One thing I've had awesome experiences with Apple on are support. There's a reason they CONSISTANTLY come out on top in customer satisfaction surveys.

Yes, it may take a few weeks or even a month to get your issue resolved - either due to software or delays in replacement hardware due to demand. Big deal. That's life. You got the bum roll of the dice. The good news, unless you are some kind of unreasonable nut, Apple will make you happy. And even if your a nut they will refund your purchase.

I'm not just making that up - its my EXPERIENCE with them for over two decades for not just myself, but friends, family, associates and businesses.

So take a pill, ignore the idiots implying your some sort of hater for mrntioning you are having an issue (again stuff happens) and let Apple take care of it.

Seriously man... you're telling me to ignore the people calling me stupid and a troll... and then you go on and on like I'm a 4 year old that doesn't know how to deal with Apple when these things happen.

You act like anybody that has a problem doesn't actually know how to talk to Apple about them? You act like I don't know that it might take some time to fix this? Seriously... I wan't complaining AT ALL that I had the issue. All I did was point it out.

Why are you even talking to me about how to handle my issues with my iPads? I never indicated I didn't know what to do with them. I never indicated that I hate Apple because of them. I never indicated I didn't expect SOME units to have issues. Nothing.

My ONLY point is that people here are freaking out just because people admit that their units might have an issue.

RIDICULOUS! The iPad 3 has better wi-fi reception than my iPhone 4S. Where my iPhone 4S shows one dot, I get 3-4 with my iPad 3. I can use my iPad 3 in areas where other devices do not get a signal. I call BS!

Seriously? You posted to an Apple fan site and now you don't like the response to your post?

"Doctor, it hurts when I do this"
"So don't do that anymore!"

If you don't like those responses, you can either not post your kind of post here, or just ignore them.

Trust me - your not going to get them to not harass you, and the more you protest the more it's going to fan the flames (oops - I'm just as guilty : )

I think your fundamental problem is your trying to have a rational discussion with the irrational. It's a trap I fall into more than I like to admit \

DocNo42, see my point? Because THIS guy doesn't have the issue with HIS iPad... he uses that as proof that the story is complete BS.

Can we please raise the level of conversation on this thread to something other than: "if you suggest there is ever a problem with your Apple device, you're full of shit and an idiot troll hater"

I just have standards that make me think people should be able to have rational discussions without the level of discourse we see on this thread.

At a minimum, open a ticket with AppleCare. You can do it via email even. Give 'em the same details as you did here. If nothing else, if a problem and solution is identified you will be directly notified. Heck, they may reach out to you for more information to help diagnose/solve whatever issue may be there.

They can't fix problems they don't have data for...

In a forum like this on a topic like this?

Not with all the participants. Not gonna happen. You can have a rational discussion with quite a few folks - there are some really smart and engaging people to interact with in here. The secret is being selective with whom you wish to have such conversations and ignoring the crap posts.

Otherwise your just pissing into the wind....

So far so good no problems at all. Wi-Fi signal seems to be fine I'm not seeing any issues such as yellow screen that others have reported. Played a few games such as modern combat 3 they work a hell of a lot better than on my iPad 1. A few other games and programs are working a lot better. One of the best things I've found so far is the iPhone apps that I have scale up really well.

3G signal really good, we live a poor coverage area on our provider, seems around the same signal strength as the phone.

Charging seems a little slower than my iPad 1. Battery life is good at around 10 hours. Dictation works quite well, Scottish accent asside.

I don't know what the failure rate is on an iPad but if they sold 3 million and still have lots of stock then there must be quite a few dodgy ones out there. Even the best QC in the world would never be able to ensure 100% perfect units.

And allow me to think that given the small number of people, I doubt about the necessity of reporting anything on the matter or then AI should report on every Apple support thread having a few dozen people in it.

How do you know it's a small number of people? In my experience 99% of people who have a problem don't bother to post it on the internet, they just take it back to the shop.

Plus does it matter how many people it is? If I'm sitting at home having wifi problems with my iPad 3 the first thing I would do is check the internet to see if anyone else was having the same problem and see if they could suggest a fix. If that didn't work I would then take it back to the shop. You see how this works? Have you never surfed the tech forums for advice on how to do something, or resolve a problem, or seek advice?

