There is no Wi-Fi icon on the iPhone, and there is no connection

Published:

According to the user comments and complaints I’ve read, some iPhone users are experiencing an odd situation in which their iPhone appears to be connected to Wi-Fi in Settings but there is no wifi icon at the top of the screen representing the active Wi-Fi internet connection because the iPhone is not actually connected to Wi-Fi.

On your iPhone, navigate to Settings > Wi-Fi to check your Wi-Fi status. If you are connected to a wifi network, you will notice the Wi-Fi network to which you are now connected with a blue checkmark to the left directly beneath the Wi-Fi switch.

This signifies that your connection was established successfully. Another indicator of a Wi-Fi connection is the appearance of the Wi-Fi status icon at the top of your screen. This symbol will not appear if you are experiencing this issue. Obviously, this issue will result in your inability to connect to the Internet.

This implies that applications and services that rely on an Internet connection, like Mail, iMessage, Safari, and iCloud, will not operate. This also implies that you cannot access the Internet via an app or a website on your iPhone.

Occasionally, an error message stating “No Internet Connection” will appear in Settings. This issue is distinct from the previous one. This error message is resulting in the disappearance of the wifi icon.

Wi-Fi issues are common on iOS and macOS devices. Stacey and I have written numerous articles on relevant subjects that you may find interesting:

Update

This issue could be the result of a software bug. Perhaps an upgrade or update has already been released that addresses that bug. As a result, updating your iPhone may resolve your Wi-Fi issue.

On your iPhone, touch Settings > General > Software Update and follow the on-screen instructions if an update is available.

Check your router

I was having the same issue. My issue was that the Wi-Fi connection was very weak because I was too far away from my network. I recommend that you be within range of your router and that you are close to it in order to receive a good signal.

The second thing you can do with the router restarts it. Restart your router to check if this resolves the issue.

  • Unplug your router first, followed by your modem, if you have a dedicated modem.
  • Wait a minimum of 30 seconds.
  • Reconnect your modem and then your router.

And finally, after rebooting, you can update the firmware on your router. The procedure for updating may vary. If you are unsure how to accomplish this, you should contact the manufacturer.

Airplane Mode

Another straightforward procedure is to enable and then deactivate Airplane Mode. Navigate to Settings and enable Airplane Mode. Allow a few moments. Then switch it off.

Restart

You may think this is very simplistic, but your iPhone may require a restart to resolve a faulty connection. Restarting your iPhone may resolve any lingering issues.

VPN

Several people who were experiencing the same issue informed me that their VPN was to blame. Disable your VPN if you have one. You can do so by navigating to Settings > VPN and disabling VPN. Again, navigate to Settings. and VPN and delete your VPN profiles. Then reconnect to Wi-Fi.

If this resolves the issue and you still require access to your VPN service, contact the app developer and inform them that their VPN is creating the issue. They may be required to revise their application.

Forget Wi-Fi

Are you experiencing this issue with certain Wi-Fi networks? For instance, if possible (you can do this by visiting a friend’s house or your local library), connect to a different Wi-Fi network.

Is the other Wi-Fi network operational? Is the Wi-Fi sign visible on your screen? If the answer is true, the issue is almost certainly with your network. As mentioned above, you may choose to read the router section. Ascertain that you follow those steps.

Additionally, you may wish to forget about your Wi-Fi network. This can be an effective technique for resolving wireless network issues such as this one. Take the following steps:

Navigate to Settings > Wi-Fi on your iPhone.
After selecting your Wi-Fi network, click the blue information I sign next to its name.
After that, click Forget This Network.
Now restart your iPhone and re-establish network connectivity.

Reset Network Settings

If all else fails, try resetting your network settings. This will clear away your network settings such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. This is easy to do but a bad thing about this option is that your Wi-Fi passwords will be erased.

If you are sure to proceed, go to Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone > Reset then choose Reset Network Settings. Then follow on-screen instructions.
