Just a thought, if you are still having problems after the update you may want to go to settings and remove your current wifi settings I think it's called forget this network. Then re enter your wifi settings again like new.

I'm not having any problems but was thinking could this help?

I'll try that, but my cellular network has been disabled as well. I still show having a cell signal, but when I try to connect to the internet it says I'm not subscribed to a cellular data plan. Very frustrating.

My wifi is working perfectly fine. Do I really need to update this?

replacement

I called Apple yesterday re a week wifi signal they told me to do a factory reset which I had already tried, so the Apple rep organized a replacement which is now 'in transit' . I was receiving a very poor wifi signal (one bar) when I was right beside router and wifi cut out completely when I left the room. After this update Wifi has slightly improved getting full reception in the room and a week one upstairs (same as iPad). My iPhone 5 still has a poor batt life and wifi seems to still be hit and miss so still going to switch to the replacement. Did anyone have poor wifi signal that was resolved by this update? wondering why sales rep didnt tell me that an update was on the way and if that didnt solve it then organise a replacement.

Love the new iOS 6.0.2. Had random wifi issues. Now all going well. At least safari and other apps. But at times the app downloads are still really slow.

Over all really happy with iOS 6.0.2.

For me yes but I still feel my iPhone 4S is much better in receiving wifi signal.

Since iOS 6 I've had horrible wifi problems on my third gen iPad. A lot of times it won't even connect or when it says it's connected everything loads slowly in Safari, or it doesn't load at all. I almost always stay connected to LTE because otherwise I get no signal. I know this is the correct forum, but any ideas if there is a fix for this, or am I the only one having this problem?

Finally an apple update that actually fixes things! I was wondering why my iPhone wifi was so much slower than on my iPad. Now it works great.

My facetime over cellular was enabled after the update but I was unable to complete a facetime call over cellular. Rebooted the phone and the facetime over cellular option was disabled and I couldn't enable it without changing my data plan.

You'll have to reboot eventually, but hold off as long as you can. I figured I might as well try a reboot since facetime wasn't working over cellular anyway, but I was a little disappointed when it came back on and the option was disabled again. Oh well.

6.0.2 Says for iPad Mini & iPhone 5

According to Apple it's apparently not for the iPhone 4 & 4S. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1621
Go figure.

This has fixed it for me and the WIFI seems to be stronger and it doesn't go off when the screen is locked.

I was going to - but after all the hype over the black model scratching and all that, I wasn't going to give mine up (it was perfect... it's still pretty good today).

But like you said, it might be the charger. I also noticed that the end of my usb is frayed after 2 months of normal usage. Trust me, I take good care of my things... this shouldn't be happening after 2 months.

That's unfortunate, because there is a widespread wifi issue with iPhone 4S models that were (unfortunately) "updated" to IOS 6/6.01. My phone, which had worked perfectly with wifi before the update from IOS 5, now is effectively a cellular data only device.

I have an Edimax Wifi Router (dual Band): BR-6475ND

On iOS 6.0.1 my iPhone couldn't detect any networks, whilst my iPad Mini could detect both bands (both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks). Then I went closer to the router (previously I was on 2nd storey). Even then my iP5 wouldn't detect any networks.

After 6.0.2 upgrade, my iP5 still can't detect any networks while i'm working on 2nd storey. (Note: no change on my iPad Mini, the wifi works just fine). And I descended to get closer to the router. At 2 meters away from the router, BAMM then my iP5 could detect the networks (both bands).

Is it just me, or there are others who experience that iPad Mini's wifi connection is much better than iP5's?

I thought 6.0.2 had sorted my issues, but last night I had the same thing where the wi-fi was connected but there was no throughput. I reset network settings - perhaps this is a necessary step - and will see how it goes. I have to say this is the biggest iPhone annoyance/issue I've ever experienced.

i'd put the crappiness down to the RAM or cache, as kept having to reboot for safari and twitter. hopefully this was the real problem as was gonna take it back to the shop.

build quality on my mini seems pretty low too, home button particularly coulda/shoulda/woulda waited for 2gen, but got study that's not gonna read it's self.

wonder why the buttons on iPad/Phone are on oposite sides...
