Looks like an iphone needs to chill sometimes (laughs). That was the first time my sister’s iphone 4s wifi was fixed. The second time was last month and it convinced me a little bit there’s really something to do with the weather or temperature. Because last month we went to Macau.

We live in the Philippines by the way and the weather here is 28 Degrees in Celsius and sometimes 33. When we went to Macau last month, it was around 15 to 17 Degrees in Celsius. Yes, it’s cooler obviously.

We were there on Chinese New Year, for 4 days. Then we went home. Weirdly, her iphone 4s wifi had tantrums again. It wasn’t connecting again. So she did the same procedure – let dear iphone chill for a while. After 15 minutes, turned it on and voila! Back to normal wifi!
