Wifi Signal

Hi all

I have an ip5 and for some reason my wifi signal on the phone has been very weak.

I tried a reset on the connection and that didn't work. When in trying to connect on the wifi menu, it shows full wifi signal.

I've also checked my iPad and MBA and both have got stronger signal.

Anyone has any ideas?

Many thanks.

Thanks.

Yep most up to date.

Unfortunately I can't as I'm in a hotel at the moment. Checking the signal on my Mac and iPad in the same location, my phone is only showing a bar whilst my Mac and iPad shows full signal.

This is weird...

Check again at other locations like a Starbucks and again at home. If you feel the WiFi signal strength is still an issue then bring it to an Apple Store and tell them about your comparisons and such. If there is really an issue you should be able to get a warranty replacement on the phone.

Probably wasn't a problem with signal but rather what the OS was reporting the signal as.
