    Wish I had seen this before updating my 4s to ios 7. Same issue here. Going to bring it to Apple store and let them resolve it

    Same issue — no wifi after upgrade, using a 4S. I did the network reset, etc., and then did a backup/restore (reminded of how annoying it is that the restore doesn't actually restore the machine to where it was completely (e.g., audible books not downloaded).

     

    At first the wifi was working. But then I was getting funky freezes in, e.g., Message. And then I restarted, and back to no wifi.

    I also notice two other symptoms. When clicking General in settings it freezes for about 5 seconds before displaying the general settings screen. Also when shutting down it displays the spinning wheel for an unusually long time before shutting down.

    Yes, wjjw, You are correct...Its Freezing now...I notice that too....The major issue came after iOS7 upgrade is WiFi greyed out (i.e. disaabled) for which Apple is responsible to making the 4S h/w failure or a s/w issue....Hope apple should fix it and release a new iOS7 version as soon as possible or gave a chance to customers to downgrade it to iOS6....

    What is the deal Apple??

    To whatever poster asked if Apple reads these forums, in short: No.

     

    If you want to submit feedback on this, do so here: http://apple.com/feedback

     

    That is by and large the only real way to be heard.

     

    The device comes with a 1 year hardware warranty. It's unfortunate that this happens, but that is what is provided. You had the option to buy AppleCare or AppleCare Plus at the time of purchase (or 30 days thereafter), but most of you didn't. That, quite frankly, is your only option. You arent going to be provided an exception. Unless something major happens, this is what it is. Complaining in a discussion thread, or yelling at an advisor over the phone in chat won't resolve your issues at all (and the latter will make you a terrible human being, as advisors can't do anything else for you either).

     

    In warranty: fixed.

    Out of warranty: Pay out of warranty pricing for new device.

    That's great Evan, however Apple are providing a sub-standard product, and it's becoming clear that people shouldnt trust their upgrades in fear of damaging their devices.

     

    Up until the point of reading these posts I was about to kit out my business with Apple, however it seems as though they cannot be trusted, and I cannot take the risk of paying out for equipment that does not work.

    I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with that statement. I agree that its unfortunate, but I'm leaving my personal opinion out of it. I'm just dealing in facts here. I'm in a position to experience issues like this on a daily basis, and I know firsthand that it's not fun hearing this complaint over and over again, knowing there is no recourse.

     

    There is no real solution if restoring the device doesn't work other than getting the phone replaced, in or out of warranty. No matter who much complaining you do, it's not going to change.

    A friend had his iPhone 4S replaced by Apple due to these problems.  Let's see how long this post lasts.

    iPhone 4s user here who upgraded to iOS7 and lost wifi functionality about two days later. Have not been able to get it back no matter how many restores or other tricks I try. Extremely frustrating.

    For me the whole iOS7 experience has been from ****. Basically since the day I updated neither my iPhone or iPad work properly. Even my iPad which is a 3rd generation one glitches and has his own mind in general. Seems like a bipolar deamon has decided to move into it.

     

    My iPhone is even worse, trying to make a call takes ages, trying to check calendar or do anyting while in a call agreeing to business meetings is impossible. And now my WiFi doesn't work

     

    I don't like this a bit. For a good few years I've been living in a fairy tale where everything works. My Mac, iPhone and iPad have worked like dreams. And BAG I'm back to the Windows sensation.

     

    We all make mistakes, Apple isn't perfect either and we understand that. But just admit to the mistake. Take a step back, analyze and try again. We won't judge. In the end, we the core users are the future of Apple. The flip-floppers who change their minds every day can be won back. So listen to your core users, please.

     

    Ive is a genious of product design. But maybe he isn't suited to lead software development. We all have our strenghts and weeknesses.

    Also experienced this with ios702. Upgrade to 703 fixed nothing. Have iphone4S. Restoring network settings did nothing but placing in fridge (coincidentally??) made a temporary period of few minutes work. Strongly suggest Apple needs to provide software or hardware replacement for this, given my and other experience.
