Apple recently released iOS 14.7 beta update for the testers and developers. Last month we reported that a new bug appeared on iOS that disabled the Wi-Fi permanently. This new update fixes that bug and solved the issue.
The new beta version is also more stable than the one released previously and brings bug fixes and stableness in iOS. Apple also resolved the Wi-Fi bug that appeared last month as many users and researchers complaint about the issue.
Last month, it was revealed that connecting to a Wi-Fi with a specific name can cause Wi-Fi to permanently disable on iPhone.
iOS 14.7 beta fixes Wi-Fi bug:
As discussed earlier, the issue was caused when the user tries to connect a Wi-Fi with a specific name “%p%s%s%s%s%n” on an iPhone. It will then crash the iPhone’s ability to connect to Wi-Fi.
But with the latest beta update, Apple has fixed this issue as found out by a Youtuber Zollotech. This could also mean that this bug fix is coming to every iPhone user with the stable iOS 14.7 updates. The stable update will roll out to everyone in a few weeks.
The issue was revealed by some Twitter user last month and according to him it can permanently disable iPhone’s Wi-Fi and the user will not be able to connect to any network. Hackers can benefit from this bug as they can use “%p%s%s%s%s%n” this network name and disable anyone’s Wi-Fi. It means that if a network name has a % sign then it is dangerous for the iPhone. But if users don’t connect to a network with special characters or % sign, they are out of danger. This bug only affects iPhones that are connected to a network with a % sign.
Some users say that it could disable Wi-Fi permanently, many users say that when they reset the network setting the issue was resolved.
The updated iOS 14.7 along with iPad OS 14.7 is still in the beta phase and is available for testers and developers only as of now.
