IPad3 Troubles & ‘Features’.

It would seem that the world of the Ipad3 is not a blissful and idyllic paradise as the fanbois would have you believe.

An lengthy article recently posted on the T3 website lists issues with the screen, wi-fi and the battery.  Also it likes to get a little too hot.

  • The screen renders web graphics a little too sharply.  This means that a lot of the images turn into a pixellated mess.
  • The WI-FI is less than stable with complaints ranging from disconnections to complete system crashes.
  • The IPad has hotspots that are some 20 degrees higher than Apple’s range of safe temperatures.
  • The on-screen battery level shows a full charge two hours before the battery is full.

Apparently the battery ‘issue’ is actually a feature.

Apple says this feature has always been part of iOS and allows users to keep the device plugged in as long as they want.

Cupertino says once the device reaches 100 per cent, it will decharge slightly and recharge. That process is repeated until the device is unplugged.

Apple VP Michael Tchao said: “That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like. It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.”

Here is the original T3 article.
