Some Apple consumers say the new iPad runs hot, so Consumer Reports decided to test it. They used thermal imaging to see how hot the new iPad got while running video games. It was 12 degrees hotter than the iPad 2.
Yesterday, Dutch website Tweaker.net reported the new iPad ran about 10 degrees hotter than the iPad 2. Today, Apple responded by saying the new iPad "delivers a stunning...display...plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications."
Consumer Reports said the extra heat does not pose a serious concern.
