Lousy wifi speed on iphone and iPad after ios8?

Go to Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services and turn off Wifi Networking. Recommended by MacRumors; it worked for me. You will need to restart after making the change.

Edit: missed a step, sorry.

Wow, this is apparently what that option does:

WiFi networking finds nearby Wi-Fi networks and sends information about them to Apple to help Apple build a database of open Wi-Fi networks, & to figure out your location if you don't have cell service.


I think I would like to turn that off anyway.

Why didn't Apple check wifi reception before release?

Different title (yours is better), but same subject:

Remember how when you were little
you could just rip off your diaper and
just run around naked and everyone
thought it was so cute and funny?


Anyway, I need bail money.

Gutie, thanks for this!

There was a noticeable increase is speed for most sites on my iPad miniR.

My 5s already had this turned off, so there was no difference.


I think I would like to turn that off anyway.

Accept for the performance hit, I would have left it on.
