Has anyone else with IOS 14.2 noticed that wifi disconnects when the screen is off?

This has caused a me a few issues now in missing whatsapp messages, and siri not working.

The phone also won't connect to any wifi network that doesn't have internet access.

My issues are on an iPhone 7, but I presume it's the same for all. Connect to network via wifi. Leave phone to turn its screen off. Come back to phone later (long enough for it to sleep), "Hey siri do 'this'...". Siri can't do anything because there's no wifi/internet connection.

EDIT:

Seems like it is a known bug, with Apple possibly working on it for newer releases.
