1 Answer


Restart the iPhone 7.

Glitches occur frequently, and iPhones are no exception. The majority of the time, these issues are small and are caused by services that have crashed or ceased performing. Rebooting your iPhone and seeing whether it can connect to your home Wi-Fi after that is the best and safest line of action. If the answer is still no, carry on with your troubleshooting.

  • Press and hold the power button on your iPhone until the slide to power off shows. Wait for your iPhone to turn off by sliding your finger over the screen. It may take up to 15 seconds for your iPhone to turn off. After that, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo displays on the screen.

delete any Wi-Fi networks that your iPhone 7 is currently linked to.
