iOS 6 Wi-Fi Problems Still Plague Some Users

Fixed? No not really....
Ever since iOS 6 was released I’ve been hearing from readers who are having problems with Wi-Fi on the iPhone 4S and iPad. And it seems that iOS 6.0.1 hasn’t fixed the problem.

It’s hard to get a proper fix on the problem. For some users, the option to enable Wi-Fi is completely grayed-out, while others are able to turn on Wi-Fi but are unable to connect to a network.

Some also claim that the problem affects the ability to use Bluetooth, with the option disable completely for some, and others unable to connect to devices.

A 148 page thread over on Apple’s support forum  has generated a number of possible fixes. Some claim that totally wiping their iDevice and then reinstalling iOS fixed the problems, while others say that resetting network settings (Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings). For those who can enable Wi-Fi but not connect, changing the HTTP Proxy to “Auto” (Settings > Wi-Fi > [click on the blue arrow next to your Wi-Fi network]) may work.


  1. Thank you for this blog. I love it. It tickles me to read frothing-at-the-mouth Apple-haters and their irrational, reality-free rants. Keep up the, um, good work!

  2. Irrational... seriously? Most Apple fans hate Apple you moron. Apple suckery is real and very much justified. That's one reason they no longer dominate anything and the stock is droping.

  3. What exactly is the definition of an Apple Fan, if most of them hate Apple? Then, what do you call people who actually like Apple, "non-fans"?

  4. A look at Apple's stock price history will show that it periodically runs up to a peak and then backs off. Apple still gained something ridiculous like 50% in 2012. This latest drop does not indicate the beginning of the end. Apple will almost certainly report excellent sales and profits for the holiday quarter, and the stock will resume its ascent.
