So my iPhone 5 always had the problem of disconnecting from the wifi signal I was on whenever the iPhone is locked. This is a little frustrating because this means I don't get notifications from apps like the email app, Facebook, Whatsapp, Viber, etc.

I was elated at the newsw of the iOS 6.0.2 update which would "fix" supposed Wifi bug. Evidently it didn't. If you have had previous experience such as this or know anyone who does, you opinion is much appreciated.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    Hi,

     

    I have exactly the same problem. My Wi-fi does not work and my battery life is very poor. I have bought my Iphone5 3 days ago. It is a shame.

     

    Please, fix this problem!!

     

    Caracteristics :

    - Iphone 5

    - IOS 6.0.2

    Having same issue as well. I had no wifi problems before 6.0.2 now my wifi bounces my signal constantly and when my phone is locked it drops the signal - forcing my phone to use LTE data which I don't want it using while I am home. Very frustrating indeed

    ...

     

    Per designed, Wi-Fi will disconnect in sleep mode to save battery.

    If you want Wi-Fi to stay connected even in sleep mode, plugin to a wall power socket.

    It is what it is since the first iPhone.

    You can of course get notification using cellular data just not over Wi-Fi.

    Same here need to be at least 10 feet away to get full signal as soon as I move away it drops drastically, but free wifi areas will not connect automatically, poor ios 6.0.2 I thought this was the fix

    In addition to wi-fi problem do you guys having a problem with the battery life, especially after installing the ios 6.0.2? Even i have done nothing in 6 hours and left my phone at home, battery went down dor 15 percent.

    It was way too lasting longer than that.

    will appreciate if you share your comments

    Same issue with the wifi after updating to 6.0.2 . wifi is completely useless (no matter to what router I connect, it cannot even pass the Speedtest.net test, as it shows 0 download and/or upload every time I run the test) and i barely have any 3g traffic included in my plan. This is incredibly frustrating and I really hope they get to fix it soon.

     

    When it comes to the battery drain, so far I haven't noticed any difference but having in mind I can't use the internet on it practically at all I can't really know for sure...

     

    iPhone 5 - iOS 6.0.2

    Same issue as most of you. I just updated to iOS 6.0.2 which apparently solve the Wi-Fi problem but I still can't connect to Wi-Fi

    So far I have not noticed a battery drain but is very frustrating that a $800 phone can't connect to Wi-Fi

    I'm still waiting for an official Apple Statement
