    Anybody ever have the WiFi on there iPhone 8 just disconnect and show LTE instead? Even though when I go into settings it still says connected to my router and WiFi is on. but only lte shows up. I’m sitting next to my router when this happens. And it’s not just at home. It happens at work and my gym as well. If I turn off WiFi and back on , it reconnects fine. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    When, it happens, before you fix the problem, check the strength of you WiFi signal. If it becomes weak, the iPhone will switch to LTE u til it gets a stronger WIFI signal.

    Na, definitely not true. My LTE at work is 20x faster than my work wifi (literally), but my phone will stay connected to wifi and use wifi over LTE until wifi signal becomes weak.

    It’s not the speed, it’s the strength of signal
