    Try adjusting the screen brightness. 30 - 50 % are enough. It also helps save battery power.

    Double tap the Home button to reveal the multitask bar, then swipe to the right to get here.

    Also, you could reboot your iPad and see if that will help. Press and hold Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

    If your problem still persists, you should visit the next Apple store.

    You may find that the iPad will run hot in extremely hot weather.

    It's probably a good idea to use it in cooler areas which are shady. That's how thing work for me in the UK.

    BTW. Try searching on the forum for the term overheating. :)

    Define "hot" please. All electronic devices get warmer when pressed into hard, usually video related, use. I have had the iPad1, iPad2, and currently we have two iPad 3s and a Mini. None have ever gotten uncomfortably hot. The 1 and 2 are still used daily by family members, ditto - no problem.

    My iPad was heating up uncomfortably in very hot sunny weather of 32°C while I was using the forum and checking emails or playing a card game. My usage was not too demanding.

    Hi Marie..... - what model iPad do own? The newer ones might become somewhat warmer than the early models, such as my iPad 2. Also good suggestion to keep the screen brightness lowered; also, make sure that 'auto-lock' is is on (Settings -> General) and be careful about using the iPad outside on a hot day (quote below from Apple's website HERE).

    Also just found a couple of interesting threads from MacRumors that might be of interest - one apparently checking a log for the iPad's internal temperatures - have not even given the suggestion a try yet, but will soon out of curiosity:

    Easily see how hot your new iPad is getting from its log files

    Could iPad heat have any damaging effect on the lithium polymer battery?
