What is this problem?
This issue was first made public by security researcher Carl Schou, who via Twitter He commented that when trying to connect his iPhone to a WiFi network, this configuration was permanently disabled and it did not matter whether or not to restart the device, since the failure persisted and the only possible solution to fix it was to restore the operating system. All this was due to WiFi network name the one I was trying to connect to, which was called “% p% s% s% s% s% n”. Apparently, the fact that the network begins with a symbol such as the percentage generates conflicts internally.
The bug is obviously serious and the solution available in iOS 14.6 is tedious to say the least. However, we said previously that we do not classify it as serious because it is rare to find WiFi networks that begin with this symbol. However, in iOS 14.7 it is already completely fixed the problem and it is possible to connect to WiFi networks that start with that character without the iPhone presenting any problem. However, if you are still on iOS 14.6 We recommend that you do not connect to any network with that name to avoid problems, since the failure continues to persist there.
When can you update to this version?
We could classify this as the million dollar question. Since May 24, we have not received an update on the iPhone that is not a beta and although the great news will arrive with iOS 15 in September, there are those who already need to receive version 14.7 to correct the aforementioned problems to connect to WiFi networks from the iPhone, as well as other bugs including the higher battery consumption.
Apple still does not leave clear indications of when the chosen date will be, but seeing how advanced the iOS 14.7 beta is already and how well it works, we could expect that next week it will be officially launched or that we could even have The surprise. In any case, it remains in doubt and although it could be one of the last of iOS 14, it does not seem to be the last because of how rare it would be if Apple had so many months without updates until the arrival of the ’15’. In any case, we recommend you to be attentive to this medium, where we will inform you at the moment that this launch occurs officially.
