iPhone 15 issue

When Apple releases a new iOS version to coincide with the launch of a new iPhone, it’s not uncommon for users to experience weird bugs.

Thankfully, the company’s developers are generally quick to fix these issues and release a software update.

Unfortunately, even with new iOS updates, the iPhone 15 appears to be plagued with strange problems.

Apparently, some users have now reported new issues with Wi-Fi on iOS17, especially with iPhone 15 models.

People are saying that their apps are unable to load content, or that their connection feels super slow when connected to Wi-Fi.


You’d expect your shiny new iPhone to be super speedy when you’re connected to Wi-Fi.

However, users are saying that despite being connected to Wi-Fi, their iPhone stops loading content in apps like Threads, TikTok, and even Safari.

Sometimes the issue disappears after a few minutes, but on occasion they have to manually disconnect and reconnect the Wi-Fi on their iPhone to get it working again.

The internet is awash with users reporting these issues, most of them with the new iPhone.

For example, a user on the Apple Community forums complained that the Wi-Fi was periodically disconnecting on their iPhone 15 Pro but worked fine with every other device.

Then on X, a user said that “pages load very slowly” when their iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi.

It’s a similar story on Reddit, where one user claims that adjusting the Wi-Fi channel range to 20 MHz, 40 MHz, or 80 Mhz solved the problems.

“I’m connected but from time to time my iPhone won’t get any data, so I put it in flight mode and off again and it works again,” another said.

It’s not entirely clear whether this is a widespread issue or if it’s only affecting a small number of users.

But users are desperately hoping the issues are caused by a software bug and can be fixed with yet another iOS update.
