Surprise! Apple says there's no heat issue with the new iPad

Apple may be doing a few things differently recently, but one thing that hasn't changed in the Tim Cook era is how Apple responds to reports of a potentially widespread problem in one of its products. Recently, there have...

Yes, because Apple themselves said it doesn't heat up, it must be their users hand heating up...

It is a two-in-one device. You use it as a regular ipad and you can also toast some bread on it. That is an extra feature that the very customer-centric Apple has built in.

We're talking about tablet warmth not body temperature

All the trolls here are funny. Apple didn't say it doesn't run warmer. It said it runs within acceptable limits and from what we see it does. It's not uncomfortable and it's not causing issues. You fandroids want Apple to fail so bad. It must suck to constantly read about how successful Apple is and how happy their customers are.

Just like a happy lemming! lol! There's never any fault in your idol! I own multiple platforms and always laugh how defensive people get over these issues. I understand Cook's response; not trying to hurt the stock price. If you're not a stock holder, then your response is plain silly. If you are a stock holder, then more power to you. You rock!

Like it or not, the "Apple approach" to problems rarely backfires on them. Sales and Apple mania continue to increase. Not how I prefer them to communicate but it doesn't seem to be affecting their sales.

Their market share has been shrinking (in both mobile phone and tablet arena). They are expected to be surpassed by Android tablet in market share in 2-3yrs. Don't know if this is a result of the "Apple approach", but they are losing market share!

Apple response to over heating issue: " You are charging it in a wrong way".......... :)

LOL I'm not an apple fan but this heat problem is exaggerated... I read that the iPad heats up to 35C degrees. My Lumia 800 is perfectly fine and it heats up to 54C degrees when charging and playing/browsing! I have no problems with heat...
