If you own an Apple device like the iPhone 5, iPad Mini or any other with iOS 6 on it, then you might have already seen that there is an update to iOS 6.0.2, to fix an issue with Wi-Fi.

There have been a lot of people complaining about the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S suffering problems with Wi-Fi. However today is the first time that Apple has addressed it and they have offered a solution, by way of an update. The download is 983.2MB for the iPhone 5, and it is thought that it will be of a similar size for other devices that run iOS 6.

The update to iOS 6.0.2 does contain fixes to bugs and provides multiple improvements, according to Apple. However the only fix that is listed is for Wi-Fi. The Apple security update page shows the updates for many devices from 2011 to 2012, however at the moment, this update is not showing up yet.

iOS 6 has been plagued with issues since its release. The worst of which was Apple Maps. Google have now released an official Google Maps for devices running iOS. There have also been problems with performance reported for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, with iOS 6.01 installed. Readers have also complained about battery life following the update in October. However even after completing the update which is offered from today, some users have still said that they are seeing issues with their battery life.

It does seem that Wi-Fi problems are not affecting all users, however thousands of people have reported the issue since the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 rolled out in September.
