No matter what the technology and how perfect people say it is, there are problems with it. After all, it’s the nature of machines to reflect the imperfections of their makers. As I sit back and wait for my 3rd generation iPad to arrive, I’m more sensitive to the stories of imperfection about it. My reaction is a normal one–“Should I return the iPad 3 and trade it in for an iPad 2?”
- iPad’s battery gauge is inaccurately saying it’s at 100% charge when another hour is needed. (Read source and this one). Furthermore, old charging cables may not do the job they did with the iPad 2 (Source). A possible solution? Get Battery Tune LT (no cost) to help gauge battery charge.
- iPad burns hot, as hot as 116 degrees. (Read source)
- Old iPad2 apps will appear pixelated on the iPad 3 because they aren’t built for retinal display, and will dramatically increase in size. If they don’t, non-3rd Generation iPad apps will appear pixelated. (Source: MacWorld)

- WiFi problems have been reported for the iPad 3rd generation (Source and another one)
