Got my Ipad 3 yesterday, it was literally burning up straight out of the box with minimal web surfing. Not mildy warm mind you.. but HOT. I did a discharge of the battery down to 0 and once it came back up to about 10 percent charge I did a fresh reinstall of IOS as new. (I also cut off bluetooth and a few location based services) COOL as a cucumber now. Warmth is not even noticeable. Give it a shot.. YMMV.
