Yesterday we reported the overheating issued of the New iPad runs a little warmer than previous generation models. This problem caused some concern for users who are saying that their own iPads are getting far too hot.
Apple was contacted about this and has responded with the following:
“The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.”
On many online forums, users say that there are differences between the temperatures of the older and new iPad models. They say that New iPad does not get “hot”. It just warms up a little and seems to happen after using it for a couple of hours.
Tweakers.net used a thermal camera to see exactly what the temperature difference was on their test unit. Under average use the New iPad runs 4.3 degrees C warmer.
