A new problem may be facing the new iPad a month after it was offered into the market. A number of postings on the forum of the website of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have hinted that the device may be facing issues with its 3G connectivity.
Some users of the new iPad have indicated that they had some problems when they tried to connect to a 3G network using their devices. It appears that the issue is evident in a number of locations including Australia, Europe and some areas in Asia although a small number of users have experienced the same problem with the new iPad units in the United States.
One user indicated that the mobile data connection of the new iPad is lost even though the signal is still strong. The user was not able to re-establish the connection by modifying the settings on the device. The only time that the connection was re-established was when the device was turned off and on again.
The same solution was used by other owners of the new iPad in order to re-establish the 3G connection on their devices and it appears uncertain whether the problem was related to the hardware or software of the device.
The latest issue experienced by the new iPad follows other problems that were experienced by users of the device including some overheating issues, which was later clarified by the company and some testers of the device. However the new iPad appears to be hotter compared to the previous version.
Another problem that came to light was related to the Wi-Fi connection of the new iPad where users experienced intermittent connectivity or slow Wi-Fi speeds.
The Wi-Fi problem was actually noted since March and a workaround was released by OS X Daily where users would re-establish the connection to the network. Users were also asked to reset the network settings of new iPad.
No statements were released by Apple in connection to the latest issue facing the new iPad.
