New iPad reaches 116 degrees while running games!
Oh Christ no! The newest version of Apple's iPad is probably going to burn gigantic holes in your legs while you use it! See, it is significantly hotter than the iPad2 when it is running a game according to the charred remains of Consumer Reports testers.
They used a thermal imaging camera and recorded temperatures as high as 116 degrees Fahrenheit on the front and rear of the new iPad while playing Infinity Blade II.
This test follows a number of complaints about the heat generated by the new iPad while it is doing processor-intensive tasks. Running a game while the device is plugged-in seems to be the problem.
In addition to this, it has been noted that the new iPad doesn't charge when it is plugged in and playing games, with the battery draining away like our will to live.
So this is all terrible, terrible news right? Well, according to the tester: "during our tests, I held the new Ipad in my hands. When it was at its hottest, it felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period."
