    The title pretty much says it all. My iPhone 5s doesn't connect to WiFi on restart until I unlock my phone. Not sure what's the issue. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I've forgot my WiFi network and reset my network settings. Is it my passcode?

    ETA: yeah it's the passcode. Worked right when I took it off.

    Wifi password is stored in your iCloud keychain which isn't unlocked until you enter your passcode for the first time.

    Once you enter it, wifi will work fine until the next restart.

    Thanks!!!! And now I feel like an idiot for not ever knowing that or realizing it was happening like that. LOL

    What if iCloud Keychain isn't being used (basically disabled)?
