Not long ago, a flaw appeared in iOS that caused the naming of Wi-Fi networks to completely disable network connectivity on users’ iPhones.
And according to a new discovery, in the latest beta 5 of iOS 14.7 released yesterday, Apple seems to have fixed this bug.
This Wi-Fi bug was first mentioned last month. Essentially, a security researcher has discovered that certain network names can completely disable an iPhone’s Wi-Fi connectivity as well as other features like AirDrop. In some cases, the problem can be fixed by resetting the iPhone’s network settings in the Settings app, but it’s not always successful.
According to YouTuber Zollotech, who first discovered the changes in the iOS 14.7 beta update, if you update to the latest version of the iOS operating system, when connecting to one of the Wi-Fi names has causing previous errors like (“%p%s%s%s%s%n”) Your iPhone is still working normally, without the same error as before.
iOS 14.7 is currently available to developers and public beta testers, but it’s still unclear when it will be officially released to users. However, with iOS 15 due to be released next September, it is highly likely that the final update of the iOS operating system will likely appear in the next few weeks. Wait and watch it!
