Apple Investigating iPad 3 Wi-Fi Issues

Apple has finally responded to the iPad 3 Wi-Fi complaints piling up on the Apple Support forums.

This means Apple Store employees will replace any third-generation iPad experiencing Wi-Fi issues so they can send the defective device back to Apple for inspection.
