Go into Settings > Wi-Fi > Select your connection > and Tap Forget this Network at the top of the screen. Reconnect if you can and check for problems.
If you’re still noticing issues, head into Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will cause your device to forget saved passwords so, like we said, have those handy.
