The latest iPad introduced by Apple Inc, has recently invited a lot of complaints on the various Internet forums. All the comments resonated the same fact – the new Apple iPad gets uncomfortably hot and warm, after repeated and heavy usage.
Consumer Reports, which is a widely followed group that reviews all of the products ranging from cars to electronic items etc, run their tests and discovered that the new Apple Tablet gets as hot as 116 degrees Fahrenheit (or 47 Celsius) right after running a 45 minute long hard core action game. As compared to the previous version, the new version gets 13 degrees Fahrenheit hotter.
And that is not all. A lot of users have also experienced issues while trying to charge the Tablet and using it at the same time. Though must of the reports on the Consumer Reports revolves around the heat that the tablet throws out, there is also the mention of the issues pertaining to charging the latest Apple gadget.
We also noticed that the new iPad wasn’t charging while the game was running and it was plugged in. In fact, the battery continued to drain. It charged normally, however, when we weren’t running a game.
We experimented with the product in question, and must say our own personal experiences resonates completely with the complaints raised by the users. The problem persisted while we used the app that require the latest Retina Display feature of Apple tab. The reason for the same is the amount of load which is accumulated due to the similar feature.
While you are performing the ordinary tasks with your iPad, the battery is used just fine but the moment you start using the device for much more intensive and hard core games and apps, the processor and the high resolution screen outputs demands and completely out strips the 10W power provided by the adapter, while the charging is on.
In simple words, it would suffice to say that the device is just too over whelmed with work when you run at its peek, that it just ignores the charging requirement at that time. Thus, when the other iPads would charge while the charger is plugged in, the latest iPad only let its battery being drained when you are running and intensive application.
The solution to the same may come in the form of using a more powerful charger, for instance the 45W MagSafe Power Adapter for the Mac Air. Although one should not miss out the fact that Apple is a smart organization and they must have experienced the same issue at the testing stages. If even after that the issues still persists, it is unlikely that the issue would be fixed so easily.
As far as Apple Inc is concerned, they have disregarded the issue of the increase in the temperature of the devices, saying that the new iPad is ”operating well within our thermal specifications”.
