    I everyone! Love this app!

    I have a question, I have an iPad 3, does anybody else experience their iPad heating up? I find that sometimes my iPad feels very hot - the cover I have on it has the vent opening, so I am not sure what the problem could be, if in fact there is a problem. Any information on this would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance

    The warmth of the iPad3 is a very common thing - mostly because the battery is almost twice the size. In addition, by design, the iPad's casing is used to "wick away" the heat from the internals. You will also notice that the iPad3 gets hotter when under heavy use (like a graphic/RAM intensive game or while charging).

    Again, this is quite normal behavior, so I hope it reassures.
