iOS 9, OS X 10.10.4, 10.11 Will Fix All WiFi issues
 

Apple is likely to fix all the Wifi issues the iOS 9 and OS X 10.10.4

Networking has recently been an area of complain for various Apple users be it Macs, iOS devices or Apple TVs. Nevertheless, it’s all about to fixed with the upcoming iOS 9, OS X 10.10.4 and OS X 10.11. The root cause that led to numerous connection drops and losing access to internet was the way in which DNS requests were handled.

Culprit found guilty was something called ‘discoveryd’. Discoveryd initially made its appearance when OS X Yosemite went live and has since then caused havoc everywhere it went. The change in the way Mac handles DNS should presumably take the effect of a knock on in the sense that it effects anything else connected to the same network too. One of the major reasons for discoveryd causing havoc was the fact that it managed to cause disruptions even on the hardware that it wasn’t aware existed.

Discoveryd has been now been dumped in favor of mDNSResponder and is supposed to eliminate all networking isssues. All the new major release like OS X 10.10.4, iOS 9 beta 1 and OS X 10.11 feature mDNSResponder rather than discoveryd, putting the nightmare of DNS failures to an end. With the discoveryd causing mayhem over the last 12 months despite Apple’s several attempts of patching it which simply failed one after the other, the mDNSResponder is a welcome addition and will provide a solid foundation for incorporation of future improvements to Apple’s networking structure.
