    People: make sure you include info about which iPad you have.  LTE?  Wifi only?  Details matter.  And, really now, "frying eggs?"

     

     

    Yeah, bacon would be better!

    Mine is very very hot on botto, left, whirl just surfing, not a gamer, I have 32 wifi only .. Thanks.. As for eggs, the heat would make egg whites gel up slightly I'd say.. :(

    It is warmer to the touch than my original iPad and my iPad 2 were but I wouldn't exactly characterize it as "overheating" it's just warmer to the touch than previous models...time will tell if it gets worse....we have to remember though...in essence its mostly a giant battery....

    Let me be clear, hot or not.. I LOVE it.. And when it explodes they won't be able to pry it from my dead hand.. Because this screen clarity and speed is Smokin!!  Bahaha

    It definitely shouldn't be too hot to hold comfortably. If it is, it's in your best interest to take it back, and get a new one (if they determine its a problem.)

     

    If the issue is that you want to play with it while its new, just keep using it until there are plenty in stock at the stores (as long as you are inside the return window) and take it back then.

    This might be wrong or unsolve the issue but since black conducts more heat is it possible that the new processor + the black iPad work together creating more heat because I see a lot of you all have the black iPads and I noticed my black iPad 1 was hot on one side of the glass but my white iPad shows no sign of heat at all

    UGGH!!!! My Black 64 gig 3 g is very hot on the bottom left side!   I guess it time we all start reporting to the media this problem.   Thats the only way apple will except this issye.

    My new iPad is also overheating, bottom left like everyone else. The screen is great, but the heat is near unbearable at times and makes my hands sweaty while holding it.

    sounds like the processor or A5X Chip is working on it maximum power usage

    This caused the batteries to swell and crack the case in some recent MacBook Pros.  Do you think the same problem can occur with the new iPad?

    Mine got a little warm while restoring from back-up.  Since then, no issue at all with it warming.  It's a 64gb Wi-Fi 4G...

  • mvaug10087 Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    Well, I've just been into my local Apple store and the new iPads on display were all noticeably warmer than my iPad 2 ever gets. Difficult to say but I think I might find it a bit irritating. It's obviously due to the battery, and probably woth monitoring.

    That's exactly what I experienced.  While initially setting up and transferring data, my new 64 gig wifi iPad got warmer than my previous wifi iPad 2.  I was surprised and googled it.  Since the initial setup, it hasn't run very warm at all.
