Bug Description

While using the phone, without using the Terminal, there is no way to see the device's IP address or MAC address.

System Settings is the obvious home for this information.

This is apparently a release blocker.

<>: "Unlike the items for selecting a different network, [the current network] should be a page stack item. Choosing it should navigate to a screen with the network name as its header, a 'Disconnect' button (which automatically navigates you back to the 'Wi-Fi' screen), and an item with a copyable IP address."

<>: "The 'Wi-Fi address' and 'Bluetooth address' values should be the MAC addresses for the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modems respectively."
