I have had zero problems with my drone up until now. After taking it out from a few days of not running it, I noticed the controller's WiFi won't connect at all to my phone (iPhone XR). When I turn on my controller, I check to see if the WiFi shows up on my phone and nothing is there. My controller connects to my drone just fine. Does anyone know of any at-home fixes or advice for this problem? If not, I'll just ship it off to DJI for them to fix it.

I don't know that this will fix your issue, but you could try resetting the Wi-Fi like this:

Okay, I found the fix. I decided to unscrew and pry open the back to see if there was anything out of place. Turns out there was. I found a large pieceof the electronics fully unplugged and just plugged it back in. I have pictures to show what I found and what I did.
