Many users of the New iPad 3 have complained that their new device often overheats after long usage. The iPad 3 heating up is expected by some to be a result of the higher resolution display and the faster processor. Although some users have reported only a small amount of heat, others have reported that they could not hold their devices due to the overheating.
Apple responded via The Loop, to the issue, saying:
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.
Users of the New iPad 3 typically have 30-60 days to return the iPad if they are not satisfied with it and also have the option of taking their new device to the Genius bar for replacement at any of Apple’s retail locations.
In addition to overheating customers have also noticed that the new iPad takes longer to charge. This is due to the fact that Apple increased the size of the battery to give same 10 hour battery life on single charge.
