The iPhone’s network settings can be reset via the “Reset” option found in the Settings app. All data associated with your iPhone‘s internet connection and networks will be deleted if you reset the network settings. Without resetting your network settings, you may be able to fix internet connectivity problems by turning on and off Airplane Mode, restarting your iPhone, and reconnecting to WiFi.
Many of the iPhone’s services, such as emailing and monitoring the weather, require an active internet connection. It may be required to reset your iPhone’s network settings if you discover that it is unable to connect to the internet, despite appearing to be connected to WiFi or mobile data. To learn how to delete all network information from your iPhone, read on.
What Happens When You Reset Your Network Settings on iPhone
When you reset your iPhone’s network settings, all of your browsing histories, saved passwords, and other information associated with your internet and network connections will be deleted. WiFi network names and passwords, linked Bluetooth devices, cellular network settings, and virtual private network (VPN) configurations are all examples.
Different from a factory reset, which eliminates all of your data, resetting the network settings do not affect any of your saved information. This is common practice when upgrading to a new iPhone through a trade-in. The user’s media files, browsing history, and cell provider details will all be intact after a network reset.
What to Try Before You Reset Your Network Settings
It may take your iPhone up to a minute to restart and reset its network settings. Put in your PIN when you can use the phone again. It is expected that your phone will reconnect to your service provider automatically.
Get in touch with your service provider or Apple if your iPhone isn’t automatically connecting to your mobile network. In the event that you need to reset your network preferences, it is recommended that you first try a few troubleshooting actions.
