Many people own iPhone with pride, but it has its own share of issues. Sometimes users report they are unable to connect to WiFi, or Microphone not working, Some others struggling with iPhone Unresponsive Screen, Apps Crashes Without Warning and more, Here’s a roundup of the most common iPhone problems and how to fix them.
Unable to Connect to WiFi
Go to the iPhone’s control center and tap the WiFi button to put it off. You would be disconnected from all WiFi networks. Wait for a few seconds and then turn the WiFi on. If this doesn’t work, instead of switching the WiFi off, you can try the same with airplane mode.
If you still can’t connect to the WiFi, try restarting your iPhone by pressing and holding the power button and home button till the Apple logo appears. Once rebooted, your iPhone should be able to connect to WiFi. If even at this stage, you are not able to connect, go to Settings – Select the icon of the network you are trying to connect – Scroll down and then set the HTTP Proxy to auto.
