Apple is investigating Wi-Fi connection issues on the new iPad, according to a report at 9to5Mac.

The Apple-centric Web site has posted what it says is an AppleCare internal document citing "intermittent connectivity...slow Wi-Fi speeds...[and] Wi-Fi network not seen."

At the top, the document states in red, "Issue/Investigation in Progress" and, under that, "Products Affected, iPad (3rd generation)."

Retail stores and "contact centers" are instructed to "capture" third-generation iPads if they exhibit any Wi-Fi issues, according to the document. In this case, capture refers to picking up a unit and shipping to Apple engineering centers, according to 9to5Mac.

This isn't the first time this issue has been raised , but it appears to be the first evidence of official Apple documentation recognizing the problem.

Wi-Fi connectivity has been discussed extensively on Apple Support Communities.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
