Still Plagued By iOS 6.0.1 WiFi Issues?

Apple announced iOS 6.0.1 – the update that was supposed to fix Wi-Fi bugs that plagued iOS 6. Unfortunately, several users – including me – face WiFi issues in iOS 6.0.1. We did a post on fixing iOS 6 WiFi issues earlier, and it appears that pretty much the same applies to the new version.

It’s kind of bad that Apple hasn’t yet been able to address Wi-Fi issues on iOS. This is specifically a software issue; what’s tantalizing is that users who had no issues with iOS 6 are now facing Wi-Fi issues on iOS 6.0.1. That’s the hardest part.

Tips to Fix Wi-Fi Issues in iOS 11

Let’s take a look at what can possibly be a solution to this persistent problem.

#1. Wi-Fi Channel

For iPad users, the Wi-Fi issue could possibly be a reason for the channels in their network settings. Macintoshhowto’s post on changing the Channel number on your wireless network appears to have worked well for several users. The post discusses why the Channel thing is important and how it works.

The idea is basically to change the Channel to 5 or 6 where the signal is stronger and thus, more receivable. Note that this may also work for users with Wi-Fi issues on their iPhone. This hasn’t quite helped us through.

#2. Network Reset

A network reset has always worked for me. But then, I’ve done it three times already.

Every time I’ve reset the network settings on the iPhone, Wi-Fi seems to work fine after a reboot. After a long while, it falls down again. But maybe it works for you; here’s how:

iOS 6 Reset Network Settings

  • Go to Settings.
  • Tap on General.
  • Scroll down and tap Reset.
  • And now tap on Reset Network Settings.

Once you reset the network setting, you might have to reboot your iPhone once to get the Wi-Fi up and running again.

#3. Auto-Proxy

Remotely, a few users have suggested that this method works. I don’t really know how this works (if it does) but just in case:

iOS 6 Wifi HTTP Proxy Settings

  • Go to Settings.
  • Tap on Wi-Fi.
  • If the list shows the network you are supposed to be connected to, tap on the Blue icon.
  • Scroll down and where it says HTTP Proxy, tap on “Auto.”

You should try this when the Wi-Fi works; hopefully, this should stop the intermittent disconnection.

#4. Update/Restore

This is not a solution at all; it’s in doubt somewhere, the update didn’t go right and doing it again might help you restore Wi-Fi functionality to your iPhone. You are not advised to restore your device for intermittent Wi-Fi issues, but only when the problem gets very serious like when the Wi-Fi never works.

  • Backup all data before your Update/Restore.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Tap on General.
  • Scroll down to tap on Restore and then tap on Reset All Settings.
  • Now connect your iPhone to iTunes.
  • Click Update OR Restore (Restore from backup if you’ve got iTunes backup.)

Hopefully, this should solve the issue, but there’s no guarantee for the moment.
