It’s been less than a month since Apple introduced the New iPad. And a new study by ChangeWave Research shows that most users of the New iPad are quite pleased with their new purchase.
A survey of 200 new owners a week after the device was released showed that four out of five users (82 percent) were very satisfied with the new iPad and 16 percent were unsatisfied. Only 2 percent were somewhat unsatisfied and no owners were very unsatisfied. ChangeWave Research says that the survey results were higher than previous surveys.
The survey also asked users what features they liked or disliked the most. Three-quarters of users rated the high-resolution “Retina” display as their favorite feature, followed by longer capacity and the devices 4G LTE capability.
As for what users disliked most, one in four (26 percent) disliked the cost of the new iPad, followed by the cost of the device’s wireless data plan (23 percent) and its size/weight (8 percent).
Additionally, the survey addressed a report issued by Consumer Reports that stated the New iPads have a heat issue, with some heating up to as much as 116 degrees Fahrenheit when plugged in and running a game.
The verdict? According to the survey, only 4 percent of users had somewhat of a problem, with none reporting it as a big problem at all. Eighty nine percent of users reported no problem at all.
