These days, a good internet connection is just as important as your iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr signal, right? Nobody used the iPhone for making calls alone and, most of the time that is not spent on phone calls and texting is usually spent on an internet-connected app. That’s why the Wi-Fi signal is an option more debated than ever. And while it’s true that some people are just too picky, there are more instances when the signal could really be stronger. Below, we will introduce you to the most accessible options for your particular situation to make WiFi signal stronger on iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr
The first thing to do when the Wi-Fi signal is poor on iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr?
Clear the cache memory of your device, from the Recovery Mode. The cache memory is that short-term memory where apps store different types of info required for smooth operations and transitions between apps and services. You can delete it anytime you want and nothing wrong will happen to your iPhone, on the contrary!
Wiping the cache partition is often recommended with different problems, the Wi-Fi signal included. If you don’t know how to boot into Recovery Mode and how to wipe the cache of your iPhone, check out this article: How to Clear the Cache – An iPhone Guide. You have all the necessary information in there and you also have us to answer your questions, in case you can think of anything in particular.
The one thing you must check when the Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting
This is a particular situation when the weak Wi-Fi signal is actually leading to sudden interruptions. In case you’ve noticed that the wireless connectivity doesn’t stay in place for too long, and it tends to switch to mobile data before you get the chance to control it… Take a look at the Wi-Fi Assist settings and, if they are still turned On, turn it Off.
The Wi-Fi Assist is designed to select the best connectivity options, in your name. If it considers, for whatever reasons, that you’re better on the Cellular Data than on the local Wi-Fi, it will interrupt your wireless connectivity and do the swap automatically. The problem will occur in this series of sudden changes.
Maybe it doesn’t make much sense to you right now but all you have to do is to navigate to Settings and turn off the Wi-Fi Assist from the Cellular section. You’ll see the difference for yourself. And if you don’t, we still have a long list of 10 other situations that you need to look into!
Top 10 issues to check when trying to make the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr Wi-Fi signal stronger:
- The signal strength;
- The Wi-Fi network;
- The website traffic;
- The network traffic;
- The cache of the internet browser;
- The software version of the internet browser;
- The apps from the background;
- The lack of memory;
- The firmware version;
- The data speed limits.
You probably don’t need assistance, in particular, for every single one of these potential problems. You know that if it’s software related you must run some updates, if it’s the background apps you need to close them, if it’s the lack of memory you need to delete some things, and so on.
What we should emphasize, however, at the end of this tutorial, is that when nothing works, postponing an authorized evaluation is not a good idea. There may be instances when the problem is deeper and only an authorized Apple technician can troubleshoot it. With or without warranty, the Wi-Fi signal must be tackled once and for all. You deserve the full iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr experience, go get it!
