Conspiracy theories are not actual facts.

I think a better theory is that they (some jerk in Marketing) decided it would provide more tier differentiation for the more expensive options.

Any updates to this? Please tell me there's somehting to download. I bought the T6i today for WiFi abilities. According to this thread, the function doesn't exist or is block. I need to connect it to my computer for genuine editing tools...I've been using the USB cable (none standard Canon cable) with my T1i for years--I'm over it.
A once loyal customer, let down by Canon. =(

All Canon cameras can use the standard mini USB cable, the only reason to use the special one is for AV.
You can buy an eye-fi card that will do what you want.

This is ridiculous... Nowhere did it read that this functionality wouldn't exist! I vaguely undersand this, if it would be clear, that to get this functionality I would need to buy a 70D. But 750D did fit my needs better and I couldn't have even imagined that canon would do something like just disabling a function! How does it help anyone?! And the whole marketing aspect behind "WiFi"... And if this is a matter of money...can we even pay to activate this function? Why not?
Sick strategy...whoever came up with this is sick.
Actually, there is a diagram of the capabilities.
The problem is that most people read "Wi-Fi", and think "networkable", which is not neccesarily the case. The camera behaves more like a wireless bluetooth device than than anything else. Notice the bidirectional arrows with the "smart device' in the illustration. Your camera should be able to directly connect with many tablets, just not laptops and PCs.

Agree this is a huge oversight. Large part of the reason for buying was Wifi and to find out it doesn't do the one mode I really wanted is seriously disappointing. Why in heck would I want to view that many images via my cell phone?! Bad form Canon.
