For some time now, there have been big questions about Wi-Fi networks, especially public ones, due to the (in) safety of use. Cupertian giant Apple but it has obviously taken it to a new level, which gives hackers or rather various peeks a relatively powerful weapon in their hands!

Wi-Fi connection problem

Carl Schou, who deals with security, now revealed really serious bug in iOS. It applies to all apple mobile devices, ie iPhones and iPads, in addition, it seems that the installed version of the operating system, including the latest version of iOS 14.6. So caution is definitely in order.

So what is it all about? If you find a Wi-Fi network called, for example, “% p% s% s% s% s% n” and you try to iPhone connect, so the Wi-Fi connection on your phone stops working completely and you no longer connect to any Wi-Fi network, even if you restart the device or try other common repair methods.

Did Apple make a school mistake again?

This seems to be a string formatting error, where the system can swap% items with programming commands and variables, and the fire is on the roof. The only known solution to the problem so far is to reset the settings via Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset network settings. But the biggest problem is that you probably won’t even know why your Wi-Fi connection suddenly stopped working on your iPhone.

We therefore recommend that you pay close attention to which Wi-Fi network you are connecting to. As you can see, it’s not just that by connecting to unsecured Wi-Fi, for example, you run the risk of eavesdropping and losing your data, but problems can be much more unsuspected and unexpected. Apple has not yet commented on the affair, however, we expect to soon release a patch to all affected iPhones.
