The release of the iPhone 5 has exacerbated the issue that Apple users have been experiencing with Wi-Fi connectivity. People using iPhone4S had problems with Wi-Fi connectivity since the phoneâ€™s release last year. Users have resorted to various fixes but Apple was unable to offer a real solution to the problem.
Shortly after the iPhone 5â€™s release, some people were already complaining about problems with Wi-Fi connectivity, specifically with having the feature grayed out on their devices. The problem was traced to an Apple Web Page that the iOS checks out to make sure that the Wi-Fi does not require a login. Apparently, that Web Page was down. The page was soon brought back up, presumably by Apple, thereby restoring Wi-Fi connectivity to the users.
