    Overheating?

    Well here is what I know to be true... Apple has not addressed the issue. I was able to improve the tolerance by placing some 3M clear solar window tint on my unit which makes it more tolerant to temp. This gave me a 10% improvement. The iPad 2 has the SAME temperature tolerance spec's as well...

    Overheating?

    Overheating?

    According tot the Tech he was a senior tech assigned to my ticket and he said "here is MY email address" and "test the new unit ASAP" and to let him know what happens. He said "They WILL fix the issue". All this implied they had taken the issue serious and were more than aware of the issue. I...

    Overheating?

    I spent an hour n the phone with Apple today on the issue. They have agreed to swap out my iPad. They had me test it along with my iPhone in direct sunlight at 75. The iPad would over heat in 10 minutes. The iPhone took double the time. Then they had me wip the iPad and try again to confirm it...

    Overheating?

    Overheating Yes I have. I have a 64gb. I can replicate it very easily, Go outside in the direct sunlight, on your deck or at the pool and use it when its 75 degrees plus. I won't take too long. This is unusable by the pool compared to my sad Sony eReader... It sucks.
