    - you have music playing, wifi or bluetooth on
    - open up Camera
    - music will stop playing and wifi icon on status bar will disappear, but you still have internet no problem
    - go to settings, wifi, turn wifi off, you see no wifi icon on status bar (normal), turn wifi on, you will NOT see wifi icon on status bar like you'd expect, but your wifi connection is connected ok, no problem. the only problem is that the icon disappears because you open Camera while wifi (or bluetooth) + music are being used
    ( - if you have only Music being used, no wifi, open camera music will still keep playing
    - the bluetooth icon never disappear but wifi icon does)

    a reboot can bring you your wifi icon back. after the reboot just remember never open the camera app :eek:

    not sure what apple is doing, this is really a problem that i never thought it would even exist

    I could not reproduce this error, so it seems to either be an anomaly or limited to your device/OS.

    Halfway between the Equator and North Pole
    Nor could I. Music continues to play. Now, with the camera open, you're not going to see the WiFi icon because of the flash on/off button.

    Close the camera and it's back. Turned WiFi off and on again in the settings, no issues.
