Part 1: Top 8 solutions to fix iPhone that can't connect to Wi-Fi

Method 1: Turn on Wi-Fi, and then go to the Control Center to make sure that your device is not in the Airplane Mode.
Method 2: Check whether the Wi-Fi password is protected. If so, you need to go to Settings > Wi-Fi to see if the Wi-Fi network you are trying to use has a lock icon next to it. If it does, you can request a password from the network owner or seeking an unlocked network instead.
