AppleInsider reports today on new rumours that its newest iPad has been running hotter than the iPad 2. This came about after an infrared test by Dutch site Tweakers.net found the new iPad to be running 10 degrees hotter than the iPad 2, with the new iPad measured at 92.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and the iPad 2 measured at 83 degrees Fahrenheit. Despite the apparent increase, AppleInsider reports that the new iPad is still running at well within Appleâ€™s optimum operating temperature of 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Not everyone has had an issue with the iPad running hotter, and those who have posted about the matter on Appleâ€™s support forums have simply said that it feels warmer to the touch; there have not been any significant claims of the new iPad overheating. Even so, Apple has acted swiftly to address the issue, with Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller today issuing the following statement to The Loop:
â€œThe new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns, they should contact Apple Care.â€
