Apple Replacing New iPads with WiFi Problems

Oh, look at that Retina display! Oh, look at those quad-core graphics! Oh, look at that… what? Why isn’t my Wi-Fi working? Yup, apparently there have been “many” new iPad owners who have been complaining about Wi-Fi issues, ¬†Apple has very much recognized the pressing problem.

A range of different issues have arisen concerning Wi-Fi on the third-generation iPad. Some users are saying that their connection drops out unexpectedly. Some say that they’re getting remarkably slow download and upload speeds. Others say that the device is unable to pickup on local WiFi networks altogether. On Apple’s online support forum, a thread has popped up with hundreds of people saying they’re having Wi-Fi problems. Interestingly, this only appears to affect WiFi-only models, as the 4G LTE versions are just fine. There’s an Apple solution for you: buy the more expensive one.

This is above and beyond the overheating issues that already plague the new iPad. For now, Apple support isn’t offering a definite fix, so they’ve been instructed to “capture” the affected iPads and replace them with new units for customers.

    Yep! I’m having the same problems but even before I upgraded to iOS6.Already have an ipad 2 which has worked perfectly since last year. I bought another exactly the same and within a month the home button stopped working and it continually dropped the wifi. I took it back and apple gave me a new one. This one also keeps dropping wifi. Now I’ve upgraded thinking it would perhaps cure the problem but I can’t even turn on wifi at all now. What is with this expensive piece of junk?
