Why Does Skype Have Connection Issues on iPhone?
Skype uses the active Internet connection on your iPhone. Whether you’re commuting by bus, train or just walking down the street, you probably use public WiFi networks. As you move around, the signal strength of the WiFi hotspot you’re connected to will change, resulting in a change in speed performance. When you’re nearing the edge of a WiFi hotspot, you will most likely get an Internet connection that doesn’t work.
Also, sometimes your phone connects to a bad WiFi hotspot. This means that although it’s connected to WiFi, it doesn’t have any Internet connectivity.
In both cases – edge of WiFi and bad WiFi connection – your iPhone doesn’t know you don’t have a working connection to the Internet. The iPhone will stay connected to the WiFi hotspot (even if it doesn’t work) until:
- it finds a stronger signal for the same WiFi network;
- it detects another known WiFi network to connect to;
- it will switch to cellular eventually.
During all this “waiting” time, Skype will not be able to keep up your VoIP call. That’s how Skype gets its connection issues on the iPhone.
Skype Connection Issues on iPhone – the Easy Way to Fix It
If your smartphone cannot find any known WiFi networks nearby, it’ll switch between WiFi and cellular. The problem is that iPhones prefer WiFi connections rather than cellular ones by default. Even if your WiFi connection is poor and slow, your iPhone will stay connected to that while it’s in its range. Only after it loses signal, will it switch to cellular.
In this case, as you get away from the hotspot, your speed drops and Skype will encounter connection issues on your iPhone. It will keep buffering or even disconnect until your smartphone switches to cellular.
