How To Fix Apple iPhone X/iPhone 10 Slow Wi-Fi Problems

A slow Wi-Fi is bad news, especially since most of us use the iPhone X/iPhone 10 with an internet connection. When you don’t have the internet, it’s like you don’t have much left to do on your smartphone. At the same time, when you’re forced to navigate on your Cellular Data alone, again, it’s not that fun. You’re stressed all the time, concerned that you might end up with extra costs on your subscription plan.

 

But what are you supposed to do when using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and other social media channels is becoming a real pain? Well, if you’re tired of looking at broken images or pages that don’t want to load but you don’t feel like spending all your mobile data either…

 

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Should I try a general solution? You have the Recovery Mode to run a factory reset in there…
  2. Should I check the Wi-Fi connectivity details? You can use the Forget option and then manually connect to that network once again…
  3. Should I check the modem or the router? You could start with a simple reset of that device…
  4. Should I check the connectivity options on my iPhone? You could access the Settings and switch from DHCP to Static…
  5. Should I check the DNS settings? Why don’t you just directly switch it to Google’s Addresses…?
  6. Should I check the router’s bandwidth settings? It would be awesome if you could tweak that and also the Broadcast Channel…

 

Say you’ve been through these questions and tried our suggestions? You’re only left with the option of completely disabling the security settings on the Modem or Router (not necessarily a solution you’d like to stick to!) or upgrade your subscription, in case that the provider confirms it will help with your current problem.

Other than that, the slow Wi-Fi on the iPhone X/iPhone 10 can also be handled from a more general perspective. If you know how to boot into Recovery Mode, it cannot hurt to follow the steps of how to wipe the cache on iPhone X/iPhone 10.

 

With a fresh cache memory, if the device is still having a lousy wireless connection, you can try to clear some app data. From the General settings menu, at the Storage & iCloud Usage submenu, you will get to the Manage Storage option. Select that one, followed by Documents and Data, and use the Edit and the Delete All options. If you think there’s no need to clear all the app’s data, suffices to make your selections manually. In that case, you can swipe left only on the items you wish to remove and use the Delete option individually.

Do all that and let’s see how it goes. If the slow Wi-Fi persists on your iPhone X/iPhone 10, maybe a technician will have a more specialized opinion and solution to offer you?
