Troubleshooting internet very slow issue after iOS 13.2 on iPhone X device

A phone that has been dominated by random software glitches and iOS bugs after iOS update will obviously deter its smooth performance and eventually lead phone’s functions to fail. The underlying cause can be either with the internet source which is the router/modem or with the iOS device itself. If you are ready, read on and start fixing very slow internet on your iOS 13.2 iPhone X.

First solution: Restart (power cycle) wireless modem/router.

Before troubleshooting your iOS device to fix the very slow internet issue, let us first troubleshoot the internet source. To do so, simply power-cycle the modem/router to clear out firmware glitches and refresh the router’s system. Here is how:

  1. On your router, push or flip the Power button to shut down the equipment.
  2. While the router is off, unplug the AC adapter from the power source/outlet for at least 1 minute.
  3. After the elapsed time, plug the AC adapter back into the outlet and then push the Power button again to turn the router back on.

Wait for the signal indicator to become stable and once your router is back online, check if your iPhone X is already having a good internet connection. If you have other connected devices, you may check them as well to make sure that your router/modem is providing stable internet connection. If all of your devices are still having very slow internet connection, try to update your router’s firmware. To do so, refer to your router’s manual. On the other hand, if the very slow internet issue only persists on your iPhone X, then it’s time to troubleshoot your iOS device.

Second solution: Restart your iPhone X device to fix very slow internet after iOS 13.2. (soft/hard reset)

Slow internet connection can be inflicted by cache files from corrupted apps and minor software glitches. To eliminate such triggers, restart your iPhone X device. Here are the steps:

  1. Press and hold the Side/Power button and either Volume button simultaneously.
  2. Release both buttons when the Slide to Power Off command appears, and then drag the power off slider to the right for a complete device shut down.
  3. After 30 seconds, press and hold the Side/Power button again until the Apple logo appears.

Alternatively, you can also perform a hard reset or also known as forced restart on your iOS device. Doing so will force close all the running background apps that have gone rouge after iOS 13.2 implementation, and may have interfered your phone’s wireless system. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Press and then quickly release the Volume Up button.
  2. Press and then quickly release the Volume Down button.
  3. Finally, press and hold the Side/Power button until the Apple logo appears.

Once your phone is completely back on, head to Setting->Wi-Fi and connect your phone to the available wireless network. If it is still having a very slow internet connection, try the next possible solution.

Third solution: Refresh Wi-Fi internet connection on your iPhone X device.

Random wireless connectivity issues can be cleared out by refreshing your phone’s wireless system. Simply turn the Wi-Fi off and on again. Doing so will also eliminate random Wi-Fi errors that are causing the internet service to become very slow. Here’s how to refresh your Wi-Fi internet connection:

  1. From Home, go to Settings.
  2. Select Wi-Fi and then toggle the switch off and on again.

Alternatively, you can also utilize the Airplane Mode trick to refresh your phone’s wireless internet connection and the rest of the wireless services. This can be done on the Control Center or via menu settings. To carry the steps out via menu settings, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings from Home.
  2. Select Airplane Mode.
  3. Toggle the switch to enable the feature. Doing so will disable your phone’s wireless radios including Wi-Fi.
  4. While Airplane Mode is on, reboot (soft reset) your iPhone X.
  5. Then head back to Settings->Wi-Fi menu and tap the switch to disable the feature. By then, all your wireless services will be resumed.

Once your iPhone X re-established cellular and network connections, connect to the available wireless network. Then open your browser or any online apps to check if the internet service has improved. If the internet connection remains very slow, proceed to the next troubleshooting guide.

Fourth solution: Forget/delete Wi-Fi network and then reconnect.

Wi-Fi network that has been corrupted after iOS 13.2 implementation will surely offer unstable internet connection. To rule this out, delete the problematic network from your phone’s system then reconnect. Here’s what needs to be done:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen.
