Anyone got Tim Cook's number?
It seems someone on the iTunes team missed something.
Did you set it up from a backup from your prior iPad? If so, it just names it the same thing.
That's actually not a bad deduction.
Also found this issue and i set it up as a completely new iPad. Apple really missed some things with this release.
I did. Guess your spot on.
Reckon if I do a backup from this one it will right itself, or should I just go ahead and factory reset?
Actually, if you set it up from a backup of an iPad 2, it is now an iPad 2. Heavier with a bigger battery and a gorgeous screen that you'll never be able to upgrade again.
Sorry champ. Sad face ===>
PS: Like the cat.
Have the same issue. I then set up as new and still said iPad 2 for some reason.
Doesn't hurt to try, really!
Sadly have just confirmed for myself what you and jlyanks said.
Seems once you restore from backup, your device becomes an iPad 2. Hopefully pixels wont start forming, and my camera wont start degrading.
Have contacted support, as though I find it a bit amusing, and not really important in the great scheme of things, I can envisage this becoming a minor problem for Apple support as people ring them asking if they have been sold the wrong tablet.
Yeah, it doesn't work like that and you actually contacted support? Ha!
Well I'd rather Apple fixed it so the new iPad was listed as such and not iPad 2.
Even if you don't restore from a backup it still shows as an iPad 2. I set my iPad as new without restoring from a backup and it still shows it as an iPad 2 on this screen.
pretty sure mine simply says ipad. I'll have to double check later
set mine up from an iPad 2 backup, it did the same but when i checked on my apple account, registered items it says iPad gen 3
LOL reminds me of the first ipod touch having iphone referenced error messages.
I set up my 3rd gen iPad from a back up of a 1st gen iPad and it still says its an iPad 2.
glad to see a thread about this because yes, it bothered me when I checked my devices on iTunes. I set up my new 3rd generation LTE iPad as new and it lists mine as an iPad 2 Wi-Fi +3g. I also have an iPad 2 wi-fi and it lists that one as such. So I was thinking, "gee did I just pay $900 for a remanufactured iPad 2?" Of course not, but the mind goes there.
(As for the new iPad 3rd generation, it is clearly more clear than the iPad 2.)
Ditto. It actually made me take a second look at the new iPad, to make sure something wonky wasn't going on.
Same for me. I actually thought apple sent me a iPad 2 for a second instead of the 3rd, but noticed the differences and knew it has something to do with iTunes.
