Apart from releasing iOS 8.1.1 for supported iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models yesterday Apple also released OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. This update brings a handful of improvements and fixes for the company’s desktop operating system. It was also supposed to bring a fix for the Wi-Fi issues that have been irking Yosemite users. Some are claiming that these issues still persist even though they have updated to OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 release.
Many Mac users running the latest Yosemite release have taken to vent their frustration over at Apple’s official support forums. A continuous stream of posts suggests that 10.10.1 has been unable to fix the Wi-Fi issues for a large number of people even though it was pushed out for precisely that reason.
Users are still reporting dropping connections, connection failures and sluggish speeds. For them OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 update changes nothing as they’re essentially stuck right where they started from.
So far Apple hasn’t officially acknowledged that these issues persist even after users have updated to the latest release. Suggested fixes mentioned in the post include resetting the SMC and removing old entries from the preferred network like in System Preferences > Network > Advanced.
We’ll continue to monitor this and will update you if there’s any change, hopefully Apple will take note and push out another update which firmly puts these gremlins to rest.
