    We all know of the iPad getting relatively warm. I for one always keep my smart cover attached to my iPad. Today I happened to take it off, and noticed this scorch mark on the part where the bottom left of the iPad connects. Anyone else have this happen? I'm not really worried about it. Just something to discuss.

    Personally I would find this worthy of a trip to the apple store. I know they run warm but physical damage resulting from the higher temp no matter how minor I find unacceptable. At a minimum they owe you a new smart cover.

    I can only answer for my post when I say no I'm not kidding.

    You find an iPad that leaves a burn mark on a smart cover ok?

    It is possible this particular unit is overheating and the damage to the smart cover is a result.

    The short version is someone would be picking up the tab for a damaged smart cover.

    Given they're both Apple products and designed to work together, I'd say take it to the Apple store too.

    What's the worst they can say?

    I have an outer box defender case on my iPad and I have not experience any troubles , I would take it into the apple store and invest in another case.

    Mine get's nowhere near warm enough to even hatch an egg, never mind fry one.

    What you have there is a defective unit.
