Apple's new iPad appears to be getting off to a rocky start with reports of lower demand followed by claims the third-gen tablet has overheating issues

 

After launching in the UK, US and a host of other countries last Friday, March 16th, new reports have suggested that Apple’s new iPad suffers from an overheating issue

Whilst a number of portable devices tend to run a little hot, a number of reports have suggested the newly launched third-generation iPad has its own unique heating issue as claims of the Apple tablet becoming excessively hot in the lower left corner of the device circle the web.

Having dramatically increased its battery size in order to counteract the juice heavy Retina display inclusion and maintain its hailed 10 hour battery life, the new iPad appears to have come in for a selection of overheating problems.

Taking to Apple discussion boards and web blogs, a number of disgruntled new iPad early adopter have hit out at their latest gadget purchase to come out of Cupertino with some suggesting their tablet has repeatedly show the warning message: "The iPad needs to cool down."

“My new iPad (verizon 64GB) definitely got significantly warm, almost too warm to hold,” commenter rawwave wrote on the official Apple discussions page. They added: “Not even doing a lot of downloads (just browsing twitter) but having the LTE radio on seemed to cause it to get noticeably hot.”

These comments were reiterated by a number of fellow new iPad owners with one ‘malegeno’ stating “The heat on mine is concentrated on the bottom-left (if you're holding it with the home button at the bottom) although the whole left side seems to be hotter than the right side.”

Apple new iPad 3 Specs

Officially unveiled on March 7th, the new iPad touched down in the UK, US and a host of other countries last Friday, March 16th, with a bevy of new features and high-end specs.

As well as the new eye catching Retina display party piece, the new iPad boasts an improved iSight 5-megapixel camera on the rear and an ARM A5X dual-core processor with quad-core graphics. Due to this selection of new innards, which includes a dramatically larger battery, the new iPad lines up marginally thicker than its predecessor, the market dominating iPad 2.
