Wi-Fi issues continue to hamper OS X users despite updates

Fred O'Connor | Jan. 30, 2015
Apple's efforts this week to remedy the Wi-Fi connectivity issues plaguing many OS X users produced mediocre results, judging by comments left in Apple's support forum.

Unlike with Mac OS, Apple has yet to indicate that iOS 8 may have a bug that wrecks the Wi-Fi capabilities of iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. Apple released its latest mobile OS update, labelled 8.1.3, on Tuesday, but the release notes didn't mention a Wi-Fi fix.

Instead, the update reduced the amount of storage space required to perform an update and resolved an issue around some users being unable to enter their Apple ID password for Messages and FaceTime, among other fixes.

Users who hoped the update would fix their Wi-Fi issues faced disappointment after installing the software.

"I did the update to 8.1.3 and it made no difference on the WiFi issue," said a person who installed the update on Tuesday.

"Upgraded to 8.1.3, no discernible improvement, still poor wifi connection," wrote another person on Wednesday.

Apple didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.
