    I am returning my new iPad to the Apple store this week after going back and forth with this heat issue.  It feels like a warm plate in my hands or on my lap, and it is 90 degrees where I live.  I don't have any of the other problems with wifi, screen, but I can't get use to the heat.  I own an ipad2 and I will stay with that until the next version...what a bummer.

    P. S. It is a new iPad 32GB, wifi only, production week 14, and I am only using Safari.

    I have my new iPad replacement and I have been using it all day. I'm surprised to say it isn't over warming like the first one did. In fact I haven't felt much heat at all. I'm happy with this replacement. Seems as tho some of the iPads had bugs or flaws in them as all products do when they are first unleashed.

    If I have any problems with heat later on as this is only the first day with it I will post it but as of now I am happy and I haven't had it on full brightness yet but that will come.

    After following the points made on this forum I have turned down the brightness on my iPad and must admit that so far no overheating problems. I'll try it out for a few days and let y'all know if it remains that way. Hopefully it will help with the battery life to, not being so bright that it obviously it will be using less energy.

    I am now a happy puppy :-)

    I bought my iPad WiFi 64gb from Apple online  on the first day it became available in Spain - a week after the US/UK.

     

    I works perfectly. After an hours use on an HD game at full brightness it just is a little warmer than at rest. About 10c at worst which I don't notice at all. The WiFi range is as good as my laptop and iPod Touch.

     

    Incidentally the built date is week 2 - surprising as it was delivered well after the first 3 million! Maybe they were stockpiling in Europe prior to a one week later launch.

    Could be no heating, but at the same time it could be having the issue, either way. Spain's temperature range is like 10-20 celcius currently. For environmental reasons, you may not experience the what some others are claiming.

    david.l Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So you presume that the temperature that it is being used is 10 to 20c?

     

    Actually the temperature at which I have been operating the iPad is a constant 24c. Fairly typical I would have thought.

    UPDATE!!!!!!!******$$$$$$$

     

    I had my iPad on full brightness yesterday all day (I kinda forgot it was on full brightness). But no overheating! The replacement from apple is a success! They either made it different (this one is from a different foxconn plant so idk chengdu plant btw), or they changed something inside. I'm very happy now it looks positive for heavy heavy usage. I'm going to test it on infinity blade II.

     

    If you are having overheating problems call apple they will be able to help. They helped me. They may be able to replace top your ipad because it is defective. If not get AppleCare+ $99.99 +tax  so you get 2 replacements for $49 each. I have AC+ so I'm covered now.

    Sounds good although problem with AppleCare in Europe is that one loses the 2 year garantee one automatically get with any manufactured goods provided by law. I was reading that Apple have been forced by the European courts to respect the 2 years over here, they where trying to avoid complying to them and still can through AppleCare.

    My iPad seems to be working fine now with the brightness screwed right down so I'll wait and see what Apple does about it wether they recall them or not. I doubt that they will as it may harm share prices although if they did it would probably increase the sales with people knowing they are dealing with an honorable company may even increase share prices. Could go either way I guess lol

    The 2 year EU warranty isn't worth much. You are only covered for 6 months - after that you have to prove that the fault was present at the time of sale. Everyone in the UK ignores it as the UK sale of goods act offeres better protection.

     

    The Applecare deal is far better.

    The UK hates everything about the eu and often cut their noses to spite their face. Here in Denmark they are very strict and if it is a manufacturing fault ie you have',t dropped in a pond or broken it or tried to open it then they have to comply either by fixing it or rembursing or giving you a new one. Most companys comply no problems but Apple have been trying not to. Damage or breakage would be covered by your home insurance anyway which most people have.

    Your correct. The Sale of Goods Act (often ignored) offers good protection - up tp 6 years. This is despite what manufacturers or retailers tell you.

     

    I claimed after 2 years for a replacement  3 piece suite. The shop said I only had 30 days warranty. I took them a copy of the sale of goods act, with the relevant parts highlighted. 6 weeks later I had a new suite.

     

    The Act simply says that certain items are expected to last longer than 12 months (depending what it is). Clearly, most people would expect a £3,000 three piece suite to last longer than 2 years! The springs completely collapsed.

    Excuse my English (not first language)

    Mine from production week 9 is definitely not overheating, but it gets warm over the time using it for about 30 minutes browsing the web which somewhat bothers me a little. I would say you wouldn't feel the warmth if you try not to notice it.  Strangely enough, I feel the same temp playing infinity bladeII as just doing normal tasks.

    Since you know the production week, you must have looked the serial up. Do you mind telling the code of the factory your iPad is assembled at? The first 2 letters of your serial refers to the assembly plant.
