Posted on Thursday, 22 March 2012 at 3:46 PM by MobileFreak

Just around a week of launch of the new iPad, we have seen record breaking sale over weekend of selling around 3 million new iPads. And now, people have started getting couple of problems with new iPad.

One of them is with the iPad WiFi signal which tends to be really weak as per threads in Apple Forum. Where few people complaining that other devices are working perfectly fine on same WiFi router but new iPad is getting weak signals or no signals at all. The thread has gone long for around 12 pages. Some of them are so annoyed and ready to return it back and many are using all apple devices iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPad 2 and the new iPad and facing problem with only new iPad. Aren't they obsessed so much with Apple products? Though there is fix mentioned on few forums ( OSX Daily) but still few are not able to fix it.

Another issue which was reported in another thread is relating tooverheatingof the new iPad but   Apple denied that it was an issue and said the new iPad runs "well within our thermal specifications."

According to thermal images from Dutch site (via Google Translate) first discovered by  Engadget, Apple's third-gen iPad is heating up 10 degrees hotter than the iPad 2. Using an infrared camera, Tweakers measured the temperature of each tablet side by side after five minutes of running GLBenchmark. The pictures show that the new iPad hit 33.6 degrees centigrade (92.5 Fahrenheit) while the iPad 2 reached a cooler 28.3 degrees centigrade (82.9 Fahrenheit).

And here couple of funny comments on the Apple Forum

"Return it. This is not Steve Jobs's iPad. I am sticking with the iPad 2."

"It's a hot one, I think I will use it to fry my eggs in the morning.  Also loves to eat up the battery."

As you are aware there is history of issues with Apple products iPad 1 WiFi issue, iPhone 4 death grip issue, etc. Not sure why Apple never learn from their mistakes and they always go ahead so bold in launching new products and know people will always come back like anything despite of whatever problems they faced in their earlier products.
