iOS 17 WiFi Fix: Keeps Dropping, Not Working, Disconnecting Or Running Slow? Here’s What To Do

Looking for iOS 17 WiFi fix? If it keeps dropping, not working, disconnecting, or running slow, here’s what you need to do.

So you’ve been waiting for Apple to release iOS 17 to the public and now that it has, you’ve installed it on your iPhone only to find that you’ve a problem. Your WiFi isn’t working properly, perhaps it keeps disconnecting or it’s just slow. Whatever’s going on, it isn’t right and you’re going to want to find a fix.

If this is something that you’re having to deal with it can be extremely frustrating. Be sure to try these ideas to get things working as they should.

Restart iPhone

The first port of call whenever you’re having issues —try restarting your iPhone and see if that sorts the problem out for you.

Restart Router

It’s of course possible that the issue isn’t with your iPhone but rather your router. If that’s the case, restarting it might be enough to get your WiFi back up and running.

Reset iPhone’s Network Settings

Sometimes the iPhone’s network settings can get themselves into a bit of a mess and resetting them is the only way to fix things.

This will reset all of your WiFi passwords, but it can give things a jolt in the process. Head to Settings > General > Reset and then tap Reset Network Settings. You’ll need to authenticate and then re-sign into your WiFi network, too.

Disable WiFi Assist

Sometimes your iPhone can think that the WiFi connection isn’t strong enough and then fall back to cellular. Try disabling WiFi assist in Settings > Cellular/Mobile and see if matters improve.

Forget WiFi Network

Sometimes simply forgetting the network and reconnecting can be enough. Go to Settings > WiFi and then tap the network in question. Tap Forget This Network and then confirm. Now reconnect to the network and see if you fare any better.

Restore iPhone

This is the nuclear option, but it’s one that might just work if nothing else has. You’ll obviously need to set things up all over again and we’d suggest not restoring from a backup, too. This should definitely be the last option you go for.
