Apple Responds to Reports of New iPad Heat Issues

by on March 20th, 2012

Apple has responded to numerous reports of the new iPad running hotter than normal, in a press release to The Loop:

“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.”

Personally, one of the first things I noticed with my new iPad was the bottom left of the device to run warmer than my former iPad 2, which always remained cool. While the heat didn’t scald my hands or anything, it was just warmer than what I was used to.

Are you noticing any heat issues with your new iPad?

    I can definately feel the HEAT especially while playing Sky Gamblers only after a few minutes it gets very warm. I want to do something about it but obviously its not possible. I will just have to get used to it…

    Same. BTW, Sky Gamblers is pretty fun, the graphics are pretty awesome.

    Nothing that I’m worried about. Slight increase in heat during gaming but during general use with the brightness at about 60%, the iPad runs and feels fine.

    pretty fun, its awesome, i hope they have updates with more levels when i complete the game. its great over airplay aswell

    I think of the heat as a bonus feature to the iPad because usually my hands are cold so now I get a heat pack included

    Well you can’t up the GPU to a Quad Core, pack it into pretty much the same form factor and not expect the iPad Thermal properties to change.  Same can be said for Macbook Pros.
