If you’re trying to connect to WiFi and suddenly find your WiFi toggle greyed out, then this is due to a software issue and usually happens suddenly or after performing a software update. Here are some simple steps you can perform to try to fix the problem:

    • The easiest way to deal with network connectivity problems like a greyed out WiFi switch is to place your phone on airplane mode. To do that: 
      • Access Settings from the Home screen. 
      • Check Airplane mode. If toggle is currently turned on, tap on it to switch it off. If not, tap the toggle to turn it on.
      • While the Airplane mode is enabled, perform a soft reset on your device. 
      • Wait for your phone to go back online after the reset then access Settings > Airplane mode. Tap the switch to disable the feature.
    • The second step is to Reset your network settings, as this will also reset all Wifi connections in your iPhone
      • Go to Settings > General and then tap on Reset.
      • Select Reset Network Settings. You will then see the Apple logo and your phone will restart.
    • Once your phone is back on, go into Settings > WiFi and try to connect to your WiFi network and enter the password.
    • If your WiFi button is still grey, go into Settings > General > Software Update and make sure your device is up to date.
    • If your iPhone is up-to-date and you’re still unable to turn your Wifi on or off, then the next step is to perform a full backup and restore of your device. For a detailed guide on how to backup and restore your iPhone click here.

      • Tap General.
      • Scroll down to and then select Reset
      • Tap the Erase all contents and settings option.
      • Enter your device passcode once prompted.
      • Then tap to confirm all settings reset.
  • If all the steps above did not work, your last option is to take your iPhone to an Apple Technician. This might be a hardware problem with the WiFi receptor that’s causing the issue.
