Apple debuted iOS 17 in September 2023 and since then, it has seen mixed reviews from users claiming it as one of the best while others are battling the various issues targeting a subset of the users. One such issue is around Wi-Fi connectivity and speeds that have plagued iPhone users after upgrading to iOS 17. Seems like finally, we can expect an update that exterminates this issue.

Apple is working on the next iterative update called iOS 17.1.2 (at least internally). The update is poised as a successor to iOS 17.1.1 which failed to resolve the Wi-Fi connectivity and poor speeds issues even when the Cupertino-based giant did all it could to fix the issue.

The iOS 17.1.2 is poised to address the Wi-Fi issues although the release date isn’t available. We are anticipating the update to drop by iPhones next week. This is because the incremental iOS 17.2 is expected to drop by December giving Apple a small window to shoot the update in place.

iOS 17.1.2 won’t just fix the Wi-Fi issue but will bring a few more bug fixes and features onboard. As usual, the rollout will begin as soon as the update arrives and if you have automatic updates enabled, the phone should install it right away. Users are prompted to install it or they can go to Settings >> General >> Software Update >> Automatic Updates >> if iOS 17.1.2 is available then ‘Download’.

Talking about iOS 17.2, the incremental update has been in beta for a month now. It is anticipated to arrive in mid-December and will bring features such as Translate option for the Action button and spatial video recording on iPhone 15 Pro models. It will bring the ability to collaborate on playlists with iPhone 15 Pro models among others.
