Oit of interest does the new iPad have any water sensors in the headphone jack or dock connector?
for sure both places
Hmm...Ok. Did have a look and couldn't see any. I know the iPad 2 did not have any.
couldnt see mine either. i was curious too! hmmmm
I couldn't see one in the dock connector, but it's pretty easy to see the one in the headphone jack.
The original iPad had 2 one in the dock one in the headphone jack. The ipad2 has none and the new iPad is lacking them too.
The New iPad have 1 in the Headphone Jack and 2 in the Dock Connector i just saw them is very Deep in the headjack try Unsing a lamp
Ahh, now I know why when you take one into the Apple store to buy Applecare + that's the first thing they do...
Looks like they stopped trusting customers again then lol. There was none in iPad 2.
I'm admittedly a total newbie on the suject of iPad water sensors.
I assume these sensors are installed to signal whether water/liquid has entered the iPad dock/headphone sockets, so ...
1) What specific locations on the iPad 3 are the water sensors located.
2) Exactly what do the sensors look like?
3) What does one look for on the sensor to determine whether it's been activated by water/liquid or not?
4) Closeup pics of these iPad water sensors would be appreciated.
1) As someone mentioned (I don't have an iPad 3 so idk), one down the headphone socket and two up the dock connector.
2) White pieces of plastic-y/paper-y looking stuff (typically small circles 2-3 mm in diameter).
3) The white circle turns pic.
4) Can't do, sorry. Most electronics have them sorta hidden in them and unibody devices make them hard to find. If you have an old phone that has an insertable battery, you can usually find one by taking the battery out.
I know they were having issues with people not being in contact with water setting them off. There have been cases when people go to the gym with their phone in their pockets and the sheer moisture has been setting them off. I'm guessing a sensor could be internal and not as exposed in the previous versions.
