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, 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.
