Some Apple Silicon Macs are experiencing WiFi connectivity issues and slow speeds

Apple’s latest macOS 13 Ventura update is causing WiFi connectivity issues and slow speeds on some Macs with Apple Silicon. Internet speeds are slower than expected resulting in poor video quality and unexpected call drops. Some users also say that their WiFi connection drops completely. Scroll down to read more details about the problem and if Apple is planning a possible fix.

Macs with M1 and M2 series chipsets are having WiFi connection issues and more

A corporate WiFi installer called Meter has published a blog post, stating that Macs with M1 and M2 chipsets are having problems connecting to WiFi. Meter and other wireless service providers have reported that it is a “known issue on Apple’s part.” Meter explains:

“Although these issues can manifest themselves in different ways, the underlying issue is the same: reduced throughput and speeds, devices disconnecting randomly, and failing to rejoin the network.”

UC IT Services is also aware of this issue and is tracking performance through a Service Status dashboard. The IT team suggests that Apple fix the issue in the upcoming macOS 13 Ventura update which is expected to arrive sometime this week.

Apple has upgraded the latest macOS Beta to Release Candidate, to address a peer-to-peer issue affecting the Wi-Fi connectivity of Apple MacBook M1/M2 devices and Apple Mobiles. All tests with both the Beta and Release Candidate were positive and IT Services, Apple and other campus entities were unable to reproduce the issue. We will provide another update as soon as we are notified of the official release of macOS 13.1.

At this point, it is not yet clear how widespread the problem is. However, we will update you as soon as more details on the fix become available. Having problems connecting to WiFi on your M1 or M2 Mac? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
