Many reports about the new iPad claim that the iPad gets warmer than the iPad 2. Consumer Reports found their third generation iPad reached temperatures up to 116 degrees Fahrenheit after running Infinity Blade 2 for 45 minutes. The extra heat is caused by the more powerful A5X chip processing the Retina Display of the device, and the battery providing the energy the screen and the processor need. An interesting observation is the fact that the new iPad didn’t even charge while playing Infinity Blade 2. It seems the iPad is unable to provide power for running the game and charging the battery at the same time. Statements from Consumer Reports and Apple after the break.
