Apple revises the iPad, aims to prevent overheating issues
The new iPad (left) gets hotter than the iPad 2 (right) during use

They said nothing was wrong with it, now they're trying to fix it. Just like the whole iPhone 4 antennae debacle.

If a patient shows all of the symptom of dengue fever yet the patient claims its not dengue fever .
So as a doctor , do you think it's dengue fever ?

Shouldn't this thing shutdown when it gets too hot? Kinda a big mistake on Apple's part. And if it's going to take them that long to fix the issue why don't they just release the iPad 4?

lol, I was kinda expecting Apple to do that. "The revolutionary iPad 4! Now 100 times cooler than the New iPad due to a special cooling system! No nothing else has changed."

A significant fault that doesn't exist now is being fixed,the world of apple is full of paradoxes!

Can you say "underclocking?" Saw this a mile away, only a 4 core gpu pushing that many pixels, what were they thinking? In comparison, the Asus Transformer Prime has a 12 core gpu, and doesn't suffer heat problems.

I never understood that... Why did Apple push the quad-core GPU so much, when there are GPUs in other devices with 8+ cores?

It was a marketing ploy that tons of people bought into. Apple didn't say it was a quad core gpu, just made the claim the tablet was a quad core tablet. The reality is it's a dual core tablet with a quad core gpu. By calling it a quad core tablet, they appeared to be on par with the Transformer tablets. The reality was far different though.

I'm pretty sure they said quad core graphics multiple times in the new ipad release, and not just quad core

It's simple phisics man... if you put in a tablet an SGX 543-MP4 (4 units GPU) even with 32nm litography, you will have:
- High power draw (see iPad battery that is a record for a tablet)
- High temperatures
Apple done it wrong, but it was the only GPU that can work good even at its extreme resolution.
