iOS 11 tip: How to fix broken Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular connectivity

One of the most frustrating things to fix on any device is connectivity issues. Maybe it’s that you can’t access Wi-Fi or cellular or Bluetooth from a particular device (and you know it works because your other devices are working fine), or maybe you’re experiencing those super-annoying random connectivity drops or laggy connections that can be so destructive to productivity.

It might be time to nuke your iPhone or iPad’s network settings and start from scratch.

Note that before you do this, carrying out this procedure will wipe your Wi-Fi settings and passwords, Bluetooth device pairings, VPN settings, and cellular settings. While your cellular settings will be reconfigured based on your SIM card and network, you will need to reconnect to Wi-Fi networks (so make sure you have the passwords you need), repair Bluetooth devices, and reconfigure VPN connections. Depending on your setup, this can take a few seconds to, well, a long time, so bear that in mind.

OK, so with those precautions out of the way, here’s how to reset your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular settings.

First, click on Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings:

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

You will then be asked for your device’s pincode or passcode:

​Enter the device's pincode or passcode

Enter the device’s pincode or passcode

Finally, you’re asked to confirm if you want to reset the device’s network settings:

C​onfirm if you want to reset the device's network settings

Confirm if you want to reset the device’s network settings

If you choose to reset the network settings then your device will now reboot and the process is completed. It’s now up to you to reconfigure Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings (which is the time-consuming bit).

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
