Apple Responds to Heat Complaints on New iPad

Apple issued a statement regarding the heat complaints about the new iPad. As reported by The Loop:
“The 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,” Apple representative Trudy Muller, told The Loop. “If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.”
As we previously reported, the complaints about warmth or heat seem to vary from customer to customer and may be dependent on the mix of apps that are being used.

That's fine, but I don't think you'll be in the majority with that belief.

There's a laughable over reaction to all of this. It's just a tiny bit of heat. I've used my iPad now for 4 or 5 hours straight. I played Fifa, Real Racer HD, mucked around with Garage Band, and there was a slight increase in temperature, but certainly not anything "too hot". Just mildly warm.

Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill!

That is a first-world beef if there ever was one.
