that way for people with newer phones?

Removing it will allow you to disable auto join or forget the network, however you may not be able to connect to the password protected XFINITY network automatically. Non-passworded WiFi like xfinitywifi should still work if your device MAC is registered with Xfinity. Connecting to XFINITY WiFi may prompt for a user/pass for your account. Settings -> General -> Profiles -> XFINITY WiFi -> Remove Profile.
I'm using a unlocked, originally AT&T, iPhone 6 and this is driving me crazy too. Seems like it should be possible to disable it, since this phone doesn't have any Xfinity software on it, but under Settings>General>Profiles there is nothing.
