Apple Releases iPhone 5 Verizon Wi-Fi Fix

Submitted by on October 1, 2012 – 10:33 amNo Comment

Amid mostly positive reviews, the iPhone 5 has been receiving plenty of complaints in its first weeks. One in particular was hitting users where it hurts: in the wallet. Some iPhones running on the Verizon network were reportedly consuming cellular data even when hooked up to a Wi-Fi network. But Apple has released an update that should quickly fix this costly problem.

The tech giant is encouraging affected users to go to the “General-About” screen on the Settings page, and wait for a notification screen to pop up. After that, the phone just needs to be restarted. To confirm that the update has gone through, just check for “Verizon 13.1″ on the same page.

As annoying as this concern was, it still pales in comparison to the complaints over Apple’s new, bemoaned Maps app. CEO Tim Cook issued a rare apology on behalf of the company and vowed that improvements are coming, but little has happened yet.

Do you have an iPhone 5? What do you think of it so far?
