Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider, “A newly updated support document from Apple explicitly states that the iPad maker will issue a software update to address the issues. It does not, however, provide a timeline for the planned fix. ‘A very small number of iPad users have experienced issues with Wi-Fi connectivity,’ the document reads. ‘This article outlines workarounds for these issues. Apple will also address remaining Wi-Fi connectivity issues with a future iPad software update.’
In the interim, Apple offers a number of potential fixes for the issue:
• Verify your Wi-Fi router firmware is up to date.
• If your router’s security encryption is WEP, try WPA or WPA2, as WEP can cause intermittent disconnects with the iPad which requires retyping a password.
• Make sure the iPad screen brightness is not at the lowest level.
• Obtain a new IP address by going into Settings, Wi-Fi, accessing the settings of the current network, and choosing “Renew Lease.”
Finally, if these steps do not work, users are recommended to try turning Wi-Fi off and back on.
Oliver reports, “If none of the above methods address connectivity issues, users are asked to contact Apple support.”
