Apple releases AirPort firmware update to resolve iOS connectivity issuesApple on Tuesday released a firmware update for all 802.11n-capable AirPort base stations, fixing a number of problems including an issue that prompted some iOS device users to see intermittent Wi-Fi dropouts.
Version 7.6.4 of Apple's AirPort base station firmware resolves three major issues seen in the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule.
As mentioned above, the software patches a bug that would intermittently cause a loss of Wi-Fi connectivity for some iOS devices. The problem has been seen before in certain Apple products, like the iPad, usually at time of launch.
In addition to the iOS Wi-Fi fix, the update resolves an issue that could cause an IPv6 Tunnel error.
Specific to the Time Capsule, an error that would cause the device to report back that a backup disk was in use has been fixed.
Users can grab the download via Software Update or Apple's Support Downloads webpage.
