So we already know that your new iPad (doesn’t really) overheat and (doesn’t really) charge improperly, so what else is (not really) wrong with it? Well, here are a couple of other complaints we’ve seen over the last week, which aren’t wide enough spread to be stories on their own right, but are interesting nevertheless.
There are some reports of endemic weak and slow Wi-Fi speeds on thew new iPad. The Apple Support forum thread is now into its 22nd page, and it does appear that some people are simply not getting decent Wi-Fi connections with their new devices.
The other problem is less on Apple’s side of things, but rather a slight change that has rendered some cases ineffective on the new iPad. While most cases fit the newest model, what some users have found is that the magnetic sleep/wake function doesn’t work. The word is that Apple tweaked the polarity on the magnets in the new iPad, and if cases aren’t correctly built, this function simply doesn’t occur. A number of case manufacturers have already stated they’ll replace incompatible versions, including Targus, Belkin, and Cygnett.
