It is possible for you to wirelessly share iPhone password with friends and families, which makes it much easier for them to access your WiFi network if you don’t exactly remember the password. But like all other Apple features, this one can fail to work sometimes. If your iPhone is not sharing Wi-Fi password and you don’t know what to do, this article offers you several effective ways to overcome this problem. Read on to learn 7 troubleshooting tips to fix WiFi password sharing not working on iPhone 12, iPhone 11/11 Pro, iPhone XS/XS Max/XR, iPhone 8/7/6s/6, iPad Pro, etc.
Tip 1: Restart Your iPhone
Like most other iPhone issues, this one can be caused by small software glitches and settings conflicts. The good news is that these issues can be easily removed from the iPhone by simply restarting the device. To turn off the iPhone, press and hold the power button until the “slide to power off” shows up on the screen. Swipe to power off the device and then wait at least a minute before pressing the power button again to turn on the device.
Tip 2: Turn Wi-Fi Off and Then Back On
This problem can also occur when there is a problem with the Wi-Fi network whose password you are trying to share. Turning off Wi-Fi and then turning it back on can reduce these connectivity errors, allowing you to send the password.
To turn off the Wi-Fi on your iPhone, go to the Settings > Wi-Fi and then tap on the switch next to it. Wait about a minute before turning it back on again.
Tip 3: Ensure Both iDevices Are Close to Each Other
Wi-Fi password sharing will only work if the device is close to another one. If they are too far apart, consider holding the devices much closer to each other, just to reduce the possibility that the devices are out of range.
Tip 4: Ensure Both iDevices Are Up To Date
All iOS devices that you are trying to share the Wi-Fi password with should be running iOS 11 or later. To check if the device is up to date, go to Settings > Genera > Software Update. If the device is up to date, you should see a message saying “Your Software is up to date”. If an update is available, tap “Download and Install” to update the device.
Tip 5: Reset Network Settings
Anytime you are having problems with Wi-Fi connectivity, the best solution is to reset the network settings. This may erase all the Wi-Fi, VPN and Bluetooth data stored on your iPhone, but this will eliminate any glitches that could be causing problems with your connections.
To reset the network settings on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Enter your passcode when prompted and then tap “Reset Network Settings” to confirm the process. After reset, you need to reconnect to the WiFi network and enter the correct password. In such case, it would be easier to have the other person to enter the WiFi password manually rather than resetting the network settings.
Tip 6: Repair iPhone System without Data Loss
If all the solutions above fail to fix the problem and your iPhone is still not sharing WiFi password, it is possible that the iOS system itself may be damaged.
