    As the title, I updated to ios6 now it's even more hotter than ios5.
    Do I send it for servicing?

    Thanks

    So long as it doesn't burn you you don't have to but do what you like.

    Ok but the heat will slowly degrade the components right? The thing is I did not experience this in ios5...

    Sure, but over time. I think your just experiencing a resourceful OS. Apple will optimize it (hopefully) eventually.

    Ok I just reduced the brightness and turned off auto-brightness now the heat is back to where it was during ios5.

    No one should ever need to use the iPad at full brightness when indoors. I find even 50% brightness to be insanely bright at the best of times.

    This is true. Even outdoors, I back off the brightness just a bit, maybe set it around 90% when I'm in a bright ambient environment. If I go 100%, that last little 10% seems to eat the battery very quickly. And the brightness difference between 90% and 100% is minimal. It's a cost vs performance issue for me.
