    Plain and simple is it hardware of software issue?

    Tried many of the workarounds to no avail. Speed testing my 5 and my iPad 3 next to my router my iphone shows Half the download and upload of my iPad.

    Should I just go swap my iphone 5 guys? Or is it a simple software issue? The thing is my Is my iPad is running ios6 and has no wi-fi issues. Makes me feel its hardware itself.

    It's almost impossible to have a stable connection on any public hotspot, so it's not my router that's for sure. Speedtest isn't inaccurate because my iPad and iPhone are the same distance from the router, my iPad is blazing fast 24mbs my iphone just 10mbs max..

    You should probably get that replaced. As long as you can display the problem they should let you. I got mine swapped for a different reason got better wifi on the second one. I didn't really think it had a problem, but it would often take a long time to start loading then do it really fast and most of the time would get one wifi bar, now I hardly ever get less than three.
