For most Apple fans, the iPad 3 is a dream come true. And with amazing features like retina display, high definition video recording capabilities, built-in 5 megapixel camera, and the feature rich iOS 5 system, it’s easy to see why so many people love it.
Unfortunately, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) latest incarnation has hit a sour note with a few glitches in the system and that is off-putting for many iPad 3 users who wind up sharing their frustrations on the Apple support communities. The most notable problem is with the 3G connection. Some people have reported that the LTE edition tends to lose the 3G connection and then you will have to reset to get connected again. Its a problem that concerns users from all over the world, but its a problem that primarily concerns those outside the U.S. and in other counties like the United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, Singapore, and Australia.
One of the community members suggested the culprit could be a glitch with iOS 5.1 or the tablet’s Qualcomm chipset. Some of the other users said that they tried everything from resetting to replacing the sim card but nothing seems to solve the issue. Many of the users also think that the glitch is unique to iPad 3 and that they have not had any similar issues with previous versions.
Another user complained that although their iPad 3 works fine when they are at home, it doesn’t work when they are at extended coverage.
For the sake of Apple’s future, let’s hope they can find a solution quick. I will admit that it’s a little odd that their newest iPad has such a problematic glitch but I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Perhaps they should have done a little more beta testing on the tablet before releasing it. Let’s just hope that they will have this glitch fixed before they roll out the iPad 4.
