Apple’s New iPad Runs Hotter

Apple’s New iPad Runs 10°F Hotter than iPad 2
‎‎
No one would disagree with the fact that Apple’s new iPad is hotter than iPad 2, if not by looks, then by a number of new features including the stunning Retina display and the faster A5X processor. This heat is indeed pleasing for those fortunate users who already have the new device. But what if you are told that your new iPad literally runs a lot hotter than its predecessor? Yes, it’s been claimed in some reports that while running graphics-heavy tasks, Apple’s newest device runs as much as 10 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than the iPad 2.

On late Monday, Engadget cited a report by Dutch website Tweakers.net (translated) that claimed that the new iPad runs 10 degrees hotter than its predecessor when its improved GPU found inside the A5X package is tasked with running standard GLBenchmark for a couple of minutes. The report was accompanied by thermal imaging photos of the iPad 3 and iPad 2 put next to each other.

However, Apple said there’s no problem with the heating issue as the device operates “well within thermal specifications.” A company spokesperson told The Loop:
“The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.”
