Apple to Patch iPad WiFi Issue with Firmware Update
Apple today has confirmed that they are going to fix the WiFi issue which has been problematic for some iPad users ever since its launch. Users have been complaining about the WiFi connection on iPad doing some crazy things like not letting them join hotspots, and providing weak signal strength and so on. Apple earlier acknowledged the issue and provided some workarounds but that didn’t help many.
And now Apple is finally coming up with a new software update which would hopefully fix the whole WiFi dilemma. The update will include:
– Updating Wi-Fi router firmware – Using WPA or WPA2 wireless security – Adjusting screen brightness – Renewing IP address
Expect the update to come out soon. If you love your jailbroken iPad, it is advisable to stay away from this update as it might also patch the exploit which is used by Spirit to jailbreakiPadOS3.2. Also make sure that you have saved your SHSH blobs (Windows guide here, Mac OS X guide here) before the update is released. [via MacRumors]
