My phone is connected to the internet but doesn’t show the WiFi bar logo?

So I was in the middle of watching a video until my phone died. I charged it and waited for it to restart again. It did but didn’t connect to the WiFi after at least waiting 15 seconds for it to connect. I opened the settings app and checked if it was connected. It was connected with a check mark but there was no WiFi bar logo. I was confused and tried watching some videos (which didn’t work). Does anyone have a solution to this?

P.S, I have a iPhone 6s for anyone who is curious.

    Your question says you are connected to the internet, but the details say you couldn't watch videos, so that is a little confusing.

    Sometimes you can connect to wi-fi but the wif-fi is not connected to the internet. On my phone it still has the wi-fi symbol, but puts an exclamation next to it. I don't know about your phone or if it is an issue, but something to think about/check.

    Go into airplane mode and then turn only the wi-fi back on. See if you have any internet connection (go to google or somewhere easy to connect to).

    I don't want to sound like a toxic Android user when I say this, but new iOS updates don't work on older Apple models, and this could have caused a problem with your Info Display. Unlike Android and yeah I'm sorry I don't want to sound like that guy but its TRUE. It doesn't even have to be an Android driven phone, just anything BUT iOS and you will be prosperous.

    Turn off the WiFi and then reactivated it or restart the phone. I am sure it is a temporary glitch.

      I already tried that multiple times. Didn’t work.
