When Apple’s third-generation iPad was launched, it was met with much acclaim regarding its screen and its LTE connectivity. However it was also met with criticism in the form of it getting hot and also a possible WiFi issue where there have been user reports of WiFi signals on the third-gen iPad not being as strong as its predecessors. Now if the above leaked AppleCare document is to be believed, it looks like Apple has taken an interest in the issue and are currently looking into it.
According to Apple, the affected units mainly involve the WiFi-only models as the 4G LTE models allow for extra network power due to the black rubber cut found at the top of the device. If you think that your iPad is one of the affected units and you’re having trouble hooking onto WiFi networks, slow connections or intermittent connectivity, it seems that you should be able to drop by Apple’s stores and have your unit replaced. For more information on the issue or to see if anyone else is exhibiting the same problems that you are facing, head on down to the Apple Support forums for the details.
