Apple Responds to Complaints of New iPad 3 Overheating

The New iPad

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.

    It burnt my thighs and I returned it. Boy was I pissed. I only had it two days. It was scorching! Only playing a bubble popper game.. Wish I could post the photo of my red thighs. I am very disappointed. I  waited since Christmas for tithe i3. I got a iPad2 64gb 3g off ebay this week. No heating issues can play the same bubble game and not get burnt! Also charges faster!! Hopefully Apple will fix this so I can get the 4g LTE again. BTW we haven’t had any similar issues with my kids two iPad 2’s either so it is definitely  an iPad3 issue.

    Just purchased new iPad but am taking it back for refund – if I wanted to sit a device on my lap that became uncomfortable due to warming up then I simply would have bought a laptop….previous models never warmed let alone to the point of being uncomfortable…..apples response on the issue is even more reason to take it back…..
