Do you have a problem with your iPhone 12 Mini dropping WiFi? Here’s how to fix your iPhone 12 mini’s WiFi connection! We’ll explain why the connection is dropping and how to fix it for good!

If you find that you can’t access WiFi on your iPhone 12 mini, you can quickly get frustrated, especially if you have restricted data, or you don’t want to switch to 5G, 4G or 3G to get a better signal.

How to Fix iPhone 12 Mini Dropping WiFi Connection Issue

If your iPhone 12 mini loses internet connection frequently, there are a few things you can try.

To be on the safe side, make sure you visit a cell phone repair shop before moving on to more complex solutions. Check for simple causes of trouble before moving on to more complicated ones. Let’s take a look at a few settings and steps to see if they are the problem.

Update your iPhone

Sometimes older versions of iOS can contain bugs that updates have since fixed, so it’s important to make sure you’re running the newest iOS version on your iPhone 12 mini. Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your phone to see if a newer version of iOS is available. Then click the Download and Install button.

Configure Your Settings

It might seem obvious, but it’s also worth checking your settings to ensure you haven’t accidentally disabled WiFi or enabled Airplane Mode, as both will prevent you from connecting to a WiFi network. To check the status of your connection, swipe down from the top right corner of the screen. The Airplane Mode icon should be faded out at the top left, and the WiFi icon should be blue below it. You can also access both features from the Settings app. Just scroll to the top of the page to access the controls for each. Moreover, the toggle switch for plane mode should be moved to the left and grey, not green, while the WiFi option should display a network name instead of the word off.

Connect To The Right WiFi Network

Also, verify that the WiFi connection you are using is the correct one. You may have connected to a different network in your area that you may have used previously (you may have connected your iPhone to your printer network!) Switch to the network you intend to use, then follow the instructions below to disconnect from the unwanted network permanently.

Turn off WiFi Assistance

Your iPhone 12 mini may need to be prevented from connecting to 3G or 4G when your WiFi is weak. As part of its WiFi Assist feature that Apple added years ago in iOS 9, if the WiFi connection had a poor signal, it would ‘helpfully’ drop the connection to the 5G, 4G or 3G network instead. Here’s how to turn off WiFi Assist: Go to Settings > Mobile Data and scroll down to the bottom to find it. Make sure it isn’t selected.

It’s Time To Reboot Your iPhone

You can resolve many tech-related issues by restarting your iPhone. This is because it is often the easiest and most effective method of solving technical problems. 

Your Router May Need To Be Rebooted

If your iPhone 12 mini keeps dropping WiFi, the good idea is to turn the router on and off. Turning on your router again after turning it off should take 20-30 seconds. Alternatively, you can unplug your router, wait a few minutes, and then reinstall it. Wait until your router is connected again.

Make Sure It’s Not Your Broadband Provider’s Fault

There is a possibility that resetting or restarting your line won’t fix your issues. For example, you could check whether your internet providers are experiencing an outage. When it’s raining, WiFi often isn’t as good – which could indicate a problem with your connection. Talk to your internet provider about it. We have some slightly more complicated steps below if you are still experiencing problems with your iPhone 12 mini dropping WiFi after trying all these steps.

Make Sure The Signal Is Strong

After checking all of the above, if your iPhone 12 mini continues to lose WiFi, then the problem must be elsewhere. Start by checking your signal strength. At home or in other locations with dead spots, WiFi networks can become unstable. This problem is most prevalent in big, old houses. Click on the WiFi option in the Settings app to get started. 

Check how many of the three lines in the WiFi symbol are black to the right of the network name you wish to use. There should be a strong signal to maintain the connection if all three are filled in, meaning the issue is elsewhere, but if only one line is black, signal strength is low, which could cause the iPhone 12 mini to lose connection. To test for a stronger signal, move to a different room, building, or general area.

Verify The Password

Common problems include incorrect passwords or corrupted passwords. As for the first problem, make sure the password you’re entering is entered correctly in both upper and lower case since WiFi passwords depend on this.


Nevertheless, if your iPhone 12 mini still won’t connect to WiFi after trying all the steps above, then there may be a technical fault with the device itself. So, it might be worth booking an appointment at the iPhone repair shop where the technicians can take a look. For more information, you can contact us.
