Apple iPad: Weak WiFi signal causing problems

Some worrying news to report now, as it has been revealed that customers in the US are suffering from weak WiFi signals on their newly purchased Apple iPad tablets.

As reported from Pocket-Lint, Apple forums and the official support site are jam packed with user complaints all related to weak WiFi signal problems.

This is likely due to the positioning of the antenna on the iPad, as it is located behind the Apple logo which could often lead to the antenna not being in an ideal position for the best signal.

This could be a huge problem for Apple, as this is a hardware issue, and not something can can be fixed with a simple software update.

The worse-case scenario would be a recall, but lets hope it does not come down to that. Do you have an iPad? Let us know if you have been experiencing a weak WiFi signal or not.
