New iPad overheating problems reported

Apple’s new iPad went on sale this Friday, on March 16. Demand for it is huge, this making the Cupertino company unable to ship current orders right away. At the moment, orders are being shipped “in 2-3 weeks”.

If you consider buying a new iPad, too, you should first hear this: over at the official Apple Support forums, there are many users reporting that the new tablet has overheating issues. Most of those who are signaling problems say that the new iPad (both the LTE and WiFi-only versions) gets “uncomfortably warm” on the bottom left side after being used for a short period of time (less than an hour).

You can read all the reports here (for now there are 12 pages full of posts from slightly disappointed iPad owners).

Apple has not officially confirmed any overheating issues with the new iPad. But I guess it will pretty soon, since more and more users are posting on its official forums about the problem.

    This isn’t CrApple’s first encounter in a long
    history of delivering faulty and dangerous gadgets and computers to the public.
    Just 10 years ago the G4 Titanium and Aluminum PowerBooks literally BURNED
    owners laps with 1st and 2nd degree burns!! The early MacBooks and MacBook Pros
    were also nearly as overly hot!  Then
    there was the spate of G3 PowerBooks that were too hot and fried power
    converters AC/DC and all the local school districts remember the G3 and G4
    iBooks debacle (I was IT consultant at one) where they had a 23% repeated
    failure rate of LogicBoards FRYING on this laptops!! Later MacBooks  and MacBook Pros had a uncommonly high rate
    of LCD failures as well!

    There were CrApple PowerBooks in the 90’s that
    actually caught fire with internal AC/DC converter spontaneously erupted! As
    well the notorious Blue/White G3 PowerMacs caught fire with faulty power
    supplies. G4 PowerMacs, G4 and G5 iMacs had a series of faulty Logic Boards and
    faulty power supplies that had far higher rates of failures than any brand of
    Windows PC’s! G5 Power Macs had cooling fans so loud that they sounded like a
    737 taking off and power supplies STILL failed. iPods have always had a history
    of batteries that died JUST AFTER the 1 year warranty expired … convenient!
    CrApple has still NOT made restitution to 1st Gen iPod owners for a lost
    lawsuit and government mandated refund! And this is just the tip of the Iceberg
    of CrApple product offenses (that they don’t make in the US with US labor)

    All this and the dopes that buy them for 3 Times
    what they cost to make by children in sweatshops in China! Hope you feel good
    about yourself being a delusional CrApple Media Hack. You’re just as guilty as
    CrApple corporate of the atrocities in those Chinese Factories.
