More iPad 3 Complaints – WiFi & 3G

Posted on: June 18th, 2012 by Tetrabyte No Comments

Apple has been hit by more complaints regarding the new iPad – this time with WiFi and 3G connections dropping erratically and not returning until the device has been powered down and powered back up.

One topic on the Apple forums titled “The new iPad has unstable 3G connection” has hundreds of complaints; all seemingly related.

The issue seems to affect the 3G connection more than it does the WiFi, but either way there seems to be a bug causing the network connections to drop.

I imagine Apple hope this is a software issue rather than a hardware issue, as otherwise Apple may have to issue a complete product recall – this would cost Apple millions of dollars and affect their currently high value brand name.
