* iPhone 7 not connecting to WiFi. What should I do?

If your iPhone 7 is not connecting to WiFi, there can be multiple possibilities for it to happen ( despite following the above mentioned conventional method ). Here are a few basic troubleshooting steps you may want to check on.

  1. Make sure your WIFi router is functioning. At times, routers may need to be turned off and back to refresh and receive proper signal.
  2. Do check if your WiFi router bill is paid. The router restricts access to the internet if otherwise.
  3. Keep your iPhone 7 in router’s range. If the router is considerably far from the location of your iPhone 7, it may not get the WiFi signal.
  4. Doubly check if the password you provided for the WiFi router is correct. This is an often rookie mistake.
  5. Restart your iPhone 7 and try to connect again.

If none of the above seem to be the problem, it’s advisable to run a check up on your iPhone 7 in a near by Apple service center.
