The New York Times has a recent post up titled ‘Some iPads Can’t Take the Heat’ – detailing some recent issues users have been running into with iPads overheating. When they get hot under the collar, they generate a temperature warning and then do a graceful shutdown.
They cite a couple of recent examples as well as recent Apple support discussions on overheating. One of the recent examples mentions a person who took their iPad to the beach. That jumped off the page at me. Who takes an iPad to a beach? I don’t care what kind of case you’ve got on it, I can safely say my iPad is never getting anywhere near a beach.
Anyway, as we’re hitting summertime – the ‘burn the skin off your hands on the steering wheel’ phase of the year here in Texas – I’m curious if any of you are seeing overheating issues with your iPads. Let us know in the comments.
