Thats because the new battery is almost the size of a laptop battery. Apple is starting to reach too far with their products.Technology needs to catch up with batteries.My new ipad is quite warm on the left hand side, even through a case - sounds like it's fairly common. I'm wondering if this is normal, or if I should take mine back for an exchange.
It's a 32gb Verizon version. It's a good point - some memory chips could run hotter.OP what model is your's?
On my 64GB Wifi only, I haven't noticed any heat.
If it's like the iPad 2, the memory is on the right with most of the circuitry on the left.It's a 32gb Verizon version. It's a good point - some memory chips could run hotter.
I understand the battery and performance requirements have increased, it's just not Apple-like for their products to get warm during light usage such as browsing web. iPhone doesn't get hot unless you're playing graphics-intensive games. At least I'm not alone with this.
Wifi users are getting warm iPads too, so it can't be (just) the cellular antenna. I'm actually more and more convinced that the temperature is a function of screen brightness. Seems those with brightness at 50% or under are not getting warm iPads. Anyone out there care to confirm?If it's like the iPad 2, the memory is on the right with most of the circuitry on the left.
I asked about the model, since I wondered if it could be the cellular circuitry. If it got hot while browsing through the cellular antenna, this could be it.
