How To Fix Safari A Problem Repeatedly Occurred Issue
This error is displayed when Safari isn’t able to connect to the Internet and load the requested webpage.
1. Switch Internet Connectivity
First, try to commute web connection from Wi-Fi to cellular and vice-versa. iPhone will prioritize WiFi connectivity, but if the hotspot has an issue Internet might temporary stop working on your device.
Swipe for the Control Center and disable Wi-Fi. This will force the cellular data connectivity to kick-in. Does it help?
2. Restart iPhone
Next, make sure that you flush any minor glitch that’s preventing Safari from accessing the Internet by rebooting your device.
Tip: Apply the force restart trick to quickly start over.
3. Disable Safari Extensions
Malfunctioning extensions could prevent Safari from accessing the Internet:
Browse for Settings -> Safari -> Extensions and disable the available Extensions.
Get back to Safari and the ‘problem repeatedly occurred’ error should be replaced by the actual web page that you were trying to load.
If this worked, you can go back to the Extensions menu and enable the Extensions one by one until you pinpoint the one that’s causing the error. Some that you should focus on are Noir and Lastpass.
