Got a launch day iPhone 6 128gb in space grey running on the latest ios 8.0.2 and having some problems with the wifi.

Sometimes the phone will fail to automatically connect to my router at home. When this happens I go into settings > wifi and noticed that the phone fails to find any hotspots.

The only way to solve this is to restart the phone =(

Is this a hardware problem or a known bug in 8.0.2?

Same issue here with iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 Wifi drops out cannot connect to any wifi network unless I restart the phone.

Seems like iOS Bug

I had the same issue with my plus. I ended using a Static IP, and it's been stable for a few days now.

I have this also, wifi drops off anywhere between 5 secs or 2mins. Have to toggle it back on constantly while using the phone. For example I've had to toggle it 3 times during writing the message

Don't know whether to bother going to my Apple Store appointment as the next update may fix this, anyone have any idea when the next update is? I don't really have time to go this weekend plus I'll loose my glass screen protector if they replace the handset. And even if they do replace it there's no guarantee it'll be any different.

Today for example my WIFI has been rock solid all day. Yesterday would barely stay connected for more than 10 secs.

Same problem here. Tried everything. Hard to connect. When it does it is slooooow. I thought it was my WiFi but my G3 is connected to the same network and it flies. I also have Bluetooth issues where it won't stay connected. I am going to return mine unfortunately. In was excited to get the device but it must go Sadly. Hopefully when 8.1 drops the problems will be resovled and I will return.
