The latest iOS update continues to bring problems for several iPhone users, this time concerning wireless connectivity.
An iPhone 4S owner has reached out to Apple Support Communities to detail a Wi-Fi problem since updating to iOS 6.1.3.
"Hi! I just got a new Iphone 4s back from repair, a new replacment phone. So I updated the hardware to the new IOS 6.1.3 and after that I cant activate my WIFI, the WIFI button is greyed, so the WIFI is unavailable. So what should I do? Send my 3days old Iphone to service agian or what? I personaly think it the new IOS 6.1.3 so please help me."
The original poster, PatricJuel, was directed to a solution dating back Oct. 3, 2012. Titled "iOS: Wi-Fi or Bluetooth settings grayed out or dim," the case indulged on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices that are unable to connect to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in Settings.
The solution provided was:
1. Verify that Airplane Mode is off.
2. Restart your iOS device
3. Update your iOS device
4. Reset Network Settings, by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
5. Restore your iOS device in iTunes.
Unfortunately for PatricJuel, the solution did not fix the issue.
"It doesn't work! I already restored it to factory settings and all (3 times) but it still remain the same? Do you guys think that apple will fix the 6.1.3 wifi bug or what?"
While reassuring that there is no Wi-Fi bug in iOS 6.1.3, future replies tried to help PatricJuel, but ultimately led to similar stories and battery drainage issues.
The above-mentioned solution was successful for some, but it didn't stop Apple customers from expressing their disappointment, regret, or frustration about the recent update.
The battery drainage issue is a topic Latinos Post covered yesterday. A resolution for the battery drainage was provided:
1. Go to settings.
2. Mail, contacts, calendars.
3. Go into iCloud and turn all switches to OFF one by one make sure you save all to iPhone though.
4. Then go to each other mail account and repeat this procedure again making sure you select keep on iPhone not the delete option.
5. Once they're all turned to off check your calendar to see if everything is missing off it and then you need to do a hard reset by holding the home button and the on/off button until the phone turns itself off.
6. Once it's come back on go back into settings and mail and turn each switch (or each you want) back to ON.
7. Then make sure all your apps are closed lock the phone and leave it for 30 minutes and then check the battery. Hopefully it shouldn't have dropped at all.
