The Best Signal Boosters for iPhones and iPads: A Guide

Experiencing Poor Cell Phone Signal on Apple Products?


Lately, you have been experiencing poor cell phone reception on your Apple products. Every time you are talking on your iPhone you drop calls and your text messages take forever to send. When you are browsing the web on your iPad the pages load extremely slow or don’t finish loading because you don't have signal. It’s frustrating!

I’m sure you have searched the internet, contacted Apple, and considered switching carriers to improve your cell phone signal.

Sometimes weak cellular signal has nothing to do with your phone or cell phone provider.

Why does my iPhone have poor cell phone signal?


Cell phone signals are radio waves, the AM-FM kind. Like all radio waves, they are easily disrupted.

There are different factors that disrupt cell phone signal:

  • Heavy cellular traffic: Are you in an area where there are a lot of people using the network?
  • Cell tower distance: Is there a cell phone tower near you?
  • Mother Nature: Are there trees, hills, mountains, or valleys around you?
  • Building material: Is your building constructed of metal, concrete, or brick?
  • Internal building obstructions: Does your building have thick walls, plaster, drywall, or wood?
  • Weather: Is it raining or snowing?

What can be done to IMPROVE your iPhone cell phone signal?


Cell phone signal boosters are a great investment to improve your cell phone signal.

A cell phone signal booster takes any existing signal in the area, amplifies it for better use, and rebroadcasts the boosted signal into your home, office, or vehicle; it can amplifies existing 3G and 4G signal up to 32x. Essentially, a cell phone signal booster mitigates numerous factors (like the ones mentioned above) that intervene with your cell phone signal.

Here are other benefits of owning a cell phone signal booster:

  • You will no longer have dropped calls.
  • You will have better internet connection on your iPhone and iPad.
  • You will have faster upload and download speeds.
  • You will see faster text message deliveries.
  • You don't need wifi or any type of broadband connection for your signal booster to work.

Do iPhone Signal Boosters Really Work?


For cell phone signal booster to work, there must be existing cell phone signal outside your home. A cell phone signal booster ENHANCES existing signal, it does not create it. Here is a simple test to know if you do have existing signal… Can you make calls outside your home? Do you find that your cell phone signal is stronger outside? If the answer is yes, then a signal booster will work for you.

If you want more specific information, there is ways to measure your cell phone signal strength. Don’t put all your trust on the bars your phone shows you; they are not always accurate.

For iOS 11 and above:

Check out this highly recommended way of reading your cell phone signal strength.

Will a cell phone signal booster work for iPads?


Cell phone signal booster are not designed for just phones. They work with any device that has 4G, 4G LTE, and 3G capabilities.

Therefore, a cell phone signal booster will work for iPads as long as the iPad is connected to a cellular network. Meaning, your iPad can access the internet without being connected to WiFi.


Where can I use an iPhone and iPad signal booster?


Wilson Amplifiers offers a wide range of cell phone signal booster models – each tailored to your specific needs.

Whether you’re at home, in the office, or on the road, there is a solution to boost your iPhone and iPad 4G signal anywhere.


What cell phone signal booster should I get?


There are a few questions you should ask yourself to find the best signal booster for your needs:

  • Are you looking to get a signal booster for your home or vehicle? Maybe both?
  • If you want a signal booster for your house, how much area are you trying to cover? Are you looking to cover only one room, two rooms, or the whole house?
  • If you want a signal booster for your vehicle, what type of vehicle do you have (car, truck, RV, or camper)?

Here are some recommendations to help you make the best decision:

iPhone and iPad Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home


The Best Professionally Installed Signal Booster for Home

  • Superior cell phone service for your entire home. 5G Ready
  • Up to 7,500 sq. ft. to coverage under best conditions

Our Review:

The weBoost Installed Home Complete Signal Booster Kit is the most powerful home booster we have. It works best for large homes in urban or rural areas. Under the best conditions, it can give you reliable coverage throughout your home up to a 7,500 sq ft. It’s important to understand that the coverage area can be affected by the strength of your outside signal.

Additional antennas will be required to maximize your coverage – especially if you are trying to cover more than one floor.

The best part of the weBoost Installed Home Complete Signal Booster is that it offers professional residential installation. You won't have to stress about installing the signal booster yourself nor trying to figure out what the best location for the signal booster is.

Our Review:

The weBoost Home MultiRoomSignal Booster Kit is the most popular signal booster for home. It's perfect for midsize homes and offices in urban or rural areas. There is one main thing you should consider about the signal booster. Under the best conditions, this signal booster can cover up to 5,000 sq ft. If you have weak cellular signal outside your home, the signal booster will not be capable of covering 5,000 sq feet. A more realistic coverage area expectation is 1,000 to 2,500 sq ft. Depending on the strength of your outside signal, you can get more or less coverage area.

It is important to note that the weBoost Home Multiroom Signal Booster is a DIY kit. If you were looking for a signal booster that can be professionally installed, consider the weBoost Installed Home Complete Signal Booster Kit.

The Best Cell Phone Signal Booster for One or Two Rooms

  • Enhances 4G, LTE, and 3G
  • Up to 1,500 sq. ft. of coverage under best conditions or 1-2 rooms
  • Up to +60 dB of gain for 32X stronger signal
  • Works best for one room, apartments, and small homes

Our Review:

The weBoost Home Room Signal Booster Kit is the most affordable signal booster; great if you are on a budget. It enhances your signal in areas up to 1,500 sq ft under perfect conditions. However, depending on the strength of your existing outside signal, a more realistic coverage area is 200 to 500 sq ft.

Most customers have mentioned that they need to get much closer to the inside antenna than anticipated for better signal. It's a great option if you live in an apartment, dorm room, or condo. The weBoost Home Room Signal Booster Kit is a good starter kit if you have decent outside signal; it doesn't cover the whole home and it's not a strong performer in rural areas with poor signal. If you live in an area with a weak signal, it's very unlikely you will see the results you want and should consider an upgrade to the weBoost Home MultiRoom Signal Booster Kit.

The Drive Reach is our most powerful in-vehicle cell phone signal booster. With its increased uplink output, users can access towers that are 2x farther for twice the signal strength – signifying an increase of almost 5dB in uplink output power.

The kit comes with a mini outside magnet mount antenna (adhesive for aluminum vehicles) to pick up the signal. A low-profile interior antenna (usually Velcroed to the driver’s seat) to broadcast the signal inside the vehicle. Keep in mind that you do have to be about an arm’s length from the interior antenna to get the boosted signal. It designed for cars, SUVs, trucks, and RVs.
