    Go in to your Iphone software update and check

    I didn't know till it was mentioned here, though I didn't get an alert, it's available for download on my iPhone right now.

    This didn't change $hit for me. Droid gets 22mbits, iPhone POS gets 2-3 sporadic mbits. Same hosts, same network, same test.

    Suddenly Speedtest is telling our iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 that our ping is 130 and the speed and out download is 1.2Mbps, a mere 2 feet from the Airport Extreme. FCC, after always crashing once, tells us ping is 64 and download is 40.57 Mbps.

    Just an update, looks like things are holding for Iphone 5 and iphone 4 with the new update

  • MrLuxuryYacht Level 1 (10 points)

    Which makes me wonder two things:


    1) Why didn't Apple mention anything about wifi in the 6.1.3 notes


    2) Could it simply be that any update at all, and the ensuing install and restart, is what seems to be fixing it for some.

  • Gnavicks Level 1 (30 points)

    Same here. Updated to iOS 6.1.3 and slow WiFi issue persists.

    6.1.3 clean install. Set up as new iphone. Problem with wifi connecting and wifi range is still here :(

    Of course Wi-Fi still works beautifully in 6.1.3 for those of us who didn't have the issue before, so there's still more debug to be done:

    Those figures look ok to me.


    Just for fun I installed iOS6.1.3 on my faulty iPhone5 before returning it. As I expected, it made no difference whatsoever.

    William, can you try something for me? The server Speedtest is using is obviously very close to you, with a ping of only 18ms. Change the site in Speedtest Settings to somewhere in the world where your ping is larger, say up in the 200-300 range. Then test again. If possible, then repeat the test using an older device - iPhone 4, iPad 3, anything other than iPad 4, iPad Mini or iPhone 5. Do you find the older devices significantly outperfrom the newer devices to a site with a larger ping? That's what we're finding over at - very bad performance to sites that are more distant compared to older Apple iDevices. Unless, that is, you are running 2 downloads simultaneously - then things speed up!

    Do you have to have WiFi to get on the internet with the iphone 5?

  • JanSKay Level 1 (5 points)

    As many as you know I have had a replacement iPhone 5 for about 2 months. As a rule, it connects, but occasionally, the last 2 weeks or so, I have to shut off the WiFi and turn it back on for my WiFi to work. So, even a "working" iPhone 5 isn't really working as it should. And before anyone says, that's normal, it wasn't normal for my old 3g and 3gs. I'm just hoping it doesn't happen more often. Like others, I'm less apt to buy another iPhone.

  • MrLuxuryYacht Level 1 (10 points)

    SpeedTest 3.0, just out provides very different results for me. Could just be a good day for wifi, but all speeds are faster, and it finally shows speeds over 25-ish. Got 45 a few times.
