One of the advantages of being a country not having the latest gadgets first is that we get to see how the product pans out especially if there are problems with it.
Such is the case of Apple’s iPad 3 where despite the overwhelming sales, we’ve seen common issues reported by users. The overheating problem was not that bad, the overcharging was clearly explained, but this WiFi problem seems a bit more serious.
On WiFi versions of the iPad 3, users are experiencing intermittent connection or weak signals, slow WiFi speeds, and sometimes not able to detect WiFi networks. This problem seems to affect WiFi models only, not the 4G ones.
Apple is already aware of this and there’s already an internal memo instructing AppleCare to “œcapture” or in other words, replace the affected unit along with the included accessories.
Hope the cause of this problem gets solved and fixed before the iPad 3 officially lands in the country.
