How to fix Wi-Fi issues on iPhone 12 and 12 Pro?
You have to consider the most common problems the iPhone 12 or 12 Pro may have when connecting to a Wi-Fi network. Just keep reading and try everything one by one.
Restart the phone
To do this, you need to quickly press the volume up button, then the volume down button (both are located on the left side) and then the on/off button; the latter must be held down for a few seconds until the mobile reboots.
You can also simply turn it off and then turn it on using the traditional way. To do this, you must press and hold the volume down or volume up buttons (either one) and the on/off button simultaneously until you get an option on the screen that is “Slide to turn off”.
Forget the Wi-Fi network and reconnect
If restarting your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro did not work and the connection problem is still there, try to forget the network and then reconnect to it.
What you need to do is go to the mobile phone settings, enter the Wi-Fi section and then select the network to forget. Then click on it again and enter the password.
Restart the router
Maybe the router you are trying to connect to is having trouble. So try rebooting the router by pressing the power button on the router twice, which is usually located on the back of most routers, although some routers have the button located elsewhere, it is always on somewhere easy to access.
Update the router
If the router is the cause of the problem, a firmware update may fix your issues. Manufacturers usually offer updates to their routers periodically and you may have a pending update.
Because there are many router manufacturers, and each has numerous router models, there are no universal steps for updating router firmware. However, the router update section is usually found in the router’s settings, and to access this section, log in with the default username and password provided on the router box. There you need to check if there is a firmware update available and, if so, download it.
Reset your router to factory settings
If at some point you have made any adjustments or settings to your network or router, these modifications may be responsible for your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro not being able to connect to Wi-Fi.
To reset your router, you just need to find the Reset button. Press on it and the router will return to its factory settings.
If you have a VPN app on your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro, disable it. Generally, VPNs are not the source of these kinds of problems. But it never hurts to try.
Factory reset your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro
If none of the options above work for you and your phone still can’t connect to a Wi-Fi network, a factory reset via iTunes may be the solution.
Visit a technical service or an Apple Store
If you do not want to factory reset your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro and the phone still has problems connecting to a Wi-Fi network, ask an expert for help; go to a professional service center or an Apple Store and ask them to check your phone.
