Bluetooth not working on iPhone 11

The advancement in Bluetooth technology has always been fast and so only a few actually encounter Bluetooth issues nowadays. The most common problem about this service is that it won’t pair with an accessory that’s working properly with other devices. Compatibility issue is not a common cause because no manufacturer would want to build a Bluetooth device that won’t work with the most popular devices in the market today, unless of course the maker is targeting a specific clientele.

  2. Delete the current Bluetooth connection and let your iPhone repair with the device. 
  3. Reset the network settings to refresh all wireless services. 
  4. Lastly, if all else fails, a reset will be necessary. 

These solutions have been proven to fix any Bluetooth issues. I hope they work for you, too. 

Cellular data not working on iPhone 

The cellular data can be useful when you’re always on-the-go and want to connect to the Internet. However, some iPhone 11 users have complained that the cellular data on their devices does not work. Some reported that even if it’s enabled, they still can’t connect to the Internet, while others said that their connection drops intermittently or the connection is very slow. If you’re one of the owners of the iPhone 11 with cellular data issues, here’s what you I suggest you do: 

  1. If it’s the first time the problem occurs, force restart your iPhone as it can be due to a glitch. 
  2. Open Settings and go to Cellular, disable Cellular data for a few seconds and re-enable it so that your iPhone can reconnect to the network. 
  3. Reset all the network settings of your iPhone if the problem persists. This is to refresh all the network services on your device. 
  4. A reset will be necessary if the previous procedures failed to fix the problem.
  5. Call your service provided if all else fails as the problem could be with your account.  

One of these solutions should be able to fix this problem. I hope this helps.

WiFi not working on iPhone

Now this can either be pretty minor or really complicated. The problem can only be with your network device or a sign of a serious hardware issue. What you can do is rule out the possibilities that it’s not a problem with your network devices and not an issue with the firmware. Here’s what I suggest you do if WiFi isn’t working on your iPhone 11. 

  1. Reboot your network device such as the router, modem, or both. This will refresh the connection from your network device. 
  2. While waiting for the router to start broadcasting the signal, force restart your iPhone to make sure it’s not just due to a minor glitch. 
  3. Forget the current WiFi connection and let your phone reconnect. This will refresh the connection from your phone. 
  4. Reset the network settings to make sure all services are working fine and to replace the WiFi connections on your phone. 
  5. If nonce of these work, then a factory reset will be necessary. 
  6. After the reset and WiFi is still not working, then it’s time to set up an appointment at the Genius Bar as the problem could be with the hardware. 

One of these solutions should fix the problem as long as it’s not a hardware issue.
