Why Does My iPhone Keep Disconnecting from Wi-Fi?

There isn't a single cause for this. Whether it's an older iPhone or the latest iPhone 12 Pro, they are sometimes prone to dropping the Wi-Fi connection and, hence, you going offline. Here are the main causes:

  • a software-related issue within iOS - settings, connectivity glitches, etc.
  • a problem with the router / Wi-Fi hotspot
  • network infrastructure issues with the ISP

Whatever the case, there are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this disconnect problem - see below.

Troubleshooting an iPhone That Keeps Disconnecting from Wi-Fi

Here is what you can try to solve your iPhone Wi-Fi connectivity issues on your iPhone:

  1. Make sure you're within range of the Wi-Fi network you're connecting to. If you take even a few steps in one direction, that could affect the wireless signal strength to the extent of dropping the connection altogether. You might consider getting some Wi-Fi repeaters or using your PC as a repeater.
  2. Try to connect to another public Wi-Fi network. Sometimes your iPhone stumbles upon those sticky Wi-Fi networks that don't work. You need to keep away from those.
  3. Turn Wi-Fi off and back on on your iPhone.
  4. Forget the Wi-Fi network and reconnect to it. Your iPhone saves info about how to join a Wi-Fi network as well, when you connect to it initially. When this changes, issues such as iPhone disconnecting may appear.
  5. Restart your iPhone and the Wi-Fi router. If you're connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot, then... see if you can get the owners to restart it.
  6. Reset network settings on your iPhone. This also resets Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN and APN settings that you’ve used before.

But let's step back a little - what is the purpose of you wanting to avoid the situation where your iPhone disconnects from Wi-Fi? Continuous connectivity, of course - not getting your streaming video or audio interrupted. This happens when your iPhone switches from Wi-Fi to cellular and then back, when Wi-Fi's connected again. In order to avoid that, you need a solution that can use both your Wi-Fi and cellular connections at the same time - a channel bonding service. You need Speedify.

Use all of your connections at the same time
