Security researcher Carl Shaw discovered the error after trying to connect to his Wi-Fi network, and after typing the name of the network, the connection on the iPhone was permanently disabled.
All attempts to fix the problem failed, even after changing the hotspot’s SSID or even restarting the device.
Other users who frequently encountered the problem suggested that the issue might be related to the first time using the percent sign “%” in the network name, which leads to an input issue, where iOS interprets the characters following “%” as the format specifier.
Technical reports revealed that iPhones that encountered the problem needed to reset their network settings before they could connect to Wi-Fi again.
To perform the reset, you can open the Settings app and tap General, then Reset, then tap Reset network settings and confirm the request.
