Greetings, so i have had an problem with my phone for some time, can't recall when it started to happen. So basically, when i try to connect to my home Wi-Fi, the phone connects, but after some time suddenly disconnects and whenever i restart the wi-fi it doesn't show any connection, not my Wi-Fi nor others. But when i tried connecting to Wi-Fi somewhere else, it doesn't disconnect. ( like at a place of a friend/shop) So firstly i thought problem could be with the router/wires, but my family members doesn't have any problems with the Wi-Fi. So it leaves me to a conclusion that the problem is in my phone.
I've tried reseting the network settings, forgetting the connection, restarting phone. They helped in the start, when i turned the phone back on it showed i can connect again, but suddenly it again disconnects, without the chance to reconnect. ( When i turn it on, it just disappears within 5-10 minutes time for no reasoning)
Anyone can help?

This sounds like there is a problem with your WiFi. Based on the description, I would guess the iPhone is being assigned an IP address that is being used by another device. Rebooting the router could free it up, unless the other device steals the address again.

I would dig into the router to see current devices connected without the iPhone connected. Then turn on WiFi on the phone to see it gets connected, look at Settings->WiFi->[your network name] to see if the phone is getting an IP address that was in the list of curren connected devices.

There may be more you need to do like upgrade firmware, assign IP addresses for other devices, reboot the bad device, etc.

Apple is correct. There were no known issues with iOS14 and WiFi.

If you are also getting the temporary connection, then disconnect, see if you have a device that already has the address your phone is getting.

Most people with WiFi issues on iOS need to reboot their phone to fix it.
