After iOS6, my wi-fi keeps disconnecting!


I'll be playing an online game and every-so-often, my wifi will disconnect. Very annoying when the game im playing requires you to stay til the end to receive points if you win.


I know its not a problem with my router as this problem only started after i installed iOS6.


Anyone else having this issue?


iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    I am having the same problem and it is just irritating. It's making me want to downgrade to OS 5.1.1.

    I am also having the same issues, cannot connect to wifi anywhere.  I have a limited

    internet phone plan so this is very irritating. Also, when I am on Facebook, I cannot

    do the check-in function. I have already tried deleting and re-installing Facebook, no help.

    Yes, I am having this issue, too.  It is extremely frustrating.  This is just one part of a myriad of problems that I never had with iOS 5.1.1.  Apple needs to fix the bugs in iOS 6 or allow a downgrade-- And SOON!

    After the IOS 6 update to my new 4s, wi-fi dropped in the middle of the night and switched to cellular, uploaded my iCloud backup, then switched back again to wi-fi. This happened 4 times before I caught it. I wouldn't have even known except that I got a text from Verizon saying that I had used 50% of my data limit in just 6 days.


    So far, Apple says this problem is only an iPhone 5 problem, but I think it's an IOS 6 problem.

    Depuis iOS6 il n'y a  plus que des plantées et disfonctionnement sur mon iPhone 4 et aucune aide est disponible ni mise à jour. Apple devient vraiment de la camelotte! Toutes les 2 à 10 minutes il faut le couper pour avoir de nouveau un réseau WiFi. Bluetooth c'est idem, lenteur et faible, c'est le plus mauvais système de tous les portables!

    J'en ai marre du support en anglais et des billets d'aide totalement inutiles (en anglais toujours et toujours), conçus pour débiles mentales!

    LA SOLUTION: un appareil avec Android ou Windows 8!!!

    It is sooo true i have this problem too, just when i lock the screen off, after 2 min i check it and i see that the wifi is not connected anymore and the wifi icon is not there too, so i have slide to unlock the screen to reconnect to the wifi. Is there any help or something i should do to fix this issue? Because it is relly so annoying... Tx

  • Cacaoboenne Level 1 (0 points)

    Yup same problem here... can't find a way to fix it, except constantly reconnecting manually after unlocking the iPhone.

    It is propably a software glitch - as usual, it seems to be a recurring event, when new OS are released (OS and iOS), so the next major software update for iOS will propably fix it.

    I'm still having problems with my Wi-Fi after upgrading to Mt. Lion... sigh.

    The next update - according to rumours - should be in the offing; so guess we just have to endure it for some more time.

    This has been true with every version of iOS back to 1.0. It is nothing new. A check of older messages in the forum will confirm this. It is by design, because leaving WiFi on continuously will drain the battery in a few hours. If you leave the phone plugged in WiFi will stay connected.

    Since IOS 6 my WiFi cant handle YouTube or any heavy bandwith, but my 3G connection works with flying colours?  Same on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2...

  • applegirl4skye Level 1 (0 points)

    I seem to be having the same problem with the wi-fi, but mine also extends to my phone too - shows I have full signal strength, but won't let me dial out, then sometimes it does and then sometimes it cuts me off!  A bit of me thinks my iphone is about to roll over and expire and it's just giving me a early warning, but having read this discussion I feel there is a glimmer of hope that it's all just Apple (iOS6 & Mountain Lion on my iMac) - hurry up with those updates Apple - PLEASE!!  It wouldn't be so bad if they just confirmed with everyone there's a problem and that the fix is on it's way!!  Communication, Apple, it is the future!!
