Bug discovered on iOS Causes Certain Network Name to Permanently Disable WiFi on iPhone

With each new update, iOS has fixed dozens of bugs, but a dozen new bugs are discovered every month, and some of them are related to extremely important iPhone features like Wi-Fi.

In a loophole discovered by Carl Schou, he tries to join a wireless network and his iPhone’s Wi-Fi is permanently disabled – not even restarting the device or changing the network name fixes the problem, requiring the reset settings to be able to use Wi-Fi again (we teach you how to do this at the end of this article)

The issue was posted to Twitter in a video where Schou exposes it. The fault may be related to the use of the percent sign in the network name, which causes the system to misinterpret the letters after the sign.

Interestingly, the same problem has no effect on Android smartphones. Now that he’s been exposed to the world, it’s possible Apple will start work on a fix in the coming weeks – and knowing the Cupertino giant, it shouldn’t be long before a hotfix is ​​available.

If you have been one of the victims of this bug, your Wi-Fi may be turned off, but don’t despair! To turn iPhone Wi-Fi back on, just go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings. It should be noted that when resetting network settings, all preferences will be reset.
