Ditto. Was fine before, now there's just no data on the wifi connection until I toggle Airplane mode on and off.

First time I had and issue with wifi was Saturday. I had to hard set the 5 to make wifi work.

Updating in New Zealand is never a problem it just works. I'm so please we are in our time zone.

Come to think of it I'm glad I'm in a country which bans all guns except a single shot riffle and the riffle has to lock away separate from the bolt and ammunition when not in use. Carrying knives is banned too. Our Police don't carry guns as well.

No wonder I had trouble connecting to my hotspot from my Mini...

I hope this solves the problem I was having with my iPhone 5 at work. Sometimes it would just connect to the WiFi signal but wouldn't bring up the log in page at all. I would always have to restart my iPhone.

I just updated it though. So I will try to see if the problem exists or is solved tomorrow.

3/4 of your post has nothing to do with the topic..

Mine wouldn't have a bad connection on. 5Ghz, now it's fine.

If I was having wifi issues the last thing I would do is try an OTA software update. Double on the first day when everyone is going to be trying to get it and jam up the servers etc

Does it fix the iPhone 5, iOS 6, FaceTime... "bad connection" bug? Only happens with that combination of device and OS.

Interesting. My WiFi was (and still is) a bit sluggish. But this update wiped out my cellular APN settings. Even after putting back the settings, it can only connect to 3G. Edge does not work. Tried a hard reset, didn't work.

Thanks for the chill pill. I don't know why but this bug drives me absolutely crazy. And by the way it hasn't been fixed with this update.

Do it on the iPhone, not your computer. Computer iTunes update will download the complete software. However, in past updates, I've found that installing from the computer was more reliable, even though it took much longer. In other words, I did the iPhone update over the air, had problems, and then reinstalled with iTunes and problems went away.

I got a strange issue with 6.0.2. I updated via iTunes on my iP5, tethered. it worked fine, no issues.

However- Hours later, I went to text an image over non-imessage on 4G and my phone went into an auto-reboot and I couldn't do anything. I turned off a few times and a hard-reset a couple times. It didn't fix it. It randomly started to work again?

I haven't seen this issue before but it must be part of 6.0.2.

incoming antennagate redux!

Joking, well, sorta... My iP4 on 3G used to get full bars at home and my iPhone 5 on 4G only gets 2-3 bars and LTE only 1 bar. I know 4G and LTE are different bands and I think there isn't a nearby LTE tower. I just get crap reception on my phone.

download it from iTunes rather OTA? I always download with itunes cause I'm always worried if I update while I'm out if it freezes out my phone.

I too always download with iTunes because it's safer.

Yea I have tried many times to do this update and it errors out every time and that is in itunes. Very frustrating for me but I hear the update brings new problems to some so maybe it's just as well. I'm gonna stop trying for a day or two.

Apparently this is fixed for me as well

This issue existed from the day one. Even I was able to get very good reception from my iPhone 4S but iPhone 5 could not pickup Wifi signals. Hope this fixes battery life as well.

After this, I am able to see improvements in WiFi reception.

This is only for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, right? I have neither device - does that mean this update does not apply to me?
