Forget WiFi and reconnect
When the machine does not recognize the wifi, you can try choosing to forget the password and then reconnecting. This method can also be used when entering the correct WiFi password, but the device reports you entered incorrectly.
Go to Settings, go to WiFi. Tap on a network that you cannot connect to and select Forget this network, then tap to confirm Forgot.

Reset network settings
Resetting the network settings clears cache, clears DHCP settings, and other network-related information. Hence the WiFi problems we encountered will likely be fixed.
To reset the network, go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset network settings.
Turn off VPN
If you have a VPN installed, this could be one of the main reasons affecting your device’s WiFi connection. Try disabling the VPN to see if it solves the problem by: Open Settings> General> VPN. Toggle the shortcut under Status to disconnect from the VPN you set up earlier.
Restart the Router
Sometimes the problem is not with the iPhone but with the Router itself. Try restarting your Router, then connect your iPhone to the WiFi network again to see if the device is connected to the network stable.
Once turned off, you should wait 10 seconds before turning the router back on again to make sure that the power is completely discharged and the memory is cleared. This ensures that previous settings on the Router will be reset.
Firmware upgrade for Router
If rebooting the router doesn’t solve the problem, think about a solution to upgrade the router’s firmware. This not only helps to increase the performance of routers but also eliminates bugs that appear in older versions.
Turn off WiFi network service

The WiFi Assist feature on iOS allows the device to automatically use mobile data when the WiFi connection is poor. However, some users believe that turning this feature off and on again improves some WiFi connection errors.
To disable this feature, open Settings> Cellular> scroll to the bottom to turn WiFi Assist on and off again.
Ask to connect to the network
