Right now, Apple claims that iOS 5 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and I do not suppose that the majority of you out there do agree to such a statement – where most of you would be toting an iOS-powered device, of course. Well, it does seem that iOS 6 is going to rock with the latest word on its ‘Wi-Fi plus Cellular’ setting found in the latest iOS 6 beta. Assuming there is a weak Wi-Fi signal which prevents you from running certain apps on an iOS 6-powered device, you might need to make the necessary change to rely on cellular connectivity – but not so with the latest beta release of iOS 6, where there is an option under settings in the General/Cellular control panel, allowing you to choose ‘Wi-Fi Plus Cellular’.
The whole idea behind this option is to let the device switch to cellular connectivity automatically whenever it detects a weak Wi-Fi signal in the vicinity. It remains to be seen whether this feature will be retained for the final polished version of iOS 6, or will it remain in developer’s land only for the time being.