If AI doesn't post this type of story who else will. This site is full of Apple users. You don't think some of us would be interested in this kind of stuff? Of course AI should report every issue. They're hardly the New York Times with more important stuff to print. Specialist news like this is why most people use sites like AI.

Environment your iPad is in at any given moment can be effected by all sorts of radio signals going on around it. Isolated incidents being reported within a week of launch I take little faith in. Widespread reports over several weeks and months, I'd be a little more concerned.

A lot of it is psychology. When I hear someone ragging the iPad because it's thicker and heavier I just scratch my head. Honestly how many people can tell it's the tiniest bit thicker and heavier. If they weren't given the size and weight specifications would they even notice it?

ah, you could go to Apple's website. Seems most of these issues are originating from Apple's website. I don't think AI or any other apple blog has to report on every single issue someone has with one of their devices unless there's evidence that the problem is widespread.

Well, there are 144 replies, however a small number of people keep posting over and over and others are simply posting "I don't have a problem". A rough estimate is that there are 20-30 people with a problem on the Apple forum cited in this story.

Let's say you're right and that's only 1% of the people with a problem. That means that there are actually 2,000 to 3,000 people with a problem - out of more than 3 M iPads sold. I would say that's a small number of people.

And, if history is any indication, the number is even smaller because:
1. If any of the units are truly defective, Apple will replace them.
2. Some people simply like to complain. Invariably when there's an issue like this, people will complain, but are happy enough that they'd keep the device, anyway. In fact, since they can return the device if they're not happy, it looks like 100% of the people complaining aren't unhappy enough to return their device.

In my experience managing people I've found that "complainers" are the best resource for rooting out problems. At times they are hard to put up with but overall I prefer them to the boot lickers who suck up every chance they get or the ones who have their head in the clouds and think everything is perfect. Wasn't it Steve Jobs who "complained" that his keys scratched the face of his iPhone?

This could easily be a valid problem.

Just because there are only "dozens" of people posting about it on that thread, doesn't mean that those are the only people having issues with it. Those people are just the vocal minority.

I'm sure some group will test it to see if the claims are true or not.

Even with it's issues, it's still the best $500 tablet.

Statistically, there have to be some problems. Were talking over 3 million devices!

On the flip side I think you see some people being hyper-sensitive since every perceived flaw - no matter how insignificant - tends to be way overblown in the press. The continual link baiting and over-dramatizing gets old, quickly. You would think after the bust that was "antennagate" that most of the usual suspects would be ashamed to keep it up.

Speaking of no shame and overdramatizing, as was pointed out in the "overheating" article comments even Consumers Reports is devolving into the "Weekly Reader News" tabloid journalism space by continually using "hot" when at the very end they admit it's merely warm

I'm glad this thread has been posted. I thought it was just me.

I am indeed the proud owner of a 'New' iPad.

However, there does appear to be an issue with wi-fi signal fluctuating to the point of stone dead at times...or a weak or yo-yoing signal. 'Appear.' Well. There is.

I wish it weren't so. It's currently on 2 of the 3 bars after dropping out completely and then back on with only 1 weak bar.

It doesn't seem to matter how far or close to the wi-fi you are.

It may be a software issue.

But it's becoming clear that there is an issue. Whether it's a minority or bigger problem it's hard to say at this point.

Another thing I notice is a choppy lag when putting an enquiry into the Safari search box. It's only .5 of a sec or a sec but it's noticeable.

When the Wi-Fi is up and on 3 bars it's very, very fast. Comparable or faster than the iPad2?

I'll be monitoring the issue. Much more of it and I'll be in touch with Apple.

Aside from this issue, it's an astonishing piece of kit. The screen is awesome.

As for the heating thing? I haven't noticed mine getting hot at all. Very cool running. But I'm not running killer game apps at full tilt. Yet.

I don't know about some people. But if I pay £399 for a state of the art device with wi-fi being one of it's touted features I expect it to work. I'll see how the issue develops and if the problem persists the 'New' iPad will go back to the store for Apple to fix/replace.

Exactly. If you have a new electronic device and it doesn't work, which is more likely to solve the problem-- complaining about it on a forum like this or taking it back where you bought it?

If you don't care enough to take it back to the store, it's probably not that much of a problem.

