Apple Says iOS 17.2 Will Fix Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues

The upcoming iOS 17.2 update should fix various Wi-Fi issues that some iPhone users have experienced since iOS 17 was released, according to iClarified.

iOS 17
In response to a bug report filed by the website, Apple said the first iOS 17.2 beta released last week addresses Wi-Fi connectivity issues, although the company did not provide any specific details. Some users have complained about slow Wi-Fi speeds and dropped connections, but it's unclear how widespread the issues are.

iOS 17.2 is expected to be released to the public in December, so there are still several weeks remaining until the update will be available to all users.

iOS 17.2 includes many new features and changes, including the promised Journal app, the ability for Apple Music subscribers to collaborate on playlists, a Translate option for the Action button on iPhone 15 Pro models, an iMessage Contact Key Verification security option, additional Weather and Clock widgets, and more.

I know ppl are upset that they're having these issues to begin with but glad to see Apple addressing them more frequently and working on fixes
Imagine having overheating or WiFi or any other big issue bugs, coming here to read appraisal for Apple taking 2 months to fix them.

Apple is like my old mechanic.

I brought my car in to fix the AC. When I got it back the AC was fixed but the trunk wouldn't lock anymore.

Then I brought it in to fix the lock. The lock was fixed but headlights wouldn't turn on anymore.

Usually they'd fix one thing and break three totally unrelated things, just like Apple.

Have definitely experienced several different types of wifi issues.
1. Simply not connecting to my known home network without manual intervention.
2. Show connected in the wifi settings but see cellular bars at the top with no wifi signal and pages not loading.
3. Voice command from sleep “Siri, turn on the living room lights” for example yields “your devices aren’t responding” yet if I queue Siri with the power button it works immediately. But I can try to wake with my voice multiple times in a row and nothing.
