The latest version of Apple's new operating system for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch, iOS 6.0.1, is still giving some Apple device users Wi-Fi fits.You'd think by now, seven weeks after Apple released iOS 6, the technology giant would have fixed all this major mobile operating system's Wi-Fi networking problems. Wrong. Customers are still reporting that Wi-Fi is completely inaccessible with a grayed out Wi-Fi option even after the recent 6.0.1 update. As before, this problem seems to strike Apple iPhone 4S users far more often than other users. Any Apple device running iOS 6.x may be vulnerable though.Read more »
Since the release of the iOS 6.0.1 update some users have posted many issues in forums online. While I haven’t had issues with my iPhone 5 after the update, sadly many users have not enjoyed the same experience and while the software has been out since the start of the month, Apple has yet to comment on the problems that some users say they are experiencing.
iOS 6.0.1 update brings new issues to iPhone, iPad & iPod touch
The list of problems with the update is growing reports Product-Reviews. This means there could be a pattern that affects thousands of users of the iPad, iPod touch and iPhone.
Users saw problems after the update to iOS6.0.1 which includes the battery of the device being poor, Wi-Fi issues, and people are having problems connecting to cellular networks. The battery life problem seems to affect the iPhone 4S more frequently and it could be that this is an on-going problem, as it was mentioned before the update. Wi-Fi issues have also been on-going and Apple have attempted to remedy this issue, however for some people it is still as bad, if not worse, following iOS 6.0.1.Read more »
iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users breathed a sigh of relief when Apple released the iOS 6.0.1 update, but they are now quickly disappointed after learning the WiFi issues were still not fixed in this new firmware.
Apple promised its users that iOS 6.0.1 “improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.” But there are other WiFi related problems plaguing the iOS users, such as:
WiFi option is greyed out and disabled.
No WiFi syncing with iTunes.
iOS 6 disables WiFi automatically on Sleep mode.
Cannot connect to WiFi network.
It’s a sorry sight to see Apple forum filled with painful stories from iOS device owners. Users have reported that they constantly running through these WiFi and networking problems after moving to iOS 6.0.1 firmware. As I was browsing through these pages, I figured out I might as well let you know that you are not alone. There are thousands of people complaining, and some folks seem to have fixed the problem by moving to Android smartphones.Read more »

Even better, unlike FastSn0w, you won’t need to have your 42b3 SHSH blobs saved in order for Unlock-Jailbreak.net to work. One thing is for sure, this version of Unlock-Jailbreak.net will unlock your iPhone to be able to use it on any GSM network worldwide. The jailbreak is untethered and doesn’t need iOS 6.0.1 SHSH blobs to be saved like iPhone Dev Team’s Redsn0w 0.9.7, which is currently available for beta testing.Read more »
