Hi all,


after applying the iOS 6.1.2 update my iPhone 5 does no longer connect to my 5 GHz 802.11n wireless network at home. No problems with 2,4 GHz. My iPad 4 and iPad mini, also with 6.1.2, have no 5 GHz connectivity problems.


My router is an AVM Fritz!Box 7390 running 5 and 2,4 GHz Wi-Fi simultaneously.


Anybody else?

    i have the same problem with you iphone 5 wont connect anymore to our company wifi connection. I updated first my ipad 3 and saw there were no problems so I did it as well to my new iphone 5..after the reboot damned cant connect to the same connection. But it was very fine with ipad 3...

    did you guys tried to connect using static IP ? I had some troubles with wi-fi since iOS 6 in some wifi networks, don't know if it is because of 5GHz or not.


    Try also to restore network settings in the iPhone..


    hope that helps

    I'm having the same issue. iPad4 works perfect on wifi but my iPhone5 won't connect to my wifi or micro cell.  ***

    Weird, right?

    Same thing here.


    iPad never had an issue though, same updated version.

    Same issue here. Not only wifi but also Bluetooth is f*up. I have to literaly keep the phone next to the bluetooth in order for me to use it.


    Please release 6.1.3 to fix these issues

    Note to self: My issues persist even after resetting the network preferences on the iPhone 5. Both iPads (4 and mini) connect flawlessly to the 5 GHz network.


    I've asked on Google+ if more people have this problem and got a couple of feedbacks that everything was fine. Which is nice for those people but not for us here.


    Haven't tried Bluetooth yet since I hardly use it.

    Is your router firmware up to date?  Have you tried resetting your router?  No problem here on 5 GHz on iPhone 5 with 6.1.2 (using an AirPort Extreme with a separate, designated 5 GHz SSID).

  • Kykiskly Level 1 (0 points)

    Tried on Airport Extreme and Time Capsule both using separate 2.4 & 5Ghz SSIDs. I carried a 4G HotSpot ( -Limited-Edition) which sits next to my Iphone and signal is 1-3 bars most of the time.


    It is well appreciated to Apple Devs for fixing the Exchange Calendar issue with the new released but breaking needs such as Wifi and Bluetooth is not acceptable , and the fact that you cannot roll back to previous fw simply s***s.


    Please apple fix these issues asap.

    Perhaps your iOS update went bad in the installation.  I'm not having trouble with Bluetooth either, so whatever problem you're seeing does not appear to be by design, it's not unusual to have iOS updates go afoul.


    If you did the update over the air, maybe restore the iPhone from your computer to download the full iOS package and re-install it that way.  Re-load your backup to save you some trouble, but if you still have a problem it could be a corrupted backup, which means restoring as a new iPhone and starting all over (I know, not fun).

    It was via air, good call there. I will do the update using my Itunes and see the outcome, but still I am not the only one complaining about the glitches with the update. Gotta keep that in mind fellows


    And what is interesting comparing the updates is that via air = 107MB vs Itunes = 1.04GB. Not sure why the difference.

    Well, sending the entire payload over the air is why there's a difference, only what's needed is sent OTA.  However, with this update I had to be on Wi-Fi, I thought last time I did OTA it was over cellular.


    In any case, you can imagine that installing a partial iOS update can have risks, so downloading the complete iOS package and re-loading may help.  Hopefully your backup did not get corrupted in the process!

    Stupid me. After switching Wi-Fi in my router off and back on again the iPhone picked up the 5 GHz network w/o problems. Can't believe this.


    I just did not think about the router because all my other devices (and I've got quite a few) had no problems at all, so I thought this could not be the culprit. But it obviously was.


    Good luck to all the rest!

    Just completed the full roll-out and same situation with the Wifi


    Still gotta try with the bt when I get home
