iPad 4 is currently the latest tablet from Apple Inc. iPad 4 users might have heard the rumors and hints about the upcoming iPad 5. Some of them might even start wondering if there is any chance you could upgrade to iPad 5 from your iPad 4. As soon as users get wind of a lighter, sleeker and faster model, the old ones start to look a little bit frumpy.
Though iPad 4 is the latest iPad from Apple, it has got some problems. We’ve collected a list of most common problems from the iPad 4 which hopefully will be fixed with the release of the new generation.
- Looks – As soon as Apple Inc. released the iPad 4, it didn’t look any newer, even though it was the latest model. It was more expensive than the previous versions, it had better features and Apple fans had to have it but after all this, iPad 4 looked exactly the same as iPad 3. Above all, most of the people were also unhappy with the static design across the new iPad and its upgraded predecessor. If the current rumors are to be believed, the next iPad will have a distinctive difference in its design looking a lot more like the exclusive iPad Mini. This time, iPad 5 is expected to be a fair bit lighter and thinner than the previous version, iPad 4. And it means, iPad 5 will not only be better, but also look better, too.
- Charging problems – Some blogs and people are reporting issues with charging the iPad 4. Many of them have issues with the connector not being recognized by the device, even though it champions the all-new lightning connector. It could also be the new 8-pin charging plug that’s causing the problems. It’s a clever function that it registers how the phone is plugged in, and then sends electric signals accordingly. And finally, anyone who is struggling with their iPad 4 charging plugs, the good news is the iPad 5 is rumored to have the wireless charging technology. And this will solve all of the customer problems.
- Wi-Fi –There has been serious mutterings about the standard of Wi-Fi on iPad 4. Many users regularly suffered from no access or very poor signal for seemingly no reason. It’s a major issue, because people always expect internet to be fast, quick and in the palm of their hands. So people usually tend to cause a stink when someone takes that thing away. There have also been rumors about the next iPhone 6 that it is coming with a Wi-Fi chip to boast faster browsing. It might be a sign that Apple has noticed these issues with the connectivity of its products, and we can get a solution for these problems in the next Apple Products.
- Released too soon – People also say that the iPad 4 was released so soon after the previous version iPad 3. Many people tied into contracts failed to take the advantage of the new tablet and couldn’t enjoy the benefits.
Apple is going to release its iPad 5 soon. Apple fans are expecting have it soon but since it is still not sure when iPad 5 is getting released, we could say that the iPad 4 is still a lot more better than other tablets in the market.
