Not everything you see is true, especially when it comes to the symbols on our phone. Many times, even if our iPhone and iPad show the Wi-Fi connected symbol, the Internet doesn't work in reality. That is, there is no internet access. The phone does not load the pages in the browser and the apps like Instagram, Facebook, etc. But I am unable to show the new data. So what to do in such a strange situation? Do not worry. Just follow the fixes given in the post to fix Wi-Fi connectivity issues on iOS devices.
RESTART YOUR PHONE AND MODEM
If you haven't tried it yet, stop what you are doing and restart your iOS device (iPhone and iPad). While you're at it, restart your router and modem as well. You never know when this tiny fix could save you from this whimsical situation.
ACTIVATE THE AIRPLANE MODE
Airplane mode blocks all network connectivity on a device. Sometimes, turning on Airplane Mode can fix Wi-Fi related issues. To activate airplane mode, open the control center and tap the airplane mode icon to activate it. Wait some time. Then disable it.
FORGET THE WI-FI NETWORK
A simple solution that has proved useful for many users is to reset the Wi-Fi network. Before doing this, make sure you know the Wi-Fi password as you will need to enter it while re-registering it. To do this, follow these steps:
Step 1: open settings and go to Wi-Fi.
Step 2: tap on Wi-Fi and select Forget this network on the next screen.
USE SIMPLE NAME FOR WI-FI
If your Wi-Fi name contains complicated characters, try giving it a simple name. Sometimes, unrecognizable characters in the Wi-Fi name also hinder its operation.
DISABLE WI-FI ASSIST
Wi-Fi Assist is a feature that allows the iOS device to switch to mobile data in case of poor Wi-Fi connections. While the feature is useful, there may be some middle ground for Wi-Fi to work properly. So try turning it off and see the results. Here's how to turn it off:
Step 1: open settings and go to Mobile Data.
Step 2: scroll down and turn off Wi-Fi Assist.
RESET NETWORK SETTINGS
Another useful solution is to reset the network settings. While this won't erase any data, it will restore network connections like Wi-Fi, mobile data, etc. To do this, here's what needs to be done.
Step 1: In Settings, go to General.
Step 2: scroll down and tap Reset followed by Reset Network Settings.
CHECK THE RECENTLY INSTALLED APPS
Have you recently installed an app that is not allowed in your country? Quickly eliminate it and your Wi-Fi should work again.
ENABLE OR DISABLE THE LOCALIZATION SERVICES
Some countries require the activation of location services for the proper functioning of Wi-Fi networks. If it is disabled, turn it on. However, if the setting is already enabled, try turning it off and check if there is any difference with the Wi-Fi. To enable or disable, follow these steps:
Step 1: in your phone Settings, go to Privacy.
Step 2: Tap on Location Services and enable it on the next screen.
Step 3: scroll down and tap System Services. On the next screen, turn on the Wi-Fi network. If it's already enabled, turn it off.
If you are using the VPN through the built-in feature or through an app, try disabling it. Sometimes, even VPNs cut off Wi-Fi connectivity.
CHANGE MODEM SECURITY
Apple suggests using the WPA2 Personal (AES) security type for your modem. However, if your router is old, go with WPA / WPA2 mode. If your modem security is different from these two, change it to one of them. Hopefully, internet access will be reestablished on your iPhone.
USE GOOGLE DNS
By default, all Wi-Fi networks automatically configure DNS. However, sometimes changing it to OpenDNS or Google DNS helps solve internet problems. You should try to do this in this scenario as well. For that, follow these steps:
Step 1: in Settings on your phone, go to Wi-Fi.
2 pass : Tap the Wi-Fi network that is giving you trouble.
3 pass : Tap Configure DNS and select Manual.
Step 4: Delete the entry under DNS servers and enter Google DNS first, for example 188.8.131.52. Then enter 184.108.40.206 by tapping on Add Server. Alternatively, use the OpenDNS values: 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168.
CHECK THE WI-FI PASSWORD
Have you or someone else recently changed the Wi-Fi password? If so, this can also be the problem. You have to forget the Wi-Fi network and then enter the new password.
Finally, if nothing works, reset your modem. That is, you need to start from scratch and re-enter all your details on the Internet. So, before resetting it, check if you have all the information.
