    My iPad 3 never had nor does it have "overheating problems". I guess if you take it outside in the sun, in the summer when it is 95deg in the shade, turn the screen up to full brightness, and then play a game like MC3, it will develop problems.

    I don't notice much heat at all with the iPad 4.........just a little warmth on the back of the display after a long time being on.
    Of course, I can't say I noticed a huge deal on my iPad 3 either.

    I love the iPad 4.....Apple done good.

    There is heat where the cord plugs into the plug thingy. But that is the same with my laptops too. Otherwise neither my iPad 3 (only had less then 30 days) or the 4 never had heating up on the iPad itself.

    I was at the Apple store this weekend.......they had iPad 2, iPad 4......and even some iPad 3 models they were trying to sell out of.
    WoW......
    iPad 2 was cool to touch
    iPad 4 was just slight bit warm
    iPad 3 they had there was burning hot on the backside........so much so it would be completely uncomfortable to use.
    It was so hot I can't imagine it being good for the rest of the electronics inside the unit. Never noticed this with my iPad 3 when I had it but maybe I just never had it on long enough?

    Kind of revealing IMHO.....

    I wonder if they have the display brightness set at 100%, with it on all day long and at a setting like that I can imagine it heating up like an oven over time.

    I tested mine with screen on at 100%. It got to 116 def F after 30 minute. That is warm, not hot. It was not uncomfortable to hold unless you are just hear sensitive or something. But if one turns the screen on max brightness, it will get warm.

    I dunno....

    I never specifically checked the brightness settings on all 3 iPads I checked, but they all looked to be the same brightness and not excessive.
    100% brightness is blinding so I don't think that's the case.

    The difference in heat on the iPad 3 was astonishing...........crack some eggs on the back of the case and you'll be ready for breakfast in a few minutes. :D
    Can't be good for the internals.

    The iPad 4 was way cooler on the back.......not much warmer than the iPad 2.

    Frankly it is not an issue I own an ipad3 and ipad 2 and it is on 7/24. Sometimes brightness is up higher and comparing it with our iPad 2 it is seems fine. Some users turn up the brightness full and play heavy games then maybe it will feel warmer but nothing to be concerned with. I can assure you if it was an issue my lovely partner would let me know as that is one thing she hates about laptops.

    That must be right. Never had any heat problems after long use or recharging, with brightness usually about 1/3

    My iPad 4 was overheating when playing 3d games in the first days but I didn't experience any overheating problems this week.

    Lol. And deprive the delivery guy of some excitement?

    I actually rarely see the delivery people. They usually just leave stuff at the door.

    My 1st iPad 3 was warm. It had button problems and apple store replaced it. The second iPad3 is cooler. Neither was a problem to use because of the heat.
