Fixing an iPhone XR that has no Internet after the iOS 13 update

Based on our experience, this problem isn’t really that hard to fix. In fact, you may be able to fix it by doing one or a couple of troubleshooting procedures. With that said, here’s what you should do: 

First solution: Make sure it’s not a network problem

If your iPhone XR is connected to a WiFi network yet it has no internet, the problem could be with your network device. Your router may need to be refreshed and you can do so by rebooting it. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to effectively fix possible network issues: 

  1. Unplug your modem or router from the wall outlet or simply disconnect the power cord from the main unit. 
  2. Leave it without power for a minute or two. 
  3. After that, plug it back into the wall outlet or reconnect the cord.
  4. Wait for the device to become online and then let your phone reconnect to it. 

If your iPhone XR still has no Internet after this, then move on to the next solution.

Second solution: Force Restart your iPhone XR

A forced restart is a simulated battery removal that will refresh the memory as well as reload all applications and services. If this problem is due to a minor firmware glitch, then the forced restart will take care of it. Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Quickly press and release the Volume Up button, and then quickly press and release the Volume Down button. 
  2. The moment you release the volume down button, press and hold the Side or Power key until the Apple logo shows on the screen.

Once your iPhone has successfully rebooted, let it reconnect to the network and see if it still has no internet or if the problem is already fixed.

When ready, follow these steps to reset your iPhone XR that has no internet:
