Is your iPhone’s wireless internet connection unstable? It could be because your device auto-connects to a saved Wi-Fi network that has weak or unstable network reception. If that is so, then forgetting the problematic Wi-Fi network would be necessary. Read on to learn how to get this done on your new iPhone SE 3.

When you join or connect to a Wi-Fi network on your iOS device, that network will be saved and added in the current wireless network directory. Since it’s already added, your iOS device remembers it and automatically joins or connects to that network again whenever it’s available or within range.

If you don’t want your device to rejoin the network, then you will need to make it forget that network along with its password. To make this happen, you’ll need to execute an inbuilt iOS command called Forget This Network.

As the name implies, it deletes the Wi-Fi network from your device’s network database along with other relevant network information.

If you’re new to iOS smartphones and need some input on how to access and use this feature on your new iPhone SE 3, the following steps will walk you through the entire process.

The selected network will then be removed from the current list of networks on your phone. Your device will also be disconnected from that network (if it was connected previously).

Should you wish to use or connect to that network again, you will need to add or set it up on  your iPhone like the first time.

When to forget Wi-Fi network?

Normally, your iPhone automatically connects to a Wi-Fi network that it previously joined. So whenever that network becomes available or within range, expect your iPhone to connect to it automatically without having to enter the password for that network.

While this does offer convenience, there are just some instances wherein keeping this setup would result in some unforeseen problems. 

This is usually what happens when your device auto-connects to a saved Wi-Fi network that has weak or unstable connection. As a result, you’re getting an unstable or intermittent access to the internet.

This is when forgetting Wi-Fi networks comes in handy. With this inbuilt command, you can make your iPhone forget Wi-Fi networks very easily and thereby stop it from automatically connecting to that network when it’s in range.

Forgetting a Wi-Fi network is often carried out whenever a fatal network issue is encountered due to some corrupted wireless network saved on the device.

It serves as a way to fix a corrupted Wi-Fi network as you can set it up as new and join that network like the first time. It also stops your device from automatically remembering Wi-Fi networks that you’ve logged into as you’ll be asked to re-enter the password the next time you log into that network.

And that’s how you delete a Wi-Fi network from the Apple iPhone SE 3 (2022) wireless network directory.
