How to Fix iPhone 12 mini Wi-Fi Problems

If you are experiencing problems such as: Wi-Fi not working, not being able to connect to a Wi-Fi network, Wi-Fi connection keeps dropping off intermittently or WiFi speed being extremely slow, here are some things you can try before getting in contact with customer service.

Before you start fiddling with your iPhone 12’s settings, you’ll want to investigate the Wi-Fi connection giving you problems. If you’re on your home Wi-Fi network, try unplugging the router for minute before plugging it back in.

If you’re positive it’s not the router, you might want to check Down Detector and see if others with the same ISP are having similar issues in your area.

If you can’t access the router your iPhone is connected to or if you’re positive the issue has nothing to do with your ISP/router, head into your iPhone 12 mini’s Settings app.

Once you’re in here, you’ll want to forget the Wi-Fi network you’re having issues with. Here’s how to do that:

  • Go to Settings and tap Wi-Fi.
  • Select your connection by tapping the “i” in the circle.
  • Tap Forget this Network at the top of the screen. (Note: This will cause your iPhone to forget the Wi-Fi password so you’ll want to have that handy.)

If this doesn’t fix your iPhone 12 mini Wi-Fi issues, try resetting your iPhone’s network settings:

  • Start the Settings app.
  • Go to General.
  • Tap Reset
  • Tap on Reset Network Settings.

iPhone 12 mini Bluetooth issues

Here are the most common bluetooth issues on iPhone 12 mini:

How to Fix iPhone 12 mini Bluetooth Problems

If your device is unable to connect to one or more of your Bluetooth devices, there are a few steps to take.

The very first thing you’ll want to do is forget the Bluetooth connection that’s giving you issues. Here’s how to do that:

  • Start the Settings app.
  • Tap Bluetooth.
  • Tap the “i” info icon next to the bluetooth Device you want to forget
  • Tap “Forget this Device”.
  • Try reconnecting to the Bluetooth device.

If that doesn’t work, you should try resetting your Network Settings:

  • Start the Settings app.
  • Go to General.
  • Tap Reset.
  • Tap Reset Network Settings.

This process will take a few seconds to complete. It will also cause your iPhone to forget known Wi-Fi networks so make sure you’ve got your password(s) handy.

You can also try resetting your device’s settings back to their factory defaults though this should only be done as a last resort. Here’s how to do that:

  • Start the Settings app.
  • Go to General.
  • Tap Reset.
  • Tap Reset All Settings.

If none of those fixes work, you might have to contact Apple’s customer service or, if it’s not an Apple product, the company that makes the Bluetooth product you’re trying to connect to.

How to Fix iPhone 12 mini Cellular Data Problems

If your iPhone 12 mini suddenly displays a “No Service” symbol and you can’t connect to your cellular network, here are a few steps to take.

First, make sure there isn’t an outage in your area. Check social media for reports and/or get into contact with your service provider on social media. You can also check Down Detector and see if others in your area are having similar issues.

If you determine the issue is unrelated to a network outage, you’ll want to restart your iPhone and see if that fixes the issue.

If that doesn’t work, try turning Airplane Mode on for 30 seconds before turning it off.

If you still can’t get it to work, you’ll want to try shutting off Cellular Data completely. To do that, here’s what you need to do:

  • Start the Settings app.
  • Tap Cellular.
  • Toggle Cellular Data to off.
