    Ok. Would watching YouTube videos cause it either? I have heard playing graphic intensive games is the main cause.

    What about on the wifi and 4G models? Does it get hot if I use it only for surfing the web and watching YouTube videos? I was thinking of getting the new iPad with 4g. Let me know ASAP thanks

    No it does not get hot.

    What we know about the heat problems is that they have nothing to do with 4G/3g or wifi only, they have to do with the processor. The consumer reports test was using a video game for 45 min. straight while plugged in. Devices do run hotter while plugged in, and the ipad charger charges relatively rapidly, so just unplug it when you want to use it.

     

    I think youtube videos are not taxing enough on the processor to cause an issue.

     

    That said, I do not own an ipad 2012 model. I am relying on CNET, Leo Laporte, and my own knowledge of HTML5, streaming etc.

     

    If you do find that it runs hot while indoors, (not just slightly warm under the processor after extended use), use your one year warranty and get a replacement.

    No of course not. 

    Just make sure you keep the brightness below the halfway point.

    Make sure you never use it for any of the most popular games for too long.

    Definitely make sure you never hold it or use it while charging with the charger plug connected.

    And did I mention keep it on a coffee table in front of you while using like Apple suggests and like shown on all the TV advertisements.

     

    If you think it's too hot to hold and you just don't like it make sure you take it back within 14 days of purchase.

    I took mine back on day 13 for a full no questions asked refund, and have not replaced it yet.

    The people on this forum that continually criticize anyone that posts with hot iPads are completely full of it.

    Most of them probably do not even own one.

    The best thing to do is to go and buy one, see if it's too hot, or if you can stand it, and just make sure you take it back

    within 14 days if you don't like it.

    That's what I did and the biggest mistake I made was listening to some of the BS on this forum.

    You're blowing this way out of proportion. It doesn't require so much skipping' and hopping. Maybe your experience deemed it fit for you to treat your iPad like a time bomb but I'm surely not having the same experience. First of all the battery last so long during normal use that I really do not find myself needing to charge while I use, ever. Second how can this person figure out how their iPad performs if they don't use it how the would most like to? Anyone purchasing an iPad should just use it and if they see nothing wrong great, if a little warmth doesn't agree with them then they can move to the next step and if it gets really hot where it triggers a warning then they should definitely take it back for an exchange. This isn't rocket science (it's tablet science) its not that complicated.

    Agree. Buy it, try it, take it back Within 14 days if you don't like. I promise this is the best advice you will get on this forum period.

    Another important piece of advice I Forgot to mention. if you're unlucky enough to get a hot one don't post here unless you want an army of professionals to rip you a new one.

    Amen, anyone who doesn't have a problem with heat shouldn't be posting here.  Anyone who posts "Mine runs fine" or "there is no problem" is wasting time and bandwidth that could be put to better use.  Anyone paranoid enough to post this: "At this point, my best guess for motivation is either a pure lulz play, or platform advocacy. Probably can't rule out foot-soldier-level AAPL stock mischief, either." should look outside for black helicopters and check their phones and homes for listening devices. 

     

    Why can't a new product from Apple have legitimate problems and why can't those who still want to use said product be able to come here for help?  The paranoids can relax, a few problem posts on a forum aren't going to take down Apple or their stock.  The reaction to heat is going to be relative, some people think it is very cold living near the beach, while others think it is hot or just right.  The facts are that the iPad3 runs hotter than its predecessors, accept it and leave this thread to those who think it is too hot.

    Perhaps you should try re-reading the thread title. Please note that there are at least two answers to this question.

    Anyone oblivious enough to miss the troll problem here should check their eyeglass prescription.

    If you knew the history of the thread, you'd know that I posted some of my own concerns about higher iPad temperatures. I realize that there will be mysteries for someone parachuting into a thread two months after the start.

     

    Problem is, the troll/sockpuppet infestation made productive discussions difficult or impossible.

    The idea that you'd discount the troll problem is among the best evidence that you're part of the group.

    I don't agree with you at all.  This forum should provide a balanced view and if you feel people like me who have no heat issues should refrain from posting you slant the thread in a very negative direction.  And let's be realistic.  Since the iPad was released, this thread started with a bang and is hanging on with a whimper as there seems to be a core group of people bent on keeping the "oh my it's hot" discuss going, with fewer and fewer new posters every day.

     

    Apple Fan From Tampa continues to post and yet the last couple posts I read suggest he returned his iPad.  So it would appear he doesn't even own one.  If I'm wrong, my apologies, but why would someone who doesn't even own the device continue to post?

    Just want to buy another iPad is the reason and want to stay in touch with the heat issues.
