The new iPad could have 3G connectivity issues to add to what appears to be a fast-expanding list of usability problems, it has emerged.
Since going on sale, the third-gen iPad has been plagued with complaints over disappointing battery life tortuous recharging times and overheating.
It’s also been the subject of much grousing over glitches when connecting to Wi-Fi – something that prompted a wearyingly familiar flat denial and ‘you’re holding it wrong’ explanation from Cupertino.
Today, it’s the tablet’s mobile broadband support that’s in the firing line, after a rash of users testified to the new iPad’s unstable 3G connections on Apple Support Community forums.
According to Apple Insider, the problem, which the provenance of complaints suggests is international in scope but appears less widespread in the US, only becomes apparent after users have reset their iPad.
Apple has yet to comment on the latest batch of user gripes. But if and when it does we’re betting its statement probably won’t involve the word ‘sorry’.
