iPhone Tips: How to fix iPhone that won’t connect to WiFi

Why does my iPhone not connect to WIFI? Is there something wrong with it? Probably, not. It could just be some resets to fix the problem.

You were sure you didn’t forget your Wi-Fi password and you are sure you paid your internet bill. But why is your iPhone not connecting to Wi-Fi? Is there something wrong with your router or your iPhone? Is your ISP screwing you over or has someone changed the password behind your back?

All these are possible causes but there’s a lot more than just that. Below are troubleshooting tips to fix your Wi-Fi problem.

How to fix an iPhone that won’t connect to Wi-Fi?

  • Restart your iPhone Hold the sleep/wake button on the top of your phone down until you see the option to slide to power off. Now drag the slider to turn off.

  • Turn Airplane Mode Off Go to Settings, make sure the Airplane Mode is switched off. If this hasn’t done the trick, we recommend that, you perform an iTunes backup of your data before you go any further, just to be safe.

  • Forget Network Go to Settings, General, Wi-Fi, select your Wi-Fi and choose ‘Forget this Network’. Now try finding the Wi-Fi connection again from scratch.

  • Reset iPhone Hold the Sleep/Wake button as well as the Home button down for about 10 seconds, or until you see the Apple logo appear.

  • Update iOS Software Check to see if you have upgraded your iPhone to the latest software setting. Go to Settings, General and select Software Update. At this point, if your iPhone still won’t connect to Wi-Fi you must be getting pretty frustrated. Perhaps it will help to know that we’re all rooting for you. Keep going!

  • Reset Network Settings Go to Settings, and ensure that, Airplane Mode is off. Then open General, Reset and select Reset Network Settings. (It’s important to know that the iPhone will now remove all saved Wi-Fi passwords, Bluetooth pairing records, VPN and APN settings).

  • Reset All Settings Go to Settings, General, Reset and select Reset All Settings. (Please note that if you Reset All Settings on your iPhone, you will not lose any apps but your app settings will be removed).
