Users of iOS 17 are facing Wi-Fi problems, not limited to iPhone 15 but extending to older devices as well.
This issue emerges after Apple's recent fix for iPhone 15 overheating concerns via the iOS 17.0.3 update.
Complaints revolve around sluggish web content loading and sudden disconnections from Wi-Fi networks.
Temporary fixes such as toggling Airplane mode or disabling and re-enabling Wi-Fi offer only brief relief.
A few have tweaked Wi-Fi settings in an attempt to stabilize connections. Some claim to have experienced these issues even before iOS 17, though these reports remain unverified.
Surprisingly, Wi-Fi issues aren't exclusive to iPhone 15 models. Users with older iPhones have encountered similar issues post iOS 17 update.
Strangely, other devices in the same network, like Macs, remain unaffected.
The problem likely stems from another bug, with a fix anticipated in the upcoming iOS 17.1 update.
How to solve this issue
For those affected, a basic troubleshooting step is to remove and re-add your Wi-Fi connection: Open Settings, tap Wi-Fi, select your network, and choose "Forget This Network."
Reconnect by tapping the network name and entering the password. While this may not guarantee a solution, it's a simple step to try when facing network issues.
