I wrote here about the iOS 6 WiFi bug that seemed particularly bad on the iPad Mini. Well, things haven’t improved, and many folks have been struggling with WiFi on their iPad Mini and iPhone 5 since release.
For me, I managed to work around everything, but then last week suddenly I couldn’t connect to my home WiFi network but the rest of my vast sea of devices were fine. A couple of calls and the iPad Mini was in a box headed back to Apple … now I wonder if all I needed was this update. For the sake of others in the same situation as me, I hope so.
According to this Knowledge Base Article, the update:
Fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi.
The update is available OTA (over the air) or as a download through iTunes. CultOfMac has links to the manual iTunes downloads, or just check your device. And you’ll need WiFi for the download … how ironic.
