    My biggest disappointment is the heating up of the bottom corners of my iPad. Is this happening to your new iPad?

    I was concerned with this as well but after several hours of continuous use the overheating went away.

    This is going to vary depending on how the battery is discharging or recharging! Most people with a case won't even know that it is happening.

    I don't use a case, and hopefully the heat will go away, because My hand is getting hot...

    1 hour of use...

    I've been running my new iPad for over an hour now and it is still cool to the touch no heat in any of the corners.

    I'm currently charging, so maybe it's hit while charging?

    After i activated the verizon account, i watched a one hour video over wifi with the cellular radio still on. Suddenly, my whole screen changed to "temperature warning...ipad must cool down before you can continue using it." it shocked me because that is a first, never had that ever on the ipad 2. Then the screen went black. I immediately pressed the home button, and slid to unlock, and it came right back on. It stayed warm, i left it in the cover it is in. And so far it hasnt happened again. But apparently Apple knows this can get hot because there is a warning that can show up. Did some looking and apparently the ipad 2 also could produce that warning but i never saw it nor felt heat on the 2. This new one definitely gets warm on mid to lower left side.
