Well, it’s that time now where the launch-day-craziness has died down and people have actually spent a fair bit of time with Apple’s new iPad. And, as such, reports have started to hit the web of some not-so-great aspects of the tablet. First we heard that there could be issues with overheating, and now another potential problem has arisen regarding WiFi connectivity.
According to an AppleCare support thread, many new iPad users are experiencing weak WiFi signals on their new iPads, even when other devices in the room (MacBooks, iPad 2s, etc) have full bars. One user commented:
“I am in a hotel with my laptop and new ipad3. The laptop wifi reception is as strong as it gets, but the iPad only registers a weak signal. Anyone else having similar problems? Any suggestions?”
That’s not all though. It also seems that some new iPad models are sporadically dropping WiFi connections all together.
Personally, I have noticed a slightly weaker WiFi signal on my new iPad. And, once while I was browsing the web, the WiFi completely cut out. Matt has also had similar issues.What about you guys? Has your WiFi been as good as it should be? Let me know in the comments below or on twitter.
