The new iPad running on iOS6 has been facing some serious issues with WiFi Connectivity.
Apple released the Developer Beta for the next major version of the iOS, the iOS6. The new OS comes with loads of new features and many of the developers (including me) have installed the beta version of iOS6 and now, looks like all those who installed it on the new iPad now have problems with accessing the WiFi network.
The new iPad running iOS6 beta connects to the WiFi without any issue, but then, it does not access it whatsoever we do! Trying to open up Safari or App Store or whatever app in that case, does not allow the user to access the internet via WiFi network. This is a very huge bug that’s affecting the developers from exploring the new iPad running on iOS6.
But temporarily, to access internet via the new iPad running on iOS6, I’ve been using two methods.
- Use your iPhone to tether the internet via Bluetooth and access it with the iPad
- Tether (Share) your WiFi network via Bluetooth on your Mac and connect it to the iPad.
Both these ways work. But still, it would be really good if Apple actually issues the Fix for this right away. I’m sure the Apple iOS team has shipped with the restriction they usually have at Apple, which is restricting the iOS device to access the internet only in Apple Network.
I’ll keep you posted about the progress pretty soon!
