    What about the 116 earlier? Are all of these researchers just testing 1 model at a time?


    I think that this just proves that some of ours definitely gets hotter than others...


    I guess my search for the perfect iPad continues

    Yes, I read that and thats ok for me.. you can feel a decent heat rise from the ipad 2 compared to the New ipad when surfing the web and doing minor tasks etc..., which is fine, I dont have a problem with that. I actually bought all the HD games designed for the New ipad, because I wanted to see what this baby could do and its impressive! But every single one makes the New ipad get HOT, not luke warm but HOT after 20-30 minutes and after myabe 45 mins I turn the game off because its just to hot on the whole back and the corner glass. Im not worried, if it fries I will return it for a new one:)

    I don't own an Android device either. Regarding the seriousness of posting - since when does any discussion on the internet not degrade into stupidity?


    One thing that is disappointing, is that pilots whom have purchased iPad 3's can't use them as intended, and that's to store charts and checklists. Anyone who knows anything about airplanes knows temps can vary widely in the cockpit, especially a dark one. Just the trek across the tarmac can cause issues.

    I just called into Apple and told the guy what the problem was and he transferred me to a manager. I told him what was going on and he said they just started to get alot of calls on the Heat issue and he would keep me posted and they were looking into it..

    If you think your is getting hotter then other ones you should go to the Apple Store and ask for a replacement ... u r entitled too ..


    BTW .. there's no such a thing as a perfect product

    I see a few comments about Real Racing 2.  Makes me think even more that Apple pulled that app off the demo devices.


    I didn't read all 350+ messges here, but the recent ones appear pretty sincere.  I don't see any outright bashing.  I see disappointment, which I share.  I have a 1st-gen unit.  Wasn't enough in iPad 2 to warrant me getting one.  I was waiting for the upgraded display.

    So I decided to do some investigative reporting


    I went to an Apple store, an AT&T store and a Verizon store to test out the display models.


    In summary: ALL models were warm. ALL of them. However, some were warmer than others and in once case one model (Verizon 4G) was as uncofortably warm to hold as the model I bought (64 GB Verizon 4G).


    While at the Apple store I spent about 20 to 30 minutes trying to get an iPad as hot as possible by turning  the brightness all the way up and play youtube videos and playing games. It was warm but I could never get it up to the same heat levels I was experiencing with the model I purchased.


    I made my way around the table and held all the iPads. I would describe all of them as warm, but not uncomfortably so. I did finally find the 5th model I tested very warm like I had experienced with the model I purchased. It was significantly hotter than all the ones I tested. It felts terrible to hold.


    Lastly, I made my way to Verizon store. I found an iPad with the Verizon LTE service. The model was plugged in. I spent close to 1 hour downloading, browsing the web, playing games, turning up the brightness to 100%, connected and disconnected, it was even on LTE! But I could not get it to heat up. While it was noticibly warm, it was never to a point where it was bothersome or uncomfortable. Wish this was the model that I had bought.




    So with my testing, I concluded that it's natural for all iPads to get warm, but there is no doubt that there exists a percentage of iPads out there that get excessively warm or even hot. If your iPad gets overly warm where it is uncomfortable to hold or worse yet shuts off due to excessive heat, take it back before your 14 day return window expires. This is not normal behavior.

    Do you know how much use each iPad had received before you "felt" them for temp?  Did you take accurate temp measurments of any kind?


    Listen everyone, this is very simple.  The CPU/GPU in this device runs a little warmer than the CPU/GPU in the last model.  It has nothing to do with the display brightness or network.  It has everything to do with what the CPU is doing.  Thats all there is to it.  Please put an end to all of your very unscientific tests end theorizing.

    Ok I am new to the iPad, but have had an iphone for years.  I saw the new screen and took the plunge.  Bought a black 32gb wifi and really like it.  I do not run the screen at 100% as it seems to bright for my taste.  I have run movies on it and some HD games and it got slightly warm to touch, but I wasn't sure if it was the battery or just from me holding it.  It never has heated up to even moderately warm. I did run the battery all the way down to 0 and then recharged.  My iPad recharged at about 20% an hour.  So far I am really liking it, just have to find a good cover.

    Many sites have now confirmed that the CPU gets warm (not uncomfortably hot) under heavy use.  It's nothing to worry about.

    Apple has a rush to market history that makes it pointless to buy the first of any of their products. From my time when I had a Apple IIE to today , its better than we wait it out. I feel sad for the first 3 million customers, but then again thats Apple and its greed. Its targeting the good old ínnovators' who are easy prey and want to be tready - and poor!   Us wiser IT duds just sit back and laugh it out.  guess my old bush camp could do with some egg fryers....But will it kill all the germs ????? LOL

    or buy Apple's new flame proof gloves with buit in water cooling.. Going fast out the door.  Be in the first million and get a free lap ice pad to protect your DNA!

    I don't Understand this at all... SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST WEIRD.. If your freaking iPad gets warm/hot.. Does it burn you? Does it cause pain? If it does then you have a defective unit, so exchange it or get your money back. you guys have legit reason. For rest of you who say it gets warm (which seems to be majority here) so what???.?.? What is the big deal I am not understanding it. It runs hotter then iPad 2. So what?.. Big freaking deal.... All laptops run warm to different degrees. Do you go and complain about that as well. First freaking iPhone would get toasty after 20 minute conversation.. So what?  it feels warm big deal. It still worked perfectly fine.. So if your new iPad is warm and it works perfectly fine what the **** is the problem. Are your hands too sensitive to handle something bit warm. In that case stay away from warm food too! Even if it runs at 116 or whatever.. Who cares.. Every single review pointed to this fact but it is NORMAL... Because the freaking screen has more resolutions then your HD TV which until a year ago could be used as a room heater..


    Got my new iPad on day 1' had yellow tint just like on iPhone 4 and 4s and it is already diminishing. Almost gone.. Played real racing 2 today for like and hour with a buddy online. iPad got warm borderline hot..so what.. Didn't slow down, didn't drain battery any faster then real racing 2 did on iPad 2 or 1 ...  Best iPad yet...




    I really dont get it...


    IF YOUR IPAD RUNS WARM AFTER LIGHT USAGE "IT'S OK". If your iPad runs slightly HOT after intense usage and it doesn't make your hand feel like French toast "YOU ARE OK"

    I realize it's not a perfect test. That would have required reset all iPads install the exact same software and expose to the exact same use while using some temperature gauge . Not feasible at an Apple store. I did however spend 2 hours throughly testing three units. Two of them never got more than mildly warm, while the 3rd was very warm and uncomfortable to hold.


    Why is it so hard to belive that there are defetive units out there? Antenna gate was real. The short battery life with the 4S was real. Just because you have a properly working unit does not mean somebody else did not get a defective one. It might be 1% or 50% or .0001%. I don't know, but I do know most of the new iPad owners on here don't like the excessive heat their new iPad is producing. Myself included.


    What I was trying to figure out was if this heat issue is normal or not. If it is NOT normal and the unit is defective, I then want to exchange for a propoerly working one. If I do find that it is in fact normal, I then have to figure out if I can live with it or not.
