Don’t Update That iPhone or iPad! Wi-Fi Bug Returns in iOS 4.3.3

Internet scuttlebutt has it that the ‘Randomly drops Wi-Fi’ bug from last year has reared its ugly head once again. It seems that several users are having disconnects after upgrading to 4.3.3. ReadWriteWeb has compiled a list of user’s complaints on this issue:

ipad_nowifiiPhone 4 says it connects to the Wi-Fi network, but the Wi-Fi icon never appears

Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting and reconnecting on its own

Can no longer use Wi-Fi at all unless within close proximity to the router

Can't connect to Wi-Fi at all on device running 4.3.3, but devices running 4.3.1 have no trouble on same network

Wi-Fi won't work, and resetting network settings doesn't fix

Wi-Fi shows signal, but device can't connect to the Internet

Of course, I’m stuck here on the back end of a Blogger outage, so who knows when this will go up. While we’re on the topic, don’t update ANYTHING when the patches first come out. Unless there is a problem I know I need fixed, I usually wait a week or two for reports to come out and bug fixes to be issued. If things are running fine, it could be argued that there is no reason to update at all.
