Wifi issue with iPhone 6?

Has anyone else experienced issues with the wifi on the iPhone 6? I don't know if it is the iPhone 6 or the iOS 8.

 

The wifi randomly goes off and can't find a signal.  I put it on airplane mode and off again and still nothing - even when it is next to the router.  The only thing that resolves the issue is to reset the phone, although it is just a temporary measure and it happens agin 1 or 2 days later.

Re: Wifi issue with iPhone 6?

Same problem as someone else had on here - They updated yesterday that Apple swapped the phone for them.

Re: Wifi issue with iPhone 6?

gemz I had this same issue, as MI5 mentioned. I kept having to reset my phone, only had it a week. If you google iphone 6 wifi issues, seems many people have had the same problem. I made a reservation with apple at my local store, and they replaced the handset, as it wasn't finding the wifi instore. The guy said he'd had a few people in with the issue, he too thought apple would release an ios update soon, as it could be a problem with that. In my case he wasn't sure so replaced the handset, touch wood it's been fine up to now. Fingers crossed.
