As many of you guys may already know, the Apple iPhone 7
is plagued by some very serious connectivity issues around the world
. In the US, users on all four major carriers have reported signal loss issues, but it looks like Verizon users are getting the short end of the stick
, with numerous users reporting that their brand new iPhone 7 units are seemingly randomly dropping 4G LTE signal and reverting to 3G or going completely off the grid.
Thankfully, Apple has just launched a new iOS update that should, at least in theory, solve the issues.
The iPhone maker has just launched the iOS 10.0.3 update. Ticking in at 103MB in size, the update apparently has only one end goal, and that's to fix some bugs. The changelog, however, only specifically mentions one of them, which appears to be the connectivity-related bug we've previously mentioned.
The official changelog for the iOS 10.0.3 update reads:
iOS 10.0.3 fixes bugs including an issue where some users could temporarily lose cellular connectivity.
Note that Apple's own support page mentions that the iOS 10.0.3 update is only available for the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus
. If you've been experiencing LTE connectivity issues on older iPhone models, it looks like a bug fix is not available for you just yet.
Once you install the update, please drop us a line and let us know if it fixes your iPhone 7 connectivity woes. Many have suggested that these problems were the result of a software bug, instead of a hardware problem as others have suggested. On our part, we definitely hope that these issues will be solved through this software update, but it's too early to tell at the moment. Fingers crossed!
