iPhone X is Apple's latest edition from the iPhone family. While most functionalities of the iPhone X work really great, some users have complained that they get poor iPhone signal strength.

There could be various reasons as to why that happens. Maybe your iPhone X has weak signals because its antennas are covered, and so on. The following guide shows a few ways you can use to improve the signal levels on your iPhone X.

Method 1: Boost Signal Strength by Turning Off Wi-Fi Assist on iPhone X

If you have Wi-Fi Assist enabled on your iPhone, it's likely causing the signal drop issue on your device and you should turn the feature off as soon as possible to get better network signals on your device. The following shows how you can do that:

  • Open the Settings menu on your iPhone and tap on the option that says Cellular.
  • When the Cellular menu opens, find and turn off the feature that says Wi-Fi Assist. You can simply turn its toggle to the off position and the feature will be disabled on your device.
