Reports of iOS 4.3.3 Causing WiFi Problems For iPhone and iPad

Since the release of iOS 4.3.3 into the wild, Apple’s support forums have been lighting up with reports of WiFi connectivity issues for both iPhone and iPad users, reports RWW.

The issue is similar to one experienced by many iPad owners around the release of the original hardware last year – users report that the iPhone or iPad claim to have connected to a WiFi network, but no WIFi icon appears and no data is received or transmitted.

The iPad issue was resolved (or simply went away) after an iOS software update. Is it possible iOS 4.3.3 reintroduced it, and somehow managed to make it spread to iPhones too?

It’s worth noting that a recent poll of this writer’s Twitter followers hasn’t yielded any reports of issues, though that’s obviously not to say the problem doesn’t exist.

CultOfMac has put together a list of possible fixes should you experience the problem yourself, ranging from ‘forgetting the WiFi network’ in settings to resetting network settings. Last time this issue raised its ugly head it was speculated the reason was an problem with encryption, so perhaps changing your encryption settings may yield results, at least temporarily.

Fingers crossed iOS 4.3.4 fixes this for everyone!

    There is an error too that causes the screen to detect a touch on the surface without touching it, makes you open applications or select the things you do not want helplessly.

    There are also lots of problems installing applications and wireless connection is poor.
