    Does anybody know(rather than guess)
    why my iphone 4 will not stay on wifi
    when watching YouTube ? It was fine
    until ios 6, then started to kick me out &
    I would have to go to settings & recheck
    in, this will allow varying periods of viewing , from 30-odd seconds up.
    I have tried all the fixes suggested by
    all the good people out there they don't
    do much if anything. I have noticed that
    Vimeo does not cause this( through Safari, running ios6:3) youtube through Safari however, is nearly as bad as youtube app.
    what,technically is the difference
    between these services?
    to save the question, my wife's ipad has none of these troubles, so perhaps not the router!
    Help ?

    I can't even begin to know why watching a mere YouTube video would kick you off of your Wi-Fi network while watching other types of videos do not. Have you reset the network settings on your device? Have you tried restoring your device and setting it up as new to see if that helps?

    Are you watching the YouTube videos via the YouTube app or via Safari? I'm sitting next to my 23 year old son who is currently watching YouTube videos on his iPhone 5 without any problems. I asked if he has ever experienced what you mentioned in your initial post, and he said no. Anyway, I apologize for being unable to help you with your dilemma. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...

    following yet another hare
    ( rather than wild goose or red herring !)
    I tried turning autofill docs&passwords
    in Safari on, Now YTube ( through Safari) does not kick me out to Edge so often !!
    What else does this do?
