    This isn’t the LTE issue some are experiencing. My phone will randomly lose WiFi and go back to LTE, even when WiFi strength is good and I haven’t moved.

    It’ll sometimes rejoin the network on its own, and sometimes not until I go into settings.

    This happens at home and elsewhere, so I know it’s not my network. Also, my X never did this. I didn’t pay attention the first while with the phone, so I don’t know if it happened before this week, but now that I’ve noticed, I’m seeing it happen multiple times per hour!

    I’m going to contact Apple, but I was curious if I was alone here.

    For me it seems the whole connection on WiFi sometimes get stuck. It's connected but data isn't moving. Toggling wifi on and off fixes this. I've had this happen on three different WiFi networks (work, client and home) so far. I've got an iPhone XS. I hope iOS 12.1 fixes this.

    Girlfriend is having the same problem. She has a XS. I’m not experiencing it on my Max.
    We are on the same Wi-Fi network.

    As soon as iOS 12 came out my 8+ would disconnect and reconnect WiFi rapidly sometimes for a minute or more even sitting next to my router. This is after owning my 8+ since launch and having no problems until iOS 12.

    Xs Max does same thing. Really annoying. Especially when trying to read watching it bounce between WiFi and lte. Because I have a vpn it is really noticeable.

    I sure hope iOS 12.1 fixes this. Doesn’t happen all the time.

    Same thing happens to me, specially when it switches between the 5ghz and 2.4 ghz networks.

    problem persists even after 12.0.1 update
    Call Apple tech support let them know that’s the only way we get this resolved

    I'm on iOS 12.1 Developer Beta 3 on my XS Max and I have pretty constant WiFi problems, sadly, it's not fixed in this update, so far.

    My wife's iPhone 8 has no such issues and neither did any of my previous iPhones.

    Yep. I am seeing this. Visited this forum to see if it's my phone or my previously reliable Netgear Orbi.

    This problem is sending my cellular data usage to new highs.

    We have two XSM’s in our household, both on 12.0.1. One has this issue, the other doesn’t.

    This happens on my non-cellular iPad Pro 10.5 too.

    I have an iPhone X and an iPad Pro 9.7. Since upgrading to iOS 12, I have seen this sporadically on both devices.

    What's funny is 12.0.1 made wifi worse for my Xs MAX and my wife. I don't have the LTE to WiFi switching happening anymore but now I get the constant: "You're not connected to the internet."

    My Xs Max WiFi is consistently slower than my 10.5 iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. It often will show only 2 bars of WiFi instead of the full 3. Even in the Apple store, which is saturated with WiFi, it will drop a bar of WiFi.

    But it passes Apple’s diagnostics, so they say it’s fine.
