If you have an Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you may have experienced difficulty with your WiFi connection, such as slow WiFi or a weak connection. An example of slow WiFi on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus would be the case when you use an app like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, or Whatsapp, and many of the pictures either show the gray loading box for a very long time or never load at all. In this article, I will give you some suggestions on how to improve your WiFi connection so that you have good WiFi for your Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
It’s possible that the problem is with your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus itself. One possible “quick fix”: wipe the cache partition. This method deletes no data from the phone, but clears out the application cache for all your apps. All your data is safe. Read this guide to learn how to clear iPhone 7 phone cache .
If the problem is with your phone but clearing the cache didn’t help, you might have to factory reset your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Read this guide to learn how to factory reset your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus .
Hopefully the problem isn’t with your phone, however. You might try instructing your iPhone to “forget” the WiFi network it is on, then scan for all available networks, and connect to the strongest WiFi network available. You can even try reconnecting to the original network; sometimes a disconnect and reconnect will fix issues.
Other things to try on your phone:
- Switching from DHCP to Static Connection on Phone
- Switching DNS to Google’s Addresses on Phone
If you control or have access to the WiFi network itself, there are things you can do to try to boost your signal:
- Resetting the Modem/Router
- Changing the Router Bandwidth Settings
- Changing the Router’s Broadcast Channel
- Adjusting the Modem/Router Security Settings and even Disabling Security
- Calling your ISP and upgrading to a Higher Bandwidth/Speed
