Users being told not to upgrade to iOS 6

One of the issues that the latest edition of iOS was supposed to fix, is still in fact an issue. The iOS 6.0.1 update added a minor slew of enhancements and patches for the software, but one of the most annoying was a glitch that prevented users from being able to access WiFi networks.

For some reason, users with an Apple device running iOS version 6.0 suddenly began encountering times when they simply had no WiFi access, even if they were well within range of an access point. The WiFi option just appeared grayed out, inaccessible to users.

This issue seems to be most common with users on the iPhone 4S, but it has been reported as being a problem on any product with the iOS 6 update. Incidentally, this was never a problem with the iOS 5 software or any of its iterations.

The fact that such a simple issue as the inability to access WiFi is still plaguing the iPhone and iPad
 is a bit troubling, but you know Apple. The company's legions of fans are willing to sit through any inconvenience just because it's an Apple product.

Apple's official recommendation to affected users is to simply reboot and retry - the typical suggestion to anyone who experiences any sort of difficulty with an electronic device.

Some software experts and unofficial message board forums have told users that they should simply just not upgrade their device and keep running their version of iOS 5 until this problem is officially fixed.
