Post-iOS 7 issues can be disastrous. For many, iMessage issues are still creating a lot of havoc. For some, issues with battery are plaguing the user experience. And for a few of us, there’s the Wi-fi issue.

If the Wi-fi is not working on your iDevice right after iOS7 upgrade, things can go real bad. If you depend on Wi-fi for app upgrades, iCloud sync and pretty much everything else, it can be really frustrating.

Here are some of things you can try to fix Wi-fi issues after an iOS 7 upgrade.

How to Fix iOS 7 Wifi Issues

The Airplane Mode Fix

  • Go to Settings
  • Turn on the Airplane Mode
  • Now, go to General → Reset
  • Tap on Reset Network Settings
  • Tap on “Reset” to confirm the process

When the reset is up, you should restart your router. After this, turn OFF Airplane Mode and check to see if the Wifi is working fine on your iPhone/iPad.

What WiFi Does Not Work Even After This?

The previous fix is tooted as a popular method to get Wifi working again but there’s a chance that it doesn’t fix the issue for you. In that case, you can try a few of these things:

#1. Reset Router Settings: You can try resetting the Wi-fi router so that it clears itself up and beams Wi-fi again.
#2. Forget This Network and Login Again: In Settings → Wifi → tap on the “i” icon on the connected Wifi (which apparently is not working). Tap on Forget this Network to delete it off the list. Turn off Wifi and then turn it back on. When the iPhone picks the Wi-fi signal, re-authenticate the Wi-fi connectivity. Check if Wi-fi works now.
#3. Reset Everything: You might also want to reset all (Settings → General → Reset → Reset All Settings).
