I’ve been running the new (second) Gold Master build of iOS 4.2 since it was released (for developers) last Friday. The main reason this second gold master (GM) build is said to have been released was to address WiFi issues being experienced by many users of the original GM build.
I was one of those who had intermittent but severe WiFi problems with that original GM build. At least once a day my iPad would show full WiFi signal strength but would lose all connectivity – Mail, Safari, and any other apps that needed online connection would not have any. A quick toggling off and on of WiFi would generally fix it, but it was still a nuisance.
It’s been over three days with the new GM build now, and I have not seen the WiFi issue a single time. So far so good for me on this issue. Hopefully other users of the new build are seeing the same, so that we can see a public release of 4.2 very soon.
What are you all seeing? If you’ve been running the two GM builds, has the WiFi issue been resolved with the new build? (if you were seeing it before)