There is no answer in Apple Support forums, though several people have posted the exact issue. I was making a point (maybe not very well) to someone who said AI and other sites should not run a story about the WiFi issue because it only affects a small number of people. Besides the news value of such a story, if you're one of those small number of people affected, any mention of your issue on any forum is welcome.

Of interest - I have a iPad 1 gen, iPad 2 and the newest one. My 1 gen with 3G connectivity has the weakest wifi signal. The newest is on par with the iPad 2.

So....user results may vary.

Why aren't more people complaining about the VGA camera in the front? That should be a bigger deal that the tablet getting warm. There are plenty of androids with 2mp sensors in the front.

Ssshhhh these people don't take to kindly when you mention that an Android tablet has a feature that the iPad doesn't. I'll save them time by answering for them. Apple knows what their doing, if you needed a higher resolution they would have given you a higher resolution. The market has spoken, everyone is buying a iPad regardless of your want for a higher resolution front camera. Lets see I know there are more, oh if you want an Android tablet no one is stopping you so good luck with your crappy tablet. One more, just one more, oh why would you possibly want a higher resolution front camera with a mug like that, trust us when we're saying you don't need a higher pixel count you need less, you sasquatch.

Most likely because not very many people care.

Personally, I think 640x480 is plenty for video chatting. Do you really need to see the spinach in the other person's teeth?

Besides, if Apple had a 5 MP camera in front, they'd get all the whiners complaining about their data usage (it is possible to use FaceTime over 3G).

I really was trying to be funny when I posted my reply to this question but I have ask do you really believe that. My only contact with a lot of my friends is over video chat and when I use my iPad I always get complaints on how crappy the image quality is. So I started using my Samsung Galaxy 7.7" and I now I get comments like, "wow what are you using as a camera."

I take a lot of crap from people on this board because I happen to like some of the Android tablets that are on the market, but on this subject I'm sorry the iPad is just not very good. Yea sure your side is good but what the other person sees is subpar quality, unless of course your both using iPads then in that case your both clueless.

Take it as is I don't care, yes, yes I know you have no problems, everything works as if the gods themselves crafted the 640 x 480 lens from Apple. Sorry just say that out loud, 640 x 480, yea I know, it sounds pretty ridiculous to me to.

I noticed this too. From the front room in my house and the master bedroom on the new iPad I would suddenly discover I was browsing the net over the 3G network instead of the house Wireless network. The iPad 3 just dropped it. In the house we have an MBP, two iPhone 4's and an iPad 1, and I've not had this issue with those devices.

When the signal was working ok I didn't notice any problems with speed. Watching stuff over Netflix worked ok.

I did some googling and noticed one guy who said that he only had the problem at home on his 802.11g network and not the 802.11n network at the Apple store. So I checked my router and sure enough I'd got it set to run at 802.11g - something I'd done previously to cater for legacy devices which now no longer exist. So I upped the speed to 802.11n and so far so good. It's early days yet as I've not had much chance to test it, but I've not noticed any connection drops so far.

Really?

Skype's standard video resolution is 320x240. You can change the setting to a maximum of 640x480. So the most widely used video chatting program on the planet agrees that 640x480 is plenty.

Sorry, but arguing that you need multiple MP video chat resolution for a tablet is silly. It would be different for a corporate conference room setup which has a stable camera and good lighting (plus being viewed at a greater distance), but for a handheld camera being viewed on a 7.7" screen? Silly spec games.

It's not about silly specs game. For the price Apple, charges for the iPads the front camera should have been updated to at least 2 MP like the rest of the tablets. Skype is at 720P, not VGA you better go back and read up on it again. It's not just the resolution either it's also the quality of image.

Look I know most people on this board thinks that Apple is the second coming and can't do any wrong but Apple only updates their tablets once a year. Sorry but a VGA webcam was obsolete last year and the year before that, you defending Apple on this, well let's just say I fully understand why people think Apple users are just drones drinking the CoolAid. There is no excuse, none, they should have paid the extra dollar for a multiple MP front camera. I have many friends all over the world and I want the best quality when talking with them, this might not be important to you but it is with me. Check out my new necklace, put it up closer I can't make it out, no still can't, oh forget it I'll send you a picture.

So never mind that the most popular chatting software on the planet can't go beyond 640x480 or that even if you did youd collapse the Internet faster than Netflix - Apple needs to upgrade the camera "just because"?!?

Yup - your right. It's the irrational Apple lovers that have the problem
