How to Keep a VPN Connection Alive on an iPhone or iPad
Using a VPN is the safest way to connect to the Internet, especially when you are using unfamiliar or public networks. But, increasingly people are connecting to VPNs with their iPhones and iPads instead of their laptops. For many, the iPhone VPN experience is a frustrating one. The connection is always slow, and worst of all often the VPN disconnects from your iPhone or iPad at the most inconvenient times. The problem with the VPN disconnecting from your iPhone / iPad is most likely rooted in the VPN app you are using and not your phone.
Keep reading to see how to quickly fix the VPN disconnect issue on your iPhone or iPad.
iPhone or iPad Loses VPN Connection?
Almost all VPN services work the same way. They rely on a single Internet connection and a single socket with the VPN server to route all the data to and from your device. If anything goes wrong with that socket or with your Internet connection, the VPN is immediately disconnected.
That means a simple fluctuation in your cell signal or a momentary interruption to your Wi-Fi signal and you lose your VPN connection on your iPhone. And then you have to manually reconnect the VPN, which assumes you’re constantly watching your phone to see if the little VPN icon is still there.
Why VPN is Slow and Unstable on Your iPhone or iPad
The primary selling point of a VPN is its security. This is because almost all VPNs slow down your connection speed and provide unstable connections as a function of their design.
Even though your iPhone is capable of connecting to the Internet via cell signal and Wi-Fi at the same time, standard VPN apps do not take advantage of this ability. Instead they clog your bandwidth by first sending all the data to and from your phone through the single socket to the VPN server where the data is encrypted and then route that encrypted data back through the same socket and connection.
Speedify VPN for Mobility Solves VPN Disconnects on iPhones and iPads
Speedify is the only app that can combine multiple internet sources into one bonded super-connection for more stable and secure livestreaming, video calling, and web browsing.
Speedify was designed to solve the VPN disconnect problem and the slow connection issues. Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that actually improves your connection speed and delivers stable, reliable connection every time.
The Speedify protocol uses multiple parallel sockets to connect with the VPN server. The data is rapidly reassembled and encrypted on the server. Speedify also enables channel bonding. This means it uses your iPhone’s Wi-Fi and mobile data connections at the same time.
What you get is increased bandwidth, which allows all of your apps to run faster. Speedify runs in the background of your iPhone proactively monitoring the quality of your connections. It is equipped with auto failover so that if one connection goes down, it routes all the data through the existing connection until the lost connection is restored. All of this activity is automated. You don’t have to do anything, and you most likely won’t even notice anything different is happening.
Speedify is the future of VPN. It provides world-class encryption, without forcing you to sacrifice speed or reliability. Speedify works on all iOS and iPadOS devices starting with iOS 12 and later.
