    Can the ipad handle temps in the low 30's. I take the ipad on my motorcycle all the time and wondering if I'd be creating a problem. Had it this morning in the low 30's and everything worked perfect. Just wondering?

    From the Apple Technical Specifications page:

    Operating temperature: 0° to 35° C (32° to 95° F)
    Nonoperating temperature: -20° to 45° C (-4° to 113° F)

    A "nonoperating" (powered off) iPad can be exposed to a much lower temperature, however it would be prudent to wait for the iPad to reach operating temperature before using it.
