    Hello. I have to reset my network settings every morning due to a know problem with Three and 4G on an iPhone 7. What is weird is that whenever I do it my iPad also loses wifi connection and I have to enter the password in again when I get home. What's weird is my iPad is at home on the wifi and my iPhone is at work when I do it. How can this be happening? Is it because they are all linked by iCloud?

    You answered your own question. Remove a wifi network from one iCloud device it clears it from the others.

    Usually it's iCloud Keychain that is behind something like that, although some have said it happens even without it and just simply from logging in with the same iCloud account.

    Yes, it's iCloud. Resetting network settings will wipe out the saved WiFi connections on all of your devices where iCloud keychain is enabled. It happens on my MacBook and iPad every time I reset network settings on my iPhone.

    If desired, you can disable iCloud keychain and this will no longer occur.
