First Possible Major iOS 6 Bug Reported
How is iOS 6 working out for you? Many Apple customers are angry at this hour as they report a Wi-Fi connectivity problem in iOS 6. As such, folks have taken to Apple’s discussion pages to voice their concerns. The problem, which isn’t affecting everyone, occurs when a user attempts to connect to a Wi-Fi network. Instead of connecting, some users are being asked to login to the Apple website via mobile Safari, which obviously doesn't make sense. [caption id="attachment_339824" align="aligncenter" width="677"] iOS 6 - Possible Fix?[/caption] According to some, a quick solution is to clear Safari’s history on the iOS device, which is accomplished by going to Settings > Safari > Clear History and selecting “Clear History.” Additionally, deleting cookies and data from Safari may also help. Go Settings > Safari > Clear Cookies and Data. Finally, some have reported that the Wi-Fi issue goes away after a hard shutdown. This is achieved by pushing the iDevice’s hold button and home button at the same time until the iPhone or iPad reboots and you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. For those having the iOS 6 Wi-Fi problem, we suggest trying one of the solutions mentioned above and/or checking out Apple’s discussion board. UPDATE: It seems the issue was a problem with Apple, server side, according to The Verge. We'll let you know as we find out more about this, but the issue should no longer be persisting. Thanks to Adam for the tip!
