Apple to fix iOS Wi-Fi problems

October 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

Apple’s dirty little secret, which was kept out of October 23rd’s iPad 4 and iPad mini’s limelight, is that iOS 6, the new and popular operating system for iPhones and iPads, still has serious Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networking problems. Now, though, it appears that a new version of iOS 6, iOS 6.01, will be fixing these problems in the next few weeks.

According to BGR, Apple sources confirm that they’re testing iOS 6.01. I’ve also been told by sources at one of the major telephone carriers that testing has indeed begun. This update will fix numerous problems. These include the horizontal lines bug, a problem with the camera’s flash not going off, and other minor problems. The real news as far as I’m concenred is that it will will fix iOS 6’s spotty Wi-Fi and fix the truly costly problem of iOS 6 using expensive 3G or 4G instead of free Wi-Fi when both are available.
