Since installing ios7, my iphone 4s will not join my wifii network automatically. I have to Forget my network and rejoin, re-enter password in order to connect. Is Apple going to fix this?


iPhone 4S, iOS 7.0.3

    Apple is not going to fix it, because it is not a problem with iOS 7. It is a problem with your phone or your router.

     

    As a first step reboot your router by removing all power from it for about 15 seconds.

     

    If that doesn't resolve the problem, and if your router still has its default SSID (network name) change it to something unique. (You should do this regardless, because even if it isn't the cause of your current problem it will be some day.)

     

    If that doesn't resolve the problem on the phone go to Settings/General/Reset - Reset network settings.

     

    And if that doesn't resolve it try Settings/General/Reset - Reset all settings

     

    If it is an old router check the router manufacturer's web site for a firmware update.

    Thanks for the reply Lawrence. I had already rebooted my modem/router. So, I decided to try reseting network settings. This seems to have worked. I was able to join my network. Now to see if it will stay joined. Thanks again. Hope this is all I have to do.
