Solution 5: Forget Wi-Fi

You may want to forget your Wi-Fi network and then reconnect. When you forget a Wi-Fi network, your phone will no longer automatically connect to it until you, next time, enter its password and connect again. And if you are using iCloud Keychain, your other devices using iCloud Keychain will not join this network again. Here is how:

  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Wi-Fi.
  2. Find the wireless network you want to forget and tap the (i) info icon next to it.
  3. Tap Forget This Network.
  4. A pop-up message will appear to confirm your decision. Tap Forget again.

We recommend that you restart your device. And then:

  1. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi.
  2. Tap the name of your Wi-Fi network that you just forgot.
  3. Enter the Wi-Fi password. And connect again to see if Siri is working again.

Solution 6: Reset network settings

Reset network settings, if you are still having this issue. This may help you fix your problem because your network settings could have become corrupted. When you reset your network settings, your Wi-Fi passwords and other connection settings will be erased. Your apps, content or other data will not be deleted. Here is how:

  1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
  2. You may need to enter your passcode. Enter it if asked.
  3. Your phone will restart.

Solution7: Disable VPN

If you have enabled via the Settings app or a VPN app, then try to disable VPN to see if it resolves the issue. You can disable VPN via the Settings app and navigate to the VPN settings to disable the Status toggle from Connected to Not Connected. If you are not able to disable it then launch the VPN app to disable VPN temporarily to figure out if it resolves “Uh oh, something’s wrong. Could you try again?”

If you are still having issues after you’ve tried all of the above tips, there are two things left to do:

  • Call your internet provider to ensure that there are no problems on their end. If you are having this issue on all of your devices, this can be the reason. Contact them and explain that you’re having Internet Issues.
  • Contact Apple, you may be having a hardware problem. Apple can diagnose and repair it. For hardware repairs, you can mail your product to an Apple Repair Center or take it to an Apple Store if you make a Genius Bar appointment. If your device needs a repair, it may be covered under warranty: Apple’s standard warranty or AppleCare warranty.

  1. tried everything but this problem is still there. i do not understand i never ever had this problem and now it looks siri just does not have a connection. looks like they blocked by account on apples site. everything else is working. it al started happening 2 days ago. maybee the russians are hacking into apples servers

    • I have totally same problem. I saw it a week ago. Maybe it started more before, as I’m not using siri that much I could not realize it 😢

  2. This is ridiculous! Using iOS 16 Beta… Have not had this problem until today. Any time I try to use “Hey Siri” she automatically replies with “sorry somehting went wrong” or will say “hold on,” … “still working on it,” …. “sorry something went wrong. please try again later.” Does not work at all for anything. Somehow Siri has become completely useles… WTF?
