New Apple iPad 3 Problems: Screen, wi-fi, battery & overheating issues
title: New iPad 3: Wi-fi problems / url: wifi
This includes range and quality of connection, as well as seemingly related entire system crashes. Intermittent problems, such as cut outs, have also been logged.
"iPad3 has serious connection problems. I ran speedtest.net app on both devices side by side and iPad3 has half the throughput as all other devices.”
Some comments have asserted that much like the iPhone 4’s famous ‘antenna gate’ scandal, holding the device in a certain way can effect reception.
As soon as I DO hold it as described, without changing the position too much, I drop to only one bar and in fact it drops connection half the time!!!! You have got to be kidding me right?
Holding my iPad 3 in the same way as I always did my iPad 1 the wifi reception is very bad!” said clipper99.
