Reports on Apple’s forums are coming in with users claiming WiFi woes when upgrading to Apple’s iOS 5, and the latest iOS 5.0.1 software update doesn’t seem to be helping matters either. Devices affected include the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, and potentially the iPod Touch. Users are reporting, according to Engadget, either a degradation of signal strength or WiFi reception, to intermittent total loss of WiFi connectivity.
One user was able to revert to iOS 4.3 and notes that the WiFi issues had gone away under the older mobile OS software, but quickly returned when he upgraded back to iOS 5, suggesting that the issue is rooted in software than hardware.
Similarly, Apple’s rival in the mobile space, Samsung, had experienced a software glitch that killed WiFi connectivity in a software update for the company’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 model, forcing Samsung to pull the software update.
