Question: Updated to IOS 11.2.6 and my wifi will not work anymore

Hi


i am a uni student and use my phone for a lot of work regarding my degree, but when i updated my phone to ios 11.2.6 my phone WiFi has died completely. I cant use it for anything now.

i can connect to various WiFi connections/ cellular hot-spots, but after a few seconds the WiFi icon at the top of the screen disappears and i lose all internet connection. i know it works to start with as ill get a flood of notifications and emails and then dead. if i go into settings and WiFi it says i'm connected and that there is internet access (which i know there is as my flat mates phones and computers all connect fine, the only difference is i'm on ios 11.2.6). when trying to connect if i go out to the main settings page while trying to connect the VPN on/off slider is going spastic flicking between on and off without me touching a thing.

i have tried everything from soft reset to deleting the networks and re-adding them and even reinstalling ios 11.2.6 through iTunes on recovery mode.


as you can see below i am connected to the internet yet no wifi icon, when i first connect ( no more than 5 seconds) the wifi icon is present while it is there everything works fine and i get the various notifications.

Hi guys,


I wanted to chime in that I am experiencing the same issue on my 4 month old iPad. This is ridiculous.


This is really a good reason for not updating any Apple device until you absolutely have to. If your installation is currently stable, why take the risk? Hoping for a patch fix soon.

I just got my iPhone 6S back from Apple for a battery warranty and they updated it to iOS 11.2.6, and it's now doing the same thing. It's virtually useless now whereas it was rock solid before on a lower iOS version.


I've tried all the remedies listed here and on the internet but nothing worked.


Thanks for NOTHING, Apple.


Here's a suggestion, why don't you sort out the programming BEFORE you release it.

Hi Jared,
I am currently using 3 apple devices. An iPad, iPhone 6s and a Macbook Pro. Both my iPad and iPhone is experiencing the same problem regardless of the router being restarted. I have even gone through the extent of restarting my phone through force restart and even switching it off for a couple of hours. I believe Apple doesn't care enough to solve our issues. I'm definitely opting out of apple for my next devices.


Cheers,

A guy who regretted spending so much on Apple with so much trust.

Have the same problem. iOS 11.2.6. iPad Pro 10.5.


Thought that upgrading to 11.3 would solve the problem:

I updated one device. But got a check in my Spirit from God. “Don’t upgrade”

Glad I listened!..... 11.3 has all kinds of issues & one major with MDM.

I noticed with 11.3 wi fi signal drops and rises in levels.

Still looking to see if it drops out all together.


Work around at the moment with my iPad Pro:

Keep an eye in the WiFi indicator

I keep settings open and reconnect to my WiFi when need when the indicator vanishes.


Just have to wait and see if Apple release something like 11.3.1

or wait for 11.4

It does also!

Just in case Apple support is peeking.....

I’ve noticed that after a time of inactivity I’ll loose the WiFi connection.

It appears as if the WiFi goes to sleep/hibernates and drops the network and it must be manually

reconnected, although the password doesn’t have to be re-entered.

Wondering if the “keep alive“ sequence was lowered or dropped.
