What to do if the Wi-Fi antenna is broken in iPhone 8 Plus
The availability of connection to the Internet is nowadays perhaps the most important indicator of any smartphone. Most applications on your device work in one way or another with the ability to connect wirelessly to the network. So what if Wi-Fi isn't working on your iPhone 8 Plus?
First of all, you should seek advice from the appropriate specialist who repairs Apple technology. The problem can be complex and caused by a variety of reasons. The renowned Californian brand is renowned for its reliability and quality in both design elements and software. In view of this, the likelihood of a lack of connection to the network due to manufacturing defects is minimized.
Why is Wi-Fi not working on iPhone 8 Plus?
Lack of Wi-Fi connection can be caused by many reasons. The main ones are presented below:
When iOS starts to "glitch", it can affect a variety of functions on your smartphone. And the ability to connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are among them. Restarting the iPhone, as well as resetting or updating the operating system, often helps here.
Water ingress into the housing.
If, after contact with liquid, your Wi-Fi connection stops working, this may be caused by corrosion of the corresponding elements of the motherboard. Also in this case, there is a danger of a short circuit. In such a situation, you should turn off your iPhone as soon as possible, as a short circuit may damage other components of your device.
Antenna or chip breakage due to impact fall.
When your phone falls and hits a hard surface, in addition to damaging the case itself, internal components can also become unusable. Doing so can damage the Wi-Fi antenna, or the chip that is responsible for the wireless connection to the network. These structural parts are difficult to repair and in the overwhelming majority of cases require their complete replacement.
Even such a reputable manufacturer as Apple sometimes sins with manufacturing defects. Although this happens very rarely. Defective parts and assembly errors can also cause malfunction or absence.
IPhone 8 Plus Wi-Fi Antenna Repair?
So, you noticed a weak Wi-Fi signal in the immediate vicinity of the router, or the inability to configure and connect to the network. Standard reboot procedure and
factory reset does not give any result. The problem is probably in the internal components. Only a specialist of the service center will help you to make an accurate diagnosis in the process of in-depth diagnostics.
A special antenna is responsible for the wireless connection function in the iPhone 8 Plus, which receives the Wi-Fi radio signal and sends it to the corresponding chip. The radio signal is transmitted to the network module through a loop. The antenna is a thin metal plate and is very vulnerable to tearing and damage of all kinds. Both mechanical damage and corrosion of the antenna itself or the loop can lead to its failure .
The antenna of the wireless connection is a very sensitive mechanism. If it is damaged, you are unlikely to be able to avoid replacing it. In especially advanced cases, it is required not only to install a new Wi-Fi antenna with a loop, but also to replace the board (microcircuit) responsible for the wireless connection.
It is categorically not recommended to carry out work on removing the faulty antenna and installing it instead of a new spare part. Technically, this is a very complicated procedure, which involves opening the device's case, disconnecting certain cables and antenna cables, and reassembling your device. Disconnecting the ribbon cable from the Wi-Fi module may damage the microcircuit and increase the repair cost for an inexperienced technician.
Actions of such precision require a certain technical base and the availability of special equipment. Otherwise, the replacement process could cause even more damage to your iPhone by damaging adjacent parts.
