Despite being herald as the best tablet on the market right now, the New iPad ‘3’ is without its fair share of problems. Given the amount of units sold to date, it comes as no surprise that there are a barrage of complaints from a small group of users who may have a defective New iPad in their hands.

According to he folks over at Engadget, the forums are being bombarded by complaints from owners who are having problems with WiFi. There are reports of poor performance and connection drops, and now “an internal AppleCare document has now leaked to 9to5Mac, explaining how Apple is to “capture” and replace 3rd generation tablets that suffer from the intermittent connectivity.”
