With the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS, Apple totally depended on Intel for its modems that are used for wireless connectivity. And since the launch of these new iPhone models, the owners have been complaining about Cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity issues every now and then. Apple has been quick to fix these issues by pushing small point updates. But, it looks like the latest iOS 12.1.1 update has brought its own shares of connectivity issues.
Most of the users that are experiencing connectivity issue after iOS 12.1.1 software update is on Reliance Jio’s network in India.
Apple Support on Twitter is suggesting affected users update their carrier settings after the iOS 12.1.1 software update. This seems to be resolving the issues for some while the others still continue to experience the issue.
I am genuinely pissed with the latest iOS 12.1.1 it completely destroyed my wifi and cellular connectivity. Like, the phone keeps disconnecting me from my wifi and prompting me that my password is incorrect. Like why? To think that my phone is just almost 2 weeks old.
