New iPads too hot to handle

Apple Inc. (AAPL)'s new iPad runs "significantly hotter" than the earlier model when handling processor-intensive tasks such as playing graphics-heavy games, according to Consumer Reports, which tested the device.
The newest version of the market-leading tablet computer ran as hot as 116 degrees Fahrenheit (47 degrees Celsius), the magazine said yesterday on its website. Consumer Reports, published by the consumer-watchdog group Consumers Union, used a thermal-imaging camera to record the temperature while playing the action game "Infinity Blade II."
Paul Reynolds, electronics editor for the magazine, downplayed the results.
"We don't think this is a cause for any serious concern," Reynolds said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. At its hottest, the iPad "felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period," Consumer Reports found, says Bloomberg.


However, thermal testing performed by Consumer Reports has demonstrated that the iPad 3 runs about 10 degrees Fahrenheit (~5 degrees Celsius) hotter than its predecessor, and reached a maximum temp of 116 degrees while running Infinity Blade II for 45 minutes.Consumer Reports stopped short of declaring the next antenna-gate, concluding that the iPad 3 "felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period" during use.
Interestingly, the iPad 3 only reached a temperature of 113 degrees while unplugged. It wasn't until the device was plugged in to a charger that the temperature rose further still to 116 degrees.
While running the test the battery continued to drain slowly - even while plugged in, showing that the new iPad is unable to simultaneously run processor-hungry apps and charge the battery, informs Tapscape.
