Get the all the latest updates and analysis on the most common new Apple iPad 3 problems, including  the wi-fi, screen, battery and overheating

While the new iPad 3 launched to huge critical acclaim, there have been a number of issues reported with one or more of the features.

While these vary in seriousness, much of the criticisms and complaints – be it from analysts, journalists, or consumers venting their spleens on forums – can be categorized into four main areas, all of which we will keep you up do date with here.   

New Apple iPad 3: Screen issues

 

The new iPad was upgraded with a Retina high definition display, previously only seen on the much smaller iPhone.

Apple has had a lot of praise for the crisp, bright visuals this brings the tablet, and for existing iPad users this seems to have largely been held up as the main reason for upgrading.

However it’s this sharp rendering that some have pointed out revels the rough edges of images across the internet.

Web developer David O Shea explained on mobify.com: “We’ve all seen clip art printed out from the web,” said Mr. Shea.

“On paper, these jagged, pixelated illustrations stand out like a sore thumb. A professional graphic is crisp and clear even when printed. The iPad Retina display will make all your existing graphics look like pixelated clip art.”

Some users have also complained of a ‘yellow hue’ on the screen, with speculation that this is actually a hardware issue – some consequence of the glue used in the manufacturing process, for instance. 

Some have also pointed out a general inconsistency with the display colours, such as Gottabemobile, which has called for Apple to take action: “Many users probably won’t notice the color shift until they compare it to other iPads.

However, the yellow displays are enough of a problem to cause people to return them and tarnish Apple’s reputation of consistency. The yellow iPad display issue is very real and Apple needs to do something about it as soon as possible.”
