Upgrading to the iOS 10 comes at a cost, and we have been examining these costs on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users and proffering solutions to reverse these issues and make test-running the iOS 10 more seamless and enjoyable. Being an early adopter is so much fun. In this post, we will be looking at solving errors related to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cable not working and so many others.
There have been loads of complaints from users of the iOS 10 about broken Wi-Fi. This doesn’t come as a surprise at all, as Wi-Fi issues is a regular feature when iOS upgrades are concerned. Fortunately, we have compiled fixes that have worked and will help you offset your Wi-Fi troubles.
1 Reset Your Network Settings
Network reset is a proven fix for many iOS 10 problems with Wi-Fi inclusive. To do this, tap Settings > tap General > tap Reset > tap “Reset Network Settings”. After this is done, all Wi-Fi passwords are forgotten. Try copying the password before resetting to avoid not having access to your network.
2 Forget Your Wi-Fi Networks
If the aforementioned solution doesn’t work, try forgetting all your Wi-Fi networks. This is a sort of rebooting and refreshing that can eliminate glitches related to Wi-Fi. Do this by, tap Settings > select Wi-Fi > select the connection you’re having challenges with > tap “Forget this Network”. Attempt reconnection.
If the above fixes don’t work, check if you still have a plan with your data provider. If that also doesn’t fix this, try disconnecting your router for some minutes. Reconnect it, and hopefully your Wi-Fi issue is fixed.
It would have come as a surprise if Bluetooth problems were not affecting users, as it is a common problem after iOS upgrades on many devices. This might be a little tricky because your problem might be isolated to connecting to a particular Bluetooth device. However, here are some tips to fix Bluetooth issues:
1 Network Reset
We’ve already talked about how to reset your device. For easy reference however, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This removes all knowledge of any Bluetooth device on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch. You can attempt to reestablish connection with the Bluetooth device once more.
2 Forget Bluetooth Connection
If resetting your network doesn’t work, try making your device forget the particular Bluetooth connection. To achieve this, select Settings > Bluetooth > Select the connection you want to forget by tapping the “i” icon > select “Forget this Device”.
3 Reset All Settings
A last resort can be to reset all settings if the two solutions highlighted above fails. To do this, tap Settings > select General > tap Reset > tap “Reset All Settings”. This wipes off any know settings including networks, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc. Therefore, make sure your Wi-Fi password is available.
Charger Or Cable Won’t Work
How annoying can it be to have your charger not working? I assume very much! No one will like to be with their running on low power, but that’s exactly the problem a “Cable won’t work” presents to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users. It sometimes manifest as “Accessory not Supported”…either ways, it is pretty annoying. To fix this, try the following steps:
1When Your Device Won’t Charge
- The first thing you should do is to check if your cable is damaged. Watch out for signs of breakage on the cable and check for discontinuous prongs too.
- If you’re charging through the wall power outlet, try another outlet to make sure it’s not the outlet
- Try to remove dirt off of your cable pins as well as from your charging port and test to see if it works
- Perform a hard reset of your device to see if this eliminates the problem
After all these have been tried, plug in your device to a power source and wait for about an hour. If it doesn’t charge after this, then take it to an Apple authorized service provider.
2Accessory Not Supported Issue
There are different reasons why this error might be showing when you plug in your device. They are:
- There might be debris on your charging port or the pin of your charging accessory.
- If you purchased a charger that isn’t authorized by Apple.
- Your accessories – cable or charger might be damaged.
To troubleshoot this, do the following:
- Clear dirt and debris from your charging port.
- Perform a hard reset by holding the home and sleep/wake button for approximately 10 seconds till the Apple logo comes on.
- Try using other charging accessories and other charging ports or outlets.
- If all else fails, contact Apple Support.
