New Tests Prove The Overheating Claims For New iPad Are Exaggerated
When we talk about the initial sales, there is no doubt that the new iPad from Apple has been very successful. Overall, we can call it successful but it also brought some usual dose of hitches and gripes.
There were a few issues found by the users of the new iPad which include overheating and WiFi connectivity. Well, the issues with WiFi signals strength are still here but according to some recent tests conducted by a number of tech outlets, we have found out that claims regarding overheating of the new iPad are somewhat exaggerated. There is no doubt that the new iPad is a little warmer than its processor, but it does not heat up dangerously and there is no harm of any damage or any risk of injury.
The guys at PCWorld magazine, texted temperatures of various latest tablets and the results suggest that the claims about overheating in the new iPad are indeed exaggerated. According to the initial tests, we already know that according to the infrared thermometers, the new iPad has 2-7 degrees Fahrenheit higher temperature than the iPad 2 which only makes less than 4 degree Celsius.
Since the launch of the new iPad, tech world has been comparing it with the iPad 2, and have completely forgotten that we have other tablets on the market as well. Well, it basically makes sense because there are no tablets from other manufacturers that has come close to Apple’s offering. But still, similar devices like Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 had same temperature bracket of the new iPad. It means that we should not worry about the heating problem of the new iPad anymore.
This news will bring a lot of relief to all those millions of users who have newly bought this third generation iPad by queuing for hours on end to get their hands on it. The website report also states that the temperatures of the new iPad rose during charging, playing graphics intensive game for an hour while the charger is plugged in, the highest temperature reached was 100 degrees Fahrenheit which is about 38 degrees Celsius. This temperature is only 2 degrees higher than that of the Galaxy tablet which makes it normal. Take a look at the complete chart here:
So, we can say the overheating issue of the new iPad has been solved but still the attentions will now completely divert towards the WiFi complaints from many users. In this case, nothing is different as most of the complaining users are comparing the new iPad with the iPad 2. But this is right as well, as the new iPad brings 4G capability and it should be able to offer a better WiFi connectivity or at least as efficient as it was in the iPad 2.
It is highly expected that Apple will resolve this WiFi issue with a future software update very soon.
