Apple calls it "The New iPad"
iTunes calls it "iPad2"
Apple does not call it "The New iPad"
They call it iPad, or the new "iPad"
Well regardless to what Apple is calling it, iTunes thinks its an iPad 2.
Why not just go into settings and name it what ever you want and that is what will show up in iTunes? Some people just need something to complain about. When I connected mine it said iPad. Maybe you bought a 2 by mistake. That would be too funny.
I suspect that just means iPad #2. If you add another one, it will be "iPad 3".
I only have 1 iPad associated with iTunes.
Thats why I took a screen shot showing the model number of the iPad, its definitely the newest one. Its not naming issue, what the device is named is shown between the ( ), its what iTunes detected the model to be. I'm not complaining about it, just pointing it out.
Mine is doing the same thing FWIW.
Do you think Apple calls their Macs OptimusPrime as well? No, they don't - YOU do. iTunes calls your iPad whatever you tell it to. Did you do an iCloud restore from an older iPad 2 to your new iPad? That's where the name came from I bet.
You obviously didn't pay attention to anything here.
The name that you name the iPad is in (). Hence (iPad) and (OptimusPrime). The name Apple has given the device is before the (). Not hard folks.
OP, did you update iTunes to 10.6?
Yep, sure did.
Ah, I see. Two different components to the name. Hmm. Haven't connected my iP3 to my Mac yet, I wonder what it'll show...
Who cares? Dumb post.
Hehe. Rereadeing my post I realize it sounded snarky but I didn't mean it as such. Sorry about that.
And yep, mine shows up as an "iPad 2 Wi-Fi" as well. I guess the iTunes group (or iCloud group, since it's in the iCloud devices page?) missed a text string to update.
Pointless comment, move on if you don't care, like I said was simply just pointing it out.
