The iPad Heat FakeroversyPosted: March 20, 2012
Here we go again. The new iPad reportedly runs as warm as 116 degrees when playing graphic intensive games. This is apparently 12-13 degrees hotter than the preceding model, the iPad 2. Even the testers admit that this is warm, but not really hot.
A few users have even gotten a heat warning on-screen…although in several cases, they were using the device in direct sunlight…never a brilliant idea with any battery powered electronic device.
This reporter can testify anecdotally that he has written this on one, and survived without any burns to the lap. What will the next silly non-issue be, and when will it be breathlessly reported? Stay tuned for a minute…that’s probably as long as you will have to wait!
