How to Boost Wi-Fi speed on your iPhone

To enjoy the latest gadgets, you need to have a strong internet connection on the devices these days. It is a must-have thing for performing various tasks like watching/streaming movies, downloading large files, having video conference meetings, etc.

But many iPhone users have lately reported that the Wi-Fi speed has been deteriorating on their iPhones and it is creating issues while using different applications.

Therefore, in order to improve the Wi-Fi signal strength on your iPhone/iPad, we have researched a lot of different techniques and explained them using the steps in the article below.

Fix 1 – Restart the Wi-Fi Router and iPhone

Sometimes, the Wi-Fi signal strength gets weak because of the technical glitches that occur within the router device. So to rectify and remove the software bugs within the router, you may have to restart the router once.

After the Wi-Fi router is restarted, it is always a good practice to restart devices like iPhones, PC, iPad, etc. to eliminate the software glitches within the device as well.

Fix 2 – iPhone should be in the Wi-Fi range

It has been noticed many times that when the user moves far away from the Wi-Fi signal range, the internet connection gets weak and sometimes it might even get disconnected from the device. So try to remain within the Wi-Fi range by being in the same room where the Wi-Fi router is present.



Also, if there are any heavy obstacles surrounding the router device and the Wi-Fi signal will get broken or reduced. So ensure the area around the Wi-Fi router is clear from any large objects.

Fix 3 – Forget the Wi-Fi and Rejoin the network again

Step 1: Launch the Settings app on your iPhone first.

Step 2: Afterwards, go to the Wi-Fi option by clicking on it as shown below.

Additional Tips

  1. Update the iPhone – Many iPhone users have claimed that they resolved this issue by updating the iOS software on their iPhones. So we suggest our users also try updating their iPhone software.
  2. Get rid of the thick iPhone case – If the iPhone case cover is very thick, it will obstruct any signals like Wi-Fi signals, mobile network signals, etc. So remove the iPhone case and check whether the issue is fixed. If yes, please replace the iPhone case with the better one.
  3. Replace the Wi-Fi Router – If the Wi-Fi router device is damaged/broken, it can be the reason behind this problem. So if you find that the router is faulty, please discard the existing router and buy a good quality router device.
  4. Contact your Internet service provider – Even after trying these methods above if you are unsuccessful in boosting the Wi-Fi signal, you must try contacting your Internet service provider to check for a better speed plan.
