Some iOS 6 users continue to have trouble using Wi-Fi

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Sep 2012, 08:23

When iOS 6 was pushed to users earlier this month, complaints about problems with Wi-Fi connectivity started flooding Apple's discussion forums. It was quickly discovered that a special webpage that iDevices used to check if a network requires log-in credentials was accidentally taken down...

I have the iPhone 5 and have not had any problems whatsoever. I have great battery, wifi works great, no yellow/purple coloring crap on screen, and I don't use any type of maps so I don't give a sh*t. I also know 5 other ppl with the iPhone 5 and none of them have had any of these problems.

Why would I lie? I would be pissed off if I had any of these problems and would bring the phone back. Just because i like apple products doesn't mean im goin to stick with a it if im having multiple problems. I have had it since Friday and haven't had anything wrong with it. Same with 3 of my friends and my two sisters.

Wifi is acting up, a good number of my apps are failing to load or crash (even ones like Facebook and photos), UI isn't running as fast as before, I could go on... My over all conclusion is the fact things were working correctly with iOS 5, and now with iOS 6 I'm seeing problems for the first time ever really.

It's kinda silly how Android fanboys are always crapping on Apple when there are problems found with one of their devices when it launches. I'm not an Apple fan, I own a GS2 and love it. But come on guys, ALL electronic devices have some sort of problems when they first launch. That's why there is almost always software patches or hardware revisions for every high-tech electronic device. Can't you people be just a bit more mature and rational?

Because the things u mentioned are deliberate and not accidental ,Apple knows about these defects before shipping but knows their fans would buy them anyway and wait for the fixes ,wake up .

You can't really know that sort of thing for sure. Yes, I understand an employee may have said they did know of these problems. But seriously, all the problems the iphone 5 has were deliberate and known? Come on, that's just your obvious bias against the product. Wake up.

And fyi, other manufacturing giants are not angels compared to Apple. If they could get away with what Apple does (if it is intentional), they would most certaintly do it.

dsmboost - Apple deserves any sort of criticism it can get - because of their arrogant nature and non-competitive practices.

Yes, you are right. Every phone has issues... but some of these are just plain stupid..

When iFans have a track record of constantly slamming Android phones you get a backlash of hatred towards the company. Add to it, when Apple touts their devices as perfect ("it just works," "hi, I'm a Mac...."), and then fails miserably with major problems, expect the negativity to arise.

All electronic devices are not marketed as "magical" and touted to "just work" by their rabbid fan base.

Aeires hit the nail on the head. For years iNuts have been trying to slam android devices for glitches and things that dont work as planned. Now Android has matured to a point where it works pretty flawlessly and iOS is going the opposite direction. The sheer amount of issues iOS6 and the i5 are having is actually becoming comical.
With the i4s we were having a "weekly issue" for the first month or 2, with the i5, its nearly daily. And were not talking a few minor glitches, we are talking MAJOR system issues like wifi, GPS, camera, easy denting, light leaks, screen banding, ect.

Plus the fact that they release only one phone a year which is sort of an advantage(you know to release a POLISHED BUG FREE product) yeah IT JUST WORKS..they should expect a slamming.

I'm thinking what the hell is iPhone 5 and iOS6 made up of? Funny LOCK, Low STOCK and Empty BARRELS??
I'm not an Apple hater nor a lover, but those who have iPhone 4 or 4S, be content with what thou has!!

My 4s was working fine until this update, how can you be content when there are clearly problems? If users don't complain and give feedback then software patches to fix glitches and problems would never be released. I will be content when Apple actually fixes these problems and the OS on my phone works correctly.

And if that doesn't happen then I will switch phones and OS. When I had problems with Android I switched, when I had problems with RIM I switched, and so on. Idc really what phone I have as long as is works as it is designed to.

It could very well be the router, or either one (as I pointed out in an earlier post). But it would be just like Apple to point the blame on someone/something else other than themselves.

Yes. It is router fault. Because I am using AirPort Extreme Base Station at home and all my iOS devices(ios 6) have wifi issues.

Have you looked for a firmware update for the AirPort Extreme Base Station?

It seems that die hard fans are still properly trained to never admit failure lies with Apple....

The WiFi issue lies with Apple, I'm 90% sure of that. But I can't rule out the 10% that it wasn't my router's fault because when I reset my router, things started working.

Screw it... 100% Apple's fault... I'm honestly planning on switching to something new ASAP, this iOS 6 has really pissed me off.

Why are companies still having trouble with Wifi when a new phone comes out? It's the year 2012...
