Its detractors are trying to pose its latest tablet as faulty. But Apple’s new iPad 3 overheating and poor Wi-Fi signal allegations are no major issues
More and more issues are being reported with the latest Apple tablet introduced in the market this past week. First it was overheat issue that reportedly made many people panic and then the week wi-fi issue that attracted the attention of the cyberworld and social media.
The overheat issue seem to have been a damp squib and there are indications that vested interest blew the issue out of proportion.
But the battery issue is not just about overheat. There are other issues including slow charging and the fact that it continues charging for around one more hour even after the fact that it shows the gadget fully charged.
Many have been trying to project the issue of overheat in the tablet to antennagate that surfaced following the launch of iPhone 4 more than a year ago. Meanwhile a PCWorld report says that its internal testing also showed that the new Apple tablet charges slowly when the battery is in use.
Meanwhile market experts are giving their own opinion on the latest issues haunting Apple’s latest tablet. One of such experts has this to say, “The problem is not that the battery is failing to charge. It is simply that the iPad is drawing the power faster than the charger can keep up with it. Thsu the battery appears to not be charging. It is charging, just very slow…The only way to circumvent that is to use a higher voltage charger. However that has an issue to itself. A faster higher voltage charge also creates more heat while charging”.
In the meantime an expert who has studied Apple’s latest tablet says that he will advise the iPad 3 users to charge the battery for at least more than one hour after it displays full battery sign. “I measured the power actually drawn by the AC Adapter and found that the new iPad continues to charge for up to 1 hour after it claims to reach 100 percent…This affects the battery run time if you stop charging when it says 100 percent. Other tablets and smartphones also lie about their charging status, so if getting maximum battery run time is crucial, people need to keep their devices recharging for longer than the screen claims”, Raymond M. Soneira told Arstechnica.
