    Do you find your iPhone is not very good at connecting to known WiFi networks until you open WiFi settings and force connection?

    Not for me. Mine works as expected all the time.

    Never have had this problem on any iPhone I’ve owned going back to 3GS.

    Always smooth for me, including captive portals.

    Might want to reset network settings.

    You might want to reset your iPhone and then restore it. it will then operate properly. An iPhone on for several months has plenty of latent bugs

    My devices connect well. Maybe forget the network and then join the network again to see if it makes a difference. Also see if the issue is related just to one network or if all WiFi networks have issues.

    I would recommend a regular restart as a first step. Invasive troubleshooting like setting the device up from scratch should be a last resort in my opinion.

    The problem you bought a supercomputer that works as a phone. You run the phone for extended periods of time; the code and data remember strange states that the code blindly follows.

    If you want the accepted behavior, you have to reboot/reset the phone on regular intervals. Even big iron gets regularly rebooted so there are no irregularities.

    Any computer system can run into issues, for sure. However in 10 years of owning most iOS devices on the market I have no been in a situation where I needed to restore my devices to factory settings. If an issue showed up a restart of the device usually solved it. No need in my experience to reinstall iOS or perform any other drastic, invasive troubleshooting.
    That’s why I wanted to highlight that while your suggestions are certainly valid, they should be applied if the common quick fixes fail, like restarting the app in question, re-installing an app that has issues and of course restart the phone.
