How to fix your wifi and other internet problems using the latest firmware from the latest iOS devices
Hackers have figured out how to disable the wifi feature on iOS devices, but they still need to install an app that can automatically turn it on.
The bug was discovered by hackers in Sweden, and was reported to Apple in September.
Hackers discovered that an app called WifiDroid, which can be installed by iOS users, was turning on wifi even if it wasn’t connected to the internet.
Wifi Droid is part of a suite of apps called WIFI-lite.
Users of iOS 8 and later have the option of disabling the feature through the app’s Settings, as long as they’re using an iOS device running iOS 10.
But those with iOS 10 installed, or devices that are not rooted, will still need an app to turn the feature on.
As we noted in September, the fix to the problem was to uninstall the Wifi-lite app, which you can find in Settings > General > Software Update > Wifi Update.
But in this update, that was no longer necessary.
Users that don’t want to uninstall or reinstall the app can still disable it by going into Settings > Security > Security options, disabling Wifi update.
Users also can disable the WIFi-lite application through Settings > Privacy > Privacy settings, and also uninstall the app.
In the update, the feature is still enabled, but it no longer has to be enabled in order to turn it off.
