    Joe, I really don't think you are helping any one.

     

    Clearly there are a lot of disappointed loyal Apple users out there who genuinely feel that they have a justified complaint.  You can argue in law where you believe Apple stand in this, and you may well be right.  However, you may not necessarily be reflecting the position correctly in the eyes of the Apple Executive in which case you could be doing them a disservice. 

     

    By apparently presenting the Apple case to those disappointed Apple users, you could well be misrepresenting Apple and aggravating an already sensitive situation.

     

    I welcome and thank those who have made constructive suggestions on this forum to remedy the situation, no matter how bizarre they may appear - at least you are trying. 

     

    I am quite sure that no company is insensitive to public opinion and that therefore Apple will do the right thing to minimise an unfortunate situation.

     

    And let's not kid ourselves, there is something very clearly wrong for these phones to behave in the way that they have done.  Whether they are inside a warranty period or not, these are not old phones and I expect that no-one would expect this kind of problem for what is quite a new phone.

     

    So please refrain from the line by line pedantic arguement over the legal rights and wrongs.  Concentrate on offering positive solutions.  That is what people come onto this forum for.

    You couldn't be more wrong. I know it happened before ios7. It happened when people started downloading ios 6.1.3. Ever since then there have been issues right after the ios update. You said videos,apps, pictures. Oh, and the entire library of congress. And your facts to support you claim is where? I have only read wifi going geayed out after downloading ios 6.1.3 forward. More with ios 7 than ios 6. Apple knew there was a problem with the heat and continued to let us upgrade anyway.  It is very clear the heat or whatever generated from the download of either ios 6 or ios 7 did the damage, leaving the damage caused on Apple. I don't care if the phone was always defective. Right there you are saying Apple was making defective phones to begin with. That is a big selling point! The only posts I see are from downloading apples own ios that caused the damage. If happened any other time for any other reason, so be it...but that isn't the case here. Apples ios disclaimer is meant more for if an app doesn't work with their ios, not if the actual download of it fries your wifi! Anyone here post about no wifi after downloading the entire library of congress?

     

    And don't even say wifi isn't an important part of the iphone. That is he dumbest thing I ever read. Why does Apple make is ios updates available over wifi now? Nah, wifi isn't important when you have a limited data plan. How about the iPad owners? They also don't need wifi? The iphone is just a smaller iPad with phone capabilities.

     

    How many topics and threads are related to the dl of ios 7 messing up their wifi again?

     

    Golly Sheesh

    Apple just quashed my last post, something about ranting.  So to the point: Wifi is absolutely necessary for icloud backups too (through itunes).  To say Wifi is a nice to have on a smartphone is ludicrous. 

     

    Is that OK, Apple censors?  (And I guess that means they really ARE reading our 'rants' on this iOS7/Wifi issue, hunh?)

    they seem to advise you initially and then get bored of sending you a message; but if you push it they actually bar you from the forum and you can't log in or post for a week!!

    Joe, I really don't think you are helping any one.

    I've posted the only three possible 'helps':

    1) if the device is under warranty, Apple will replace it.

    2) If you are afraid the device will break just outside warranty, get an extended warranty.

    3) If your device is outside warranty, pay to get it replaced. (Apple MIGHT make an exception in rare cases and replace it anyway, depending on circumstances, but do not count on it.)

     

    That's the way warranties work- if the device is within the warranty period, it is covered. If it is outside the warranty period, it is not covered.  It certainly is unfortunate that people's iphones break. And doubly so that the break out of warranty.  But that's the way it is.

    By apparently presenting the Apple case to those disappointed Apple users, you could well be misrepresenting Apple and aggravating an already sensitive situation.

    If Apple wants to say 'Joe doesn't know what he's talking about- we'll gladly repair/replace iphones regardless of the warranty status', then they are welcome to do so.  I highly doubt they will, otherwise why have a limited warranty to begin with?

    I welcome and thank those who have made constructive suggestions on this forum to remedy the situation

    You're welcome.

    Whether they are inside a warranty period or not, these are not old phones

    As I understand it, the iphones affected by this are just the iphone 4's (and maybe 4s's?).  They are a couple generations old- the 5, 5c, and 5s have already come out. For example the iphone 4 has a A4 processor, the 4s has a A5 processor, the 5/5c has a A6, and the 5s has a A7 processor. That's 3 or 4 versions back. That IS "old", when it comes to technology.  Or would you consider Windows 98 (win 8>win 7>winxp>win 98) to be 'not an old OS'??

     

    In any case, whether or not you or consider them 'old', they are out of warranty, which is the only thing that matters.

    Concentrate on offering positive solutions.  That is what people come onto this forum for.

    See above, points 1, 2, and 3. Those are the Only solutions, whether you think them positive, or not.

    Update 7.0.5 is when?

  • 322. Re: wifi greyed out after update to ios7
    Mishmumkin Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well Joe, you are both persistent and consistent.

     

    Just for the record, my phone was 18 months old when the wifi greyed out shortly after updating version 7. I did get a free replacement after contacting Apple support; but then I do live in the UK which has a different approach to longevity when it comes to electrical goods.

     

    And I rather think your comparison of a 4S iPhone to Windows 98 is somewhat ridiculous. I am sure you can do better than that.

     

    And I do not think your contributions were either positive or helpful unless advising someone to close the stable door after the horse has bolted is either positive or helpful.

    Totally inappropriate comparison. You cannot compare iPhone versions with Windows versions. win 8>win 7>vista spans the entire life cycle of iphones. XP stretches back to 2001. You know that's a BS argument.

    Replace #3 with "If you're out of warranty, you're SOL." Of course, you assume people will stick with Apple. In that situation, why wouldn't people check out non-Apple phones? I hear they are quite good.

     

    You make it seem like it's a character defect for someone with a non-functional out-of-warranty phone to look for a solution that will make their phone work again.

     

    I found a solution that works for many people and offered it on this board and I get critcized/trolled by your ilk on here (not sure if it was your or not) for offering a non-Apple approved solution. But for out of warranty iPhones, I don't see any reason to care what Apple approves because they have washed their hands of these defective handsets.

     

    For out of warranty iPhones, why would you discourage people from trying a solution that people have found success with? Even if it may be a temporary fix. It will be that much closer to the end of their contract.

  • 325. Re: wifi greyed out after update to ios7
    Trent Baur Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    It depends on whether or not your subscription is under warranty. Did you opt-in for the Protection Plan? If not, you're SOL.

    Hmmm, Iv seen so many post's about people upgrading to os7 on there iphone 4s. Use search, using the word iphone 4s. First so the forums dont get flooded with the same post over and over again. Just saying!!!

    Yes, that's the whole point. The heat generated from the download.  Which is NOT dependant on what is downloaded.  Download ANYTHING that large all at once, NOT JUST the iOS updates, and the fault will be exposed.

    you are saying Apple was making defective phones to begin with

    I've already gone over this.  ALL devices (and parts) will fail, under the right ('wrong') circumstances.  My coffee cup will not hold liquid magma. But, when it comes to normal use, it will hold coffee just fine.  The faulty wifi circuits on some iphones will not hold up under extended, sustained load, but when it comes to normal use, they work just fine.

    So show me some examples, you keep saying with nothing to back it up!

     

    Also, about your cup, if ten cup manufacturer says we started making a new coffee called magma. Soon as you pour it in your cup, it breaks because it can't handle the heat. Now it's yiur fault for using the coffee they said would go in it?

     

    Bam!
