    Does anyone else have this problem? I am on an iPhone 5s. It works for a bit then the signal drops and then I'm on my cellular. I've done clean installs, reset the router, iOS 7 still works, but I feel like this issue should have been cleared up in this newest beta. Idk if I'm the only one. Not sure if this is hardware related. I don't think I can go into an Apple store or call Apple and see if they can help me. I'm just checking to see if this is happening to other people. I don't know what else to do here.

    Restart your Wi-Fi router?

    Have you tried resetting network settings on your phone?

    yup. done that lots of times as well. i appreciate the help though. someone is actually helping. i've tried all the main basic ones, that's why it worries me it might be hardware.

    Indeed, same with the iPad Air here - WiFi will die after anything from a few minutes to a couple hours. It's fixed with a restart, and that doesn't take very long, but still, yes, a bit disappointing to see the problem hasn't yet been addressed. It's a tough life. =:/

    (Cellular data appears to be unaffected)

    Does this mean it happened to you in the earlier betas?

    Did you try forgetting the network yet?

    Doesn't resetting network settings take care of that?

    It's supposed to, but because that didn't work and this is a beta I'd try it to see if the results are different. Kinda like brightness not working from the control center.

    I've had the same problem in beta 4 with dropping wifi. Nothing helps. I've reset the router, forgot the network, reset network settings, etc. I've given up and will wait for it to be fixed hopefully.

    Same issue here on my iPad mini. Noticed it since b3, still present in b4. iPad can work for hours without issues, sometimes it will disconnect many times an hour. My hunch is that a bug is causing the wifi or possibly the whole networking stack to crash.

    Sometimes it comes back on its own, sometimes it requires switching airplane mode on and off.

    I tried a full network settings reset to see if that helped but no luck.
