A new survey shows that the vast majority of new iPad users have not experienced any heating issues at all. Changewave Research asked new iPad owners how much of a problem (if any) they had with excessive heat on their 2012 iPad.
No fewer than 89% of those surveyed said it’s not a problem / they haven’t experienced a problem. The number for those who said it is a very big problem: 0%, goose egg.
I have said I thought this was a non-issue from the outset, so count me in the 89%. It’s interesting to see that even Consumer Reports, who initially played up the ‘overheating issue’ have now given the new iPad a strong recommendation.
More interesting results from the Changewave survey of new iPad owners include:
— Customer satisfaction with the new iPad is at a hugely impressive 98%, just ahead of the iPad 2. A staggering 82% of owners are very satisfied, and 16% are somewhat satisfied.
— When asked about specific features they like best, the retina display was the runaway winner – with 75% of owners giving it the nod. Long battery life was second, with 22%, followed by 4G LTE capability and speed of device / faster processor.
— When it comes to things they dislike about the new iPad, the top choice was cost of the device, chosen by 26%. A close second (at 23%) is cost of the wireless data plan.
Though this was a fairly small survey (200 new owners) the results are very clear. New iPad owners are very, very happy campers and very few have any concerns at all about overheating.
