iPhone owners are saying that the latest software update for their device has significantly boosted its wireless reception. The second update issued this month went live Tuesday via iTunes. iPhone owners on several popular message forums, including those on the MacRumors site, have said their devices now connect to WiFi access points that were once claimed out of range.
"My WiFi reception is definitely better," a user identified as schulzmc said Tuesday. "While in my office I have never been able to connect to the WiFi hub in the conference room down the hall [but after the update] I was surprised that the Edge connection seemed faster, until I realized I was connected to the WiFi hub with two bars. For me, this is a huge issue, as I was preparing to try to deal with whatever hassle it would take to get the WiFi connection extended to my office area."
