Apple has just responded to the new iPad heating issues we reported earlier, where some users have been complaining on online forums that their new iPad feels a lot warmer than iPad 2 after extended usage.
The Loop reports:
“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,” Apple representative Trudy Muller, told The Loop. “If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.”
As we had reported earlier, though the new iPad ran 10 degrees hotter than iPad 2 it was still within operating temperature limit [32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C)], which has been mentioned on the new iPad’s tech specs page.
While most users have reported that the new iPad gets warmer than the new iPad 2, it doesn’t get hot, not even laptop warm, some users have reported that it gets too warm, making it difficult to hold the new iPad. If you’re one of them then it may be a good idea to contact AppleCare.
