Bullshit. The internet would be alight if it was happening to thousands of users. 6.1.3 has been out for ages too so why have you only just updated? If it's a new phone, take it to an Apple store, they'll fix it for you by either resetting the phone or swapping it out if it's faulty.

It's a well known issue, it's been happening since iOS 6 and is not to limited to 6.1.3!

I have a 4S and mine has been fine so far but i have read loads and loads of threads / topics about this and apple will replace under warranty if you have one.

iOS 6 is frying the wifi boards on some phones but it appears to be random.

As above, never once had a wifi issue with my 4s or my misses, that goes for 6.1.3 too.

I'd suggest a restore to see if that fixes it, if not take it to Apple

It's not bullshit and has been reported all over the place if you cared to google....

This thread is fishy. For my part, never had absolutely any problem with my Wifi.

If your phone does not work and it's new, Apple will replace it, simple.

A google will suggest its not fishy and has been around since early iOS6 versions. Again like i said in another thread, just because YOU haven't had an issue, doesn't mean others wont.

I had the issue on my old ipad 2 and luckily it was in warranty and it was swapped.

Apple will also only replace it if its under warranty. They like to sweep this issue under the carpet. Again a google will show this.

I do not doubt for one minute some people have problems with their wifi with any phone, but unless it's a problem in a massive scale, this thread and the way it's worded is simply stupid.
The first time i bough an Ipad it did not work, right at the store while we were setting up. But since then I bought several Ipads for myself and the company i work for, and they all worked brilliantly. What does this mean?
Simply that's the way it is with technology of any kind.

Exactly. With today's mass produced gadgets, one cannot expect every one produced to work perfectly. There will always be some with defects, but as a percentage of the total production, it will be low. Simply assuming that all iPhone 4S' are affected as implied by the title of this thread is plain misleading.

I'm not a huge fan of the iPhone, probably due to my 4S being a works phone .... but its been through the update from 5.whatever through to 6.1.3 and .... its fine.

And even if it is happening to "thousands of users", that - as a percentage of the numbers sold - is pretty insignificant. Just what you'd count as normal failure rates.
