The wifi indicator in the status bar shows that I only have 1 tiny bar of signal, or bad wifi signal. It shows this no matter how close I get to my router. In the Settings app, it says I have great wifi signal. Anyone else also seeing this?

I noticed this yesterday when switching on wifi.

Had the same issue this weekend, must be a bug. I had to reboot the phone to get it to display full bars.

I had the same issue with my iPhone 5 on my network at home yesterday and at work today.

As with SR71, a reboot shows a more accurate signal indicator.
