Apple, along with the iOS 14.7 update, fixed a bug with disabling Wi-Fi on the iPhone

Apple recently released the fifth beta of iOS 14.7 with the number 18G5063a, which doesn’t seem to bring anything new but fixes the bug.

The bug was discovered a few weeks ago. As it turned out, when connected to a network with some strange names, the iPhone completely turned off the Wi-Fi module and refused to connect to other networks.

For example, Carl Schou said on social media that as a result of an attempt to connect his iPhone XS with iOS 14.4.2 to a home Wi-Fi network called% p% s% s% s% s% n, the smartphone “broke “. To reconnect, neither rebooting nor changing the network name helped – only resetting to factory settings.

Now if you are using iOS 14.7, when you connect to the weirdly named Wi-Fi, your iPhone will work as expected. iOS 14.7 is already available to developers and public beta testers, but no public release date has yet been announced.
