I received my shiny new 16GB iPad 3G yesterday and finally had the time to open it this afternoon. The first thing I noticed when taking it out of the box is that if you jostle or move it around at all it makes a noticeable rattling noise.
At first I thought perhaps it was the SIM card tray not being seated correctly so I totally removed the tray and SIM card. The rattle is still there! It was my understanding that accelerometers present on all iDevices were electronic and will make no physical noise. Can anyone else verify this information? Does anyone else have this rattling noise? If so please list your mode i.e. WiFi or WiFi + 3G. If not, it sounds like I will be calling AppleCare or visiting the nearest store to swap this bad boy out!
Every Now and then I hear this weird noise coming from my iPad. It's a lady's voice saying something odd. It even happens when my iPad is off and the volume is off. I cannot figure out what is going on. Has anyone else had a similar problem and can help me fix it? I'm afraid it's a virus except I have heard that iPads don't really get viruses is that true?
I have been noticing popping sound from wearing the headphone. It usually occurs when the keypad pops into view. It's rather subtle and I can't say I am annoyed by it, but I just want to see if other people has the similar experience.

I suffer daily due to medically diagnosed short-term memory failures. I have IR transponders in my wallet on my car keys, etc..make an iOS device beep indefinitely until located? The iCloud findmyiphone sound push feature is useless to me. I haven't probed the matter too deeply on google but there must be a way. I looked through cydia and the app store on my phone with no luck.
So I recently purchased a new iPad, however a strange noise just started coming from the back of the iPad whenever I put gentle to moderate pressure on it. The noise that comes from it sounds like something is un-sticking itself. Everything else functions fine, it's just this annoying noise.
Never experienced any noise with iPad original or any of the iPhones. But, iPad 2. I bought two iPad 2's - one is 16GB WiFi and the other AT&T 64GB. I noticed that when I connect to AUX in the car, there is a lot of hissing noise. Both the iPad 2's are like that. Never experienced this in the original iPad. Tried all sorts of options ... low volume, mute etc.
My new iPad is only 4 weeks old but in the past couple of days I have noticed a intermittent creaking/popping noise coming from the rear of the device near the logo.
I happens whilst holding the ipad as your fingers rest on the backplate.When you release your hand it pops/cracks.
Although its not affecting durability etc. its really annoying if anything and sounds as if something is loose behind. Not only that but it does it with just the slightest pressure and gets louder in use.
I noticed on teardown photos there's strips of glue or something holding the battery to the rear case. Could it be that? Would apple see this as a returnable/repair problem or me being OTT??
Has anyone else noticed that the Home button has a loud click noise when you press on it? My iPhone makes no click noise at all when you press on it, but my new iPad 3G sounds really loud. Am I the only that has this problem, or is it just the normal click sound of the iPad? To me it sounds annoying, especially when you are using it at night when it is quiet.
I bought iPad 2 64 gig 3G AT&T on the first day and during this weekend tried recording video, while replaying my clip I get this crackling noise in my video, I tried over and over with restarts but the noise doesn't go away.
I never intended to use my iPad as my primary recording device but I figured it is a nice option to have 1080p handy. Well just now my kids were doing something cute and I had my iPad in my lap so I put it on video and began shooting. Immediately I noticed how grainy the video was. I thought maybe it was a fluke and actual playback would be clearer. But when I played the video back it was just as grainy - lots of noise. Anyone else experience this? I'm kind of shocked since this doesn't seem like the high quality output I would expect from a 1080p recorder. I wonder if there are some setting adjustments that can maximize the camera?
Ok, I've found a few forums (reddit, apple, etc.) on clicking screen noise. My issue from what I saw on those forums wasn't exactly the same, or at least I don't believe so.
I just upgraded from an iPad2 to an Air with Targets promo last week. First thing I noticed was I was being what you might consider "aggressively" (quickly) tapping the screen in different areas (quickly tailoring the settings to my liking) I noticed there was like a "hollow" clicking noise when I tapped the screen. I didn't see any un-uniformly raised part of the screen. My wife and I did notice that it was more prevalent around the lower 1/3rd line on the screen, more towards the center than not, but slightly biased towards the left. When I'm slowly and gently touching the screen as far as I know there wasn't any "clicking".
Is this a known issue or is this due to the thinner screen technology? I know the iPad2 was built like a tank, but I just wanted to check before my 14 day window is up, although I know it would still fall under the 1 year warranty. I can live with it if it's the technology, but I just wanted to double check with everyone here because it caught me off guard.
I've been having problems with using headphone splitters on my iPad with the Apple In-Ear and the original Apple Headphones. It's a pretty simple problem, it's basically down to the mic being integrated into the jack. What I've found is, if I plug my headphones in, the sound is either distorted, or I'm only able to hear half of the sound track. i.e. only the background noise, not the voices on a film.
I've tried a few different splitters, the belkin moulded one, and a few other ones I had lying around the house, all have the same problem. The only solution is to strategically plug the headphones in but pulling them out slightly so they make a proper connection, but if you're on a train/plane with a girlfriend who can't get comfy, it usually gets knocked and you end up having to fiddle for a couple of minutes to get it in exactly the right position again!
When I use my Bose QC15s, I don't have a problem at all, it seems to be just a problem with the apple headphones. I thought it was the Belkin coupler at first, so I binned my first one and bought another but still had the same problem.
I have an iPad 2. In the past, I could communicate with other iPad 2 users without problem. I just tried again but I only heard static noise. I could not hear what the other side was talking. However, the other side heard what I said. I updated to iOS 5.1.1 recently. Not sure if this is the cause.
When I did my initial "sync", the process entered all of my calendars onto my iPad. They are not "connected" to caldav, exchange, etc. and do not update. So, what I'd like to do is to remove all calendars and add them manually. However, I've not found a way to do this - any suggestions? I have removed the mail accounts (and will re-enter them) but I haven't found the method for removing calendars yet.
The volume on my iPad is so low (with volume selected at a maximum) that it's impossible to watch any videos when on a plane. I've tried that with normal as well as with active noise reduction headsets. Anyone else having that problem ?Information:iPad
I bought an ipad 3 a couple of weeks ago. Whenever light pressure is applied to a certain area of the back of the ipad, and then removed, a light clicking, sort of popping noise comes from the area that was pressed against? as though the glue under the aluminium back is not set or something? it happens when i pick it up with one hand, and then reduce the pressure, quite often. i could post a youtube video demonstrating it if you like.
All of a sudden, my Ipad 3 screen has turned all speckly, it's like white noise across the whole screen, only it's made up of lots of colours (mainly black and white) and the spots are tiny. There is also a white band running from left to right around the area where the swipe bar normally appears and is about 1.5 inches wide. It's looked after pretty well and hasn't been dropped.
I can't see anything on the screen other than what I have described. My Ipad is passcoded, so can't connect to itunes. It is running ios5.
