When you cannot connect to wi-fi on your phone it not only causes you to experience the internet at a slower rate, but also costs you money! With unlimited data plans being gobbled back up by wireless companies whenever possible, it’s super important that you connect to wi-fi as much as you can to avoid overage charges. That’s why when your iPhone 6 won’t connect to your home or work wi-fi, it makes you pull out your hair.
We’ve scoured the internet and came up with some solutions to ease the pain for you.
Fix iPhone 6 Won’t Connect To Wi-Fi
1. Turn Off Wi-Fi Networking
Click on Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> System Service. From this point you should be able to turn off your Wi-Fi Networking. Your phone will reboot. Many users have reported that turning off wi-fi networking actually fixes their problem. You can always turn it back on so don’t worry.
2. Reset Network Settings
Click on Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings. This is a very simple process and will only take a few minutes. After you have reset the network settings you should reboot your iPhone 6. You can do this by holding down the sleep/wake button for about 5 seconds, and swipe when it tells you to. To turn the phone back on just hold the sleep/wake button until it powers up.
3. Update Your iOS to the Latest Version
This seems to help many users. I won’t waste time explaining how here because apple provides a very good tutorial. Update the iOS software on your iPhone.
4. Try Connecting To Wi-Fi From a Different Device
This might seem like a no-brainer, however we all make mistakes. Try connecting to Wi-Fi from a different device to ensure that you are using the correct password / connecting to the right network / router is actually working.
5. Factory Reset.
As a last option I’ll present the good old factory reset. Before doing a factory reset on your iPhone 6, backup your data preferably with iCloud. After this has been complete, tap on Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase all Content and Settings. You will be prompted for your passcode if you have one. Confirm your reset by tapping “Erase iPhone”. This process can take minutes to over an hour, during this time your iPhone 6 will not be able to be used. Once this is complete, your phone will be like new. If you backed up using iCloud the restore should be pretty painless as it has a restore option.
As always if none of these solutions worked for you, please visit your apple store. Or you can always throw your apple phone on the ground as hard as you can and go get a samsung
