    There is a bug in touch keyboard of ipad3,

    When I press any button for bit long time then it start typing different words crazily. E.g if I press backspace for bit long to remove a line then even it starts typing different words rather then removing line.I am wondering allot about apple.

    Anyone else face such issue?

    This is highly unusual.

    Try restarting and or reseting the iPad, if you have not already done so.

    Another possibility. If you are using a third party charger, and it is doing this plugged in, try it without the charger and see if it's still doing it.

    -------------------------------
    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    That is indeed strange. It is not a problem happening with everyone, for sure.

    If the suggested solutions don't work,make a genius bar appointment at an Apple store.They may be able to help you. If not,your iPad is still under warranty and you should be able to exchange it for a new one.

    Then, as SciFan suggests, you should probably contact Apple support. It's probably a hardware issue.

    You're not jailbroke, are you?

    Take it to the Apple store as we advised and let them take a look at it.
