    Since iPhone 6 finally hit the markets, certain issues have been reported, such as IPhone Head Phone error. As any other phone, the iPhone 6 has its own bugs, and the problem with Wi-Fi connection is one of them. In this article, you will find 5 ways to fix iPhone 6 not connecting to Wi-Fi.

    People complained about an unstable Wi-Fi connection or the fact they were not able to connect to Wi-Fi network at all. If you experienced one of those issues, before you replace your router or take your device to the Apple store as the ultimate solution, there are several things you may want to try out first.

    5 ways to fix iPhone 6 not connecting to Wi-Fi

    Solution No.1: Toggle Wi-Fi and Airplane mode
    Let's start with the simplest things. First, go to Settings, turn off Wi-Fi and turn it back on. If this trick doesn't work, go to Settings, turn the Airplane mode on, wait a few seconds and turn it back off.

    Solution No. 2: Restart your iPhone
    Press and hold the sleep/wake button and drag the slider to turn your phone off. Once it is off, press and hold the sleep/wake button to turn it back on.

    Solution No.3: Forget the Wi-Fi network and join it again
    This solution is also a really simple one. You need to forget your Wi-Fi network and then join that network again. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi, and tap on the (i) button right next to the name of your network. Tap Forget this network and in the new window tap Forget.

    After this, find your Wi-Fi network on the list of networks and join it again.

    Solution No. 4: Turn off Wi-Fi networking
    Turning off Wi-Fi networking can fix the issue. Here is what you need to do:

    • Navigate to Settings
    • Tap Privacy
    • Tap Location Services
    • Choose System Services
    • Move the switch next to Wi-Fi networking

    Solution No. 5: Reset networking settings
    To reset network settings, do the following:

    • Go to Settings
    • Tap General
    • Tap Reset
    • Tap Reset network settings
    What else?
    In most cases, one of the solutions listed above will fix the Wi-Fi issues. Here are a few other things that you can do.

    Renew lease
    With this option, you will get a new IP address from your router and hopefully, you will be able to connect to a Wi-Fi network and the connection won't drop anymore. To do this go to Settings > Wi-Fi, find your Wi-Fi network and then tap on (i) right next to the network. Tap Renew Lease.

    Restart your router and update its firmware
    Unplug your router, wait for a couple of seconds and plug it back in. Visit the website of the router's manufacturer and see if there is a firmware update.

    Reset all settings
    To reset all settings, follow these steps:

    • Navigate to Settings
    • Tap General
    • Tap Reset
    • Tap Reset all settings
    Your data won't be deleted.

    Erase all content and settings
    Unlike the previous solution that resets the settings of your phone, this will not do just that, it will also delete your data so before you proceed, make sure to backup all your files.

    • Go to Settings
    • Tap General
    • Tap Reset
    • Tap Erase all content and settings
    • In a new window tap Erase iPhone
    • Wait until it is completed and follow the on-screen steps to set up your device as new.
