    Seems like the wifi range of the iPhone 6 is pretty poor.

    I have it side by side with the iPhone 5 and 5s and its picking up networks that the 6 can't.

    Tried resetting network settings etc, but i think it has pretty useless range.

    I know theres plenty of wifi problems with iPhone 6 and iOS8 but anybody else having this limited range problem?

    THanks

    Its not just from one specific router. iv tried it on a number of routers now and its always got a much shorter range than the iPhone 5, if not android phones too!

    Gonna have to take it to store, thought it may have been a common problem. evidently not.

    My range is better. I actually have a good signal at home when I'm upstairs now. Router is downstairs. My iPhone 5 went back and forth between LTE and WIFI, but now I stay connected to the router without an issue.

    Range on my 6+ is better than my note 2 so I'm satisfied.
