Heatgate Revisited


On March 20th, I posted an article about reports that the new iPad was running considerably hotter than the iPad 2.

At the time, Consumer Reports conducted some tests that found the new iPad to be about 12 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than the iPad 2 when running an action game.
Well, Consumer Reports just came out with their latest tablet ratings, and named the new iPad the best tablet. Regarding the new iPad running hotter, they said that they “didn’t find those temperatures to be cause for concern”.
