The problems with WiFi connection on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad has triggered startling responses — much of it is overwhelmingly negative — in the Apple community. Users have stood transfixed before their iOS devices, often wondering what’s wrong with the WiFi. Some folks have claimed it’s the hardware, while a lot of us believe the new iOS 6.0 / 6.0.1 firmware is causing all the storm. Really, for some users, connecting to WiFi has been a pain.
Sure, there are a lot of forces that’s stopping users from accessing WiFi on their iOS devices, but let us focus on the solutions rather than the problems. Here are two solutions that may help:
Solution 1: One of the member at the Apple member has come up with a proxy tool that promises to fix the ongoing WiFi issues on iOS 6.0 / 6.0.1 devices. The whole process is quite simple: visit the site, register an account, check your email for instructions and configure your device accordingly. Once configured, you will also be able to access Wikipedia for three days, even if you are not connected to the Internet. The proxy server is located in Germany, and here’s what the owner has to say about the service:
I’m the operator of the proxy server located in Germany. I’m not collecting any private data. I made this service for some of my wi-fi-network customers with iOS 6 issues, they’re using it successfully.
Solution 2: The other solution, and probably what we recommend everyone, is to reset network on your iOS devices. This seem to have fixed the WiFi issue, and the whole process doesn’t even take more than a few minutes. Users, especially who own an iPhone 5, have confirmed that resetting network brings WiFi back to life. Let us know if this works for you.
Apple’s iOS 6.0 firmware, along with iOS 6.0.1, has been adopted by Apple users at a rapid pace. Reports suggest that over 30% of users are already on the new iOS 6.0 firmware — probably it’s the addition of over 200 new features that managed to spark the initial fascination of iOS owners, but the bitter fact is, the problems with iOS 6.0 overshadows its benefits.
