Now that Apple’s new iPad has been out for a few days, the complaints are really starting to pile up. Following the “overheating” concerns that surfaced earlier this week, many users are now complaining of Wi-Fi reception issues on the new device.
There’s a growing thread on Apple’s support forums (noted by AppleInsider) with users stating that their new iPads consistently get weak Wi-Fi signals, while their other Apple devices, such as iPhones and MacBook get strong reception in the exact same circumstances.
There are currently over 100 replies on the thread, suggesting that this is a very real problem for many users. Some even claim that they’ve returned their unit, only to find that the replacement has the exact same issue, and the complaints appear to have begun the very day after the new iPad hit shelves.
It’s unclear how serious the issue is (It may be iOS reporting the signal strength incorrectly), or exactly why it might be occurring, and Apple has yet to confirm the problem or release any statement regarding the issue.
