    They said after Christmas 6.1. But we can hope it will be sooner.

    Same here update iOS 6.0.1 didn't fix wifi issue. Apple stop disappointing me

  • mojer Level 1 Level 1

    Shaddow- I have the exact same problem as you-  I can connect just fine but then if I leave and connect to another wifi network (I have WPA2 connections at three locations I'm in every day), when I get back I have to reboot and then I'm okay again. Generally need to reboot at least 5 times a day. This is my second iPhone 5, the first didn't connect at all.


    Sorry to say that 6.0.1 hasn't helped me. I was hopeful all day at work, and then I got home and yup, had to reboot to connect. Hope you have better luck.

    Got the replacement phone from verizon after 3 weeks, upgraded to 6.0.1 and back to square one. Same problem.

  • mobg888 Level 1 Level 1

    I would like to report that my iPhone5/iOS6 Wifi issues with WPA2 networks HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY RESOLVED with 6.0.1


    I would like to thank the Apple Engineers for responding to this issue which has been plaguing me no end for weeks.


    I just wished that they could have been more willing to give us more info along the way.


    But hey, all's well that ends well.


    Will be still supporting Apple products after this.

    6.0.1 Resolved my issue on 2 iPhones.


    wifi icon on iPhone shows signal seems week, but Face Time and Air Play to Apple TV are both working fine with no problems. I could not use either before 6.0.1

  • Isti98 Level 1 Level 1

    My iPhone 5 wifi issue with secured network (WPA2) has been fixed after upgrading to 6.0.1


    Only thing is you have to restart your iPhone after upgrade. mine one still had the problem untill I restarted.


    so far so good.

  • VivaTerlingua Level 1 Level 1

    It must be a hardware problem for those of us that still have problems after upgrading to 6.01.  Upgrading to 6.01 on my iPad3 that had wifi problems caused by 6.0 has solved the problems on my iPad.  Unfortunately the problem remains on my iPhone 5.

  • WiseJD Level 4 Level 4

    My iPhone 5 Wi-Fi issue has primarily been in discovering some Wi-Fi Networks that others device users around me are clearly discovering easily.  After my update to iOS 6.0.1 I had the same result that I have always had at one of these un-discoverable Networks, that is to say that unless I turned Cell Data to "Off", my iPhone 5 would not even discover the Wi-Fi Network.  The minute that I turned Cell Data to "Off", the iPhone not only discovered the Network but in-fact joined the Secure Network because it had joined it with the Password in the past. 


    Don't know if those of you still having Wi-Fi connect problems at home have tried turning Cell Data to "Off".

  • Nooch Level 1 Level 1

    6.0.1 solved the WPA2 issue for me. I can't imagine all the people who exchanged phones based on this problem. Seems like a huge waste of time and resources for everyone involved.


    I'm happy to have this fixed, but Apple completely blew the response to this issue. The right thing to do would have been an immediate statement indicating awareness of the issue, followed by a statement when they became aware it was a software issue and would be addressed in the next point release.


    We still don't know why some phones had the problem and some did not. Obviously Apple must be using different chipsets in the same phone. Apparently they don't want us to be aware of that either.

  • dherback Level 1 Level 1

    Well they still haven't solved it either Nooch.  Tons of people on here have tried 6.0.1 with no change including me.  I've still got my old iphone 4 that I haven't sold yet, I'm considering just going back to that and returning my iphone 5 rather than do the whole song and dance with so many trips to the apple store to get a replacement that might or might not solve it. 


    I'm starting to wonder if Apple is just handing people someone else's returned 5 and saying 'Here this one should solve the problem' to buy them a few more days.

  • chris7sam Level 1 Level 1

    I ran the update lastnight and it didnt work. Ughhhhh! My kids pressured me into an iPhone 5 saying I was like a caveman with my 5 year old Blackberry (which still functions at 100%).  So I finally switched.  I waited a month for my phone.  Does anyone know what the wait time is the 2nd time around?  Seems everything I buy is a dud.

  • VivaTerlingua Level 1 Level 1

    @dherback:  I'm with you.  I'm waiting for Apple to send me a package to send my phone in for repair, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't just return it to AT&T and wait 6 months for Apple to get this fixed or maybe get an S3.

  • dherback Level 1 Level 1

    Viva, what is their plan for you while your phone is in for repair?  Are they giving you another phone?

  • VivaTerlingua Level 1 Level 1

    No, they're not.  They could have sent me a "new" phone and then I would send my current one to them.  However, that would have required a $650 deposit on my credit card and a $29 express fee.  I can understand the deposit, but I din't see why I should have to pay $29 when it's their phone that is faulty.


    I'm just going to take my iPhone 4, which I still have, to the AT&T store and have them reactivate it and use it while I wait.  The Apple rep said I could just pull the SIM card out of my iPhone 5 and put it in my iPhone 4.  I had to point out to him that they used different size SIM cards.


    I'm still on the fence on whether to get it fixed or just return it to AT&T and be done with it.  The fact that Apple has not acknowledged they have a problem concerns me that they'll continue to give everyone (including me) the run around and not fix the problem.  I've not had the phone for 2 weeks yet, so I can still return it.
