Poor battery life and WiFi issues after iPhone 1.1.1 update: Potential fix

Poor battery life and WiFi issues after iPhone 1.1.1 update: Potential fix

We've received several notes from readers who are having the following two problems, in conjunction, after applying the iPhone 1.1.1 battery update:

  • Reduced battery capacity
  • Issues connecting to specific wireless networks

In some cases, when these issues occur simultaneously, the issue appears to be repeated, failed attempts to automatically join certain wireless networks. The solution for some is as follows:

  1. Navigate to Settings, then select Wi-Fi
  2. Tap the arrow next to each listed Wi-Fi network and tap Forget this Network
  3. Go back to the Wi-Fi screen and manually join the desired network

Failing that, turn Wi-Fi off, then back on using the Wi-Fi settings screen and re-apply the aforementioned steps.

If you are experiencing poor battery life or WiFi issues after the 1.1.1 update, please let us know.
