    Hi friends,

    for most apps my ipad air is cool as a cucumber. Even infinity blade 3 runs without warming up.
    But some games like xcom tend to make it very warm (but not hot).

    Just wondering what the user experience out there was....

    Thanks!

    Mine never seems to run hot. I play some games and use it for various other tasks. Doesn't affect my device.

    Every tablet I have ever owned (iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, Acer Iconia, Nexus 7 2012, Nexus 7 2013, Nexus 10) has had this characteristic...depending on what you are going. I measured the back of my 3nd gen iPad get up to 116DegF using a laser temp. So, bottom line, this is a normal thing. You cannot beat physics. If you run the device hard things will warm up. Tablets all have passive cooling meaning there is no fan inside to move the heat out. So, it gets moved to the case. The iPads are made of AL, which is a good thermal conductor, so it helps get the heat out (generally speaking, heat is the enemy of electronics). If you don't want to feel the warming of the body, but it inside a case (I keep all of my iPads inside a case anyway to help resale value).

    My Air does not get warm... I haven't played any games on it yet, nor have I watched any full length movies just some YouTube.

    A worm? I'd call apple quick and report that! Just kidding. Mine has felt warm on a few occasions but it's not alarming or a regular thing.
