Do you know this? Your laptop, tablet and other devices work fine in your home Wi-Fi network, but surfing on your iPhone is a test of patience. A simple trick can help. And if that doesn’t work either, atechbook has another somewhat unconventional method for you.
iPhone owners are always struggling with poor WLAN reception. This is particularly bitter in one’s own home. In the worst case, only surfing via mobile data is possible there. The agreed data volume in the cell phone contract then melts away within a very short time. But what can you do if all the other devices get a stable signal without any problems, but not the iPhone? Our simple trick is not new, but if you don’t know it yet, you should definitely try it. It only takes a few seconds and finally gets you a better connection with your iPhone.
3 steps to a better WLAN
The trick works with every iPhone with a reasonably current iOS version.
Step 1: Open the control center
Simply swipe up or down on the home screen (depending on your iPhone) to open the control center.
Step 2: Switch to airplane mode
A tap on the airplane icon in the upper left corner is enough to disconnect all connections and put the device into airplane mode.
Step 3: Activate WLAN
In the last step, activate the WLAN again by pressing the corresponding icon. The iPhone now automatically connects to the WLAN.
What are the consequences of this setting?
In our test, this setting actually not only ensures better WLAN, but also makes it properly usable in our editor’s home network from the iPhone in the first place. Thus, the trick is also indispensable at the moment. What’s particularly interesting is that you can still make phone calls. iPhones do, in fact, offer the option of WLAN telephony.
To do this, simply go to “Settings” -youkuohao_52f27gfH$32J “Cellular” -youkuohao_52f27gfH$32J “Wi-Fi calls” and activate it.
It may be that emergency calls are not possible with some mobile phone providers, for example. For example, O2.
If the WLAN remains poor, then switch to LAN!
If this trick doesn’t really work either, there is a not so practical, but very reliable alternative. You can solve the WLAN problem with an inexpensive adapter. You can read how this works in our text:
