Now Wi-Fi doesn't work for several Apple iPhone users following iOS 12.1.2 update

Now Wi-Fi doesn't work for several Apple iPhone users following iOS 12.1.2 update
Alright, so the update to iOS 12.1.2 broke cellular data connectivity on various iPhone models around the globe. But those affected can still get their daily Twitter fix via Wi-Fi, right? Uh, not so fast. According to Forbes, it appears that the iOS 12.1.2 update also prevents several iPhone users from connecting to a Wi-Fi signal. 

One Twitter user had a workaround for the loss of Wi-Fi connectivity. He says that disabling Wi-Fi calling and changing the settings from voice and data to data only might help. If your iPhone has lost Wi-Fi connectivity, it doesn't hurt to give this a try.

You might recall that one of the reasons why Apple rushed out iOS 12.1.2 was to exterminate a bug that prevented iPhone users in Turkey from connecting to cellular data (the other reason had to do with the Chinese sales ban). Ironically, the update spread the problem in Turkey to iPhone users throughout the world, broke Wi-Fi connectivity for some, and certain iPhone owners now have seen their expensive handset turn into a paperweight.


There is potentially some good or bad news on the way. Apple is beta testing iOS 12.1.3, but iPhone owners might be a little worried about what the next iOS update will do to their phone.

Intel modemz suck. Software updatez are not taking care of the issue. Apple needz to crawl back to Qualcomm, kizz some hiney, and get some real modemz back into the iPhonez. Thiz iz plain ridiculouz. My Max haz had them since day one, and no software update haz fixed it, cause it'z a damn hardware issue. I just might start laying my Note 9 on my Max, and use it az a coaster when it'z having itz issue'z. Stop trying to play the rest of uz for fulz Apple, the Big 8 play that role great.

This issue has personally affected some of my friends QC modem iPhones as well. Also the fact that many iPhones (not all) have been effected after an update clearly shows that it is a software issue for most folks (not all).

Odd thought PA..... maybe slow your roll with the overuse of that same picture. I’m sure that person dies a little inside each time they are put on worldwide blast.

I never have these issues with my Samsung updates. I appreciate the extra time they take with updates instead of rushing them out and pushing out a update to fix the update. Maybe I'll hold off on updating my max for now...

My Note 9 has been bullet proof. Don't recall any issues, that needed updates. Now it's Samsung that (just works).

"I appreciate the extra time they take with updates instead of rushing them out and pushing out a update to fix the update" LMAO good one Thats all apple does is push out update to fix the last update.

He never answers me, because he’s scared. I know who he is. I’m editing this, because I realized that it sounds vaguely threatening. Scared is the wrong word, I’m no physical threat to him. Perhaps nervous is better? At any rate, I recognize him and his comment style from another website.

Mission impossible. IOS is a stinking pile of junk code.

I wouldn't go that far, but for such a watered down, light OS, why can't Apple get it together? The more Apple copies Samsung and Google, the worse iOS gets, but Samsung and Google are just getting better.

It's by design. Apple doesn't want it's users to have connectivity to complain about bendy ipads, broken updates, etc.

It's Intel bro. Even last years Intel X models had the issue, but to a lesser extent. These 2018 iPhones got it bad, and its plain to see, other than to the iFlock.

IMO Apple should have already learned it's lesson 2 years ago when it was discovered that they were throttling their iPhone 7 units with Qualcomm modems to match the download speeds of units equipped with Intel modems...
