    Has anyone else noticed how hot the back of the new iPad gets? Especially in the bottom left hand corner (when facing the screen) Mine gets very hot, not just warm and I don't recall this happening with my first iPad or the second one. I've only been using it for about 2 hours off and on. Anyone else notice this?

    The increased battery size is the apparent culprit. It's normal.

    Too hot to hold?

    I had two brand new iPhone 4's in a row replaced as they were getting so hot they almost couldn't be touched. Apple & Orange swapped them straight away and said it was a 'safety risk'

    We are talking really hot though, not just warm!

    Yes me too but it's probably because of the processor
