All Apple devices have a strong impact among customers, and they know that they can rely on such superior devices. However, as any other product, Apple devices might encounter various problems. As it happened in the past, some users experienced problems with the poor signal, cellular data issues or others.
Moreover, now, users complain about the issue of difficulty experienced when trying to connect the device to a Wi-Fi network, locating a Wi-Fi network or even browsing on one. In case you find yourself in front of such problem and you want to solve it as quickly as possible, you should follow the step-by-step guide posted below, and the Wi-Fi connection problem should be solved.
It is worth mentioning the fact that, first, you need to make sure that the wireless device is on and broadcasting at the right frequency. In the same time, you need to place your iOS device within range of wireless signal. For password-protection wireless routers, you need to know the password in order to proceed with the solution.
Step-by-step Guide to Fix Wi-Fi Issues
1. Go to Settings app, find the Wi-Fi option and toggle if off and on again.
2. When a new window with various Wi-Fi networks appears, connect to the displayed Wi-Fi network, which should appear as checked once it is connected.
3. Click on the small blue arrow and then click on the “forget this network” option.
4. At this point, you need to connect to the respective network once again. If a password is required, enter it. Once you have performed all these steps, check to see if the problem is solved.
5. In case the Wi-Fi error still persists, reboot your iOS device and try to connect once again. If this does not solve the problem, search to see if your wireless band is compatible with the router being used.
However, if all these steps are followed as required, the problem should be solved, and all devices should be connected and browsing the internet.
The second Wi-Fi problem iOS users complain about is when the Wi-Fi settings is grayed out or dim. This means that the Wi-Fi address is missing. In this case, you need to go to Settings, General and tap and About (Missing Wi-Fi address). For this issue, you need to follow the next steps:
1. Check to see if the airplane mode is off. For this, go to Settings and Airplane mode.
2. Now, you need to reset the network settings. Again, visit the Settings app, General, Reset and Reset Network Settings.
3. However, in order to find the result you are looking for, you need to be sure that your device is running the latest operating system version. If you do not know it, and you want to check it out, go to Settings once again, then to General and tap on Software Update. If your device is not running the latest software, you can easily upgrade it.
This should solve your Wi-Fi issue on your iOS device. As a last solution, in case the issue still appears you need to restore your device to factory settings.
