Please help my wifi is disabled! iPhone 8

Help please! All my wifi options are greyed out and disabled on my iPhone 8’s. I’ve reset it 3 times reset network settings everything and it’s still not an option. Anyone know why this might be?

Air plane mode on?

clean your headphone jack with Q-tip/toothpick. Debris often gets lodged in there and for certain models, your WiFi antenna is impacted

Did you recently update your operating system?

Sure try that lol. Any water damage? Do you recall dropping your phone?

Hmm, I'm no expert. Maybe its a hardware issue?

One last suggestion I have for you is. Back everything up. Then do factory reset. REMEMBER TO BACK EVERYTHING UP FIRST!!!!!

Had that on my iPhone 7. WiFi/Bluetooth board bad but it’s part of main board, and only way to fix was replace for $350.
Ended up getting a new phone, not worth the repair.
