Apple in a nutshell is losing a little of our faith each year, do not get us wrong Apple has some of the most beautiful products on the market and we cannot doubt that, bring it back a notch or two and talk about the software and this is where we are at the edge of our seat pondering on going full out with Android. The intent to change to Android has come from many of our readers emailing us asking if we have had problems since installing the new iOS 6.0.2 update, we can say yes we have had nothing but issues with WiFi since we updated on our iPhone 5, and we have resorted to using the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 so that we can use strong WiFi signal when not at the laptop or Computer.
Apple did promise they would bring a new software update that would fix the WiFi issue on the iPhone 5, what we would like to know is “When is that update coming because it was not within iOS 6.0.2?” Apple stated that the new software “fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi” get real Apple because this is not the case and we are not the only ones complaining.
We have noticed that Apple has not given us details on the literal Wi-Fi bug that has been fixed within this update, we have the iPhone 5 and can tell you that when we was in a WiFi zone or in peoples houses we had to use 3G because we could not get on the net even though it showed on the iPhone 5 full signal strength. So yes we installed the new iOS 6.0.2 update hoping it would address the problem, but in fact it has made it worse.
We installed the new iOS 6.0.2 update OTA (General > Software Update in Settings) on the iPhone 5 and was so happy for this new update, well happy until we found out it is a pathetic update that has made it ten times worse, when at home and connected to the wireless network we could get signal in all rooms and even walk down the garden, not anymore because soon as we leave the back door WiFi disappears and we have to use 3G.
A few of our readers believe that the new iOS 6.0.2 update was not only for fixing WiFi but was implemented to cover security holes to stop the iPhone 5 Jailbreak everyone is hoping will release, we do not believe this for one minute but some think so. We have had numerous readers mention that since they installed the new update they have had nothing but problems with their batteries draining faster than ever on the iPhone 5, we done a test and charged the iPhone 5 to 100% before going to bed and in the morning it was on 98% and that is with no apps running in the background, since installing the new iOS 6.0.2 update it shows in the morning 89%.
Apple listen carefully please, RELEASE iOS 6.1 and sort out these issues.
If the new 6.1 releases and the WiFi problem is no better than iOS 6.0.2 then you may have a utter predicament on your hands with iPhone 5 users making a change to a rival. We have to use the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 when away from our laptop and computer, so if we have resorted to Android how many consumers will opt for the same path.
Please do let us know if you are having any problems at all since installing the iOS 6.0.2 update.
