    Hi,

    A couple weeks ago, it was really hot out side (35 degree or so), I was out with my iPhone and the a msg popped up on the screen saying the phone's temperature was too hot and it needed to cool down.

    It's just as hot today, I'm thinking about taking my iPad outside to the park. But not sure if it can handle the heat. Has anyone encountered similar issues?

    Yes, I have a custom mount I built in my convertible for my iPad and was out with the top down and the iPad shut down because it got too hot.

    I suppose like any electronic device it would be prone to overheating. Just try to avoid letting it bake in the sun and it should be okay.

    Wow, that must be hot. Unlike my laptop, I can never feel heat coming from My Ipad 2 itself. I suppose that is part of the reason why it has a 10 hour battery life, because it's pretty efficient.

    Of course, it makes sense that all electronic devices are prone to heat at some point in time unless designed specifically to combat it...

    You could try sitting on the shade?

    "Use iOS devices where the ambient temperature is between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). Low- or high-temperature conditions might cause the device to change its behavior to regulate its temperature. Using an iOS device in very cold conditions outside of its operating range may temporarily shorten battery life and could cause the device to turn off. Battery life will return to normal when the device is brought back to higher ambient temperatures." -- http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201678

    Hold in mind that direct sunlight can up the stakes and cause an overtemp warning at lower ambient tempratures.

    Yes I guessed something like that; I was just kidding around

    I wasn't picking on your response, just adding Apple's official information into the conversation.

    Because, shade does help. At least up to a point.
