Why Is My iPhone Internet so Slow? Learn to Make It Faster

How to Fix iPhone Internet that's Very Slow

Wondering why your iPhone Internet is so slow? Does your Wi-Fi say it’s connected but the Internet is not working? Is Safari on your iPhone rather sluggish, making it a terrible browsing experience for you? You need to act fast and end with the slow Internet on your iPhone.

For an iPhone running one of the recent iOS operating systems, the most likely cause for a slow Internet is a network error. This can be easily fixed by restarting your iPhone and, if it still persists, resetting your network settings.

The second most common cause for a slow internet on your iPhone is the connection you're using. You should troubleshoot your connection issues and get faster, more stable connectivity. But this article here will help you save time and get that fixed in a matter of minutes. But first...

iPhone Internet Slow Issues and Solutions to Fix Them

Today's iPhones and any other smartphones for that matter are very much dependent on the internet to work properly. Whether it's updates or apps that sync online, you need a fast and stable connection.

When you have slow internet on your iPhone, you'll notice that apps lag too, as they wait to sync online. This is particularly the case with social media apps like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, etc.

The reasons for iPhone slow internet issues include, but are not limited to:

  • being near the edge of the Wi-Fi signal coverage area
  • connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot that doesn’t work (sticky Wi-Fi)
  • ISP or carrier having temporary technical issues
  • faulty network equipment – router, modem.

Here are some solutions you can try to fix your iPhone slow Internet issues:

  • restart your iPhone
  • get closer to your Wi-Fi router for better coverage
  • connect to another public Wi-Fi hotspot
  • update and disable apps accessing the Internet
  • disable low data mode
  • reset iPhone network settings
  • update your router’s firmware and try different settings

Proven Step to Speeding Up a Slow Internet iPhone: Use Wi-Fi and Cellular at Once

First off - if your ISP / network carrier is experiencing issues, then you should definitely contact them. It's not right to pay to be able to use the Internet and not get to do that.

But, assuming it works and it's sub par to what you're expecting, we have the perfect solution: harnessing the power of both Wi-Fi and cellular data at the same time. As a fast bonding VPN, Speedify allows you to use both your Wi-Fi and cellular connections at once on your iPhone. Remember - that's "at once" and not "switching between them" - here's the difference.

Speedify dynamically sends traffic through both Wi-Fi and cellular depending on each network's performance, to get you the fastest, most stable and secure Internet at any given time. If one of the connections drops (most likely due to connecting to a bad Wi-Fi hotspot), Speedify will move more traffic over cellular. And it's all seamless to you, even when streaming - you won't even know it happened till you check the stats in the app.

Speedify Fixes iPhone Internet Slow Problems and Helps Keep Your Data Private and Bypass Content Restrictions

Speedify uses servers in the cloud and encrypts your traffic to and from those servers. This means that your online activity is safe from hackers and cyber criminals that might be lurking on public Wi-Fi networks for example.

This comes in handy also when the network you're connected to restricts access to certain websites and apps - mostly streaming and social media ones - YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, etc. This is the case for many educational and office networks. The point is that with the traffic being encrypted, you can access those websites freely.

There's another upside to this: you can choose the servers to connect to, including those in other countries. So, if you're abroad or need to access a local resource within a country, connect to a server in the region where access is not blocked and you're all set!

Using Speedify on your iPhone will fix any slow Internet issues and provide peace of mind when using the Internet. Get it now on the App Store!
