Since the release of the Apple iPad there have been reports of two problems with the tablet, one problem is that the WiFi signal is said to be pretty weak, and the other problem is said to be an overheating issue.
We have heard reports that the iPad can become so hot that it locks up and displays a temperature waring, this warning apparently reads “iPad needs to cool down before you can use it”, this has prompted some affected iPad owners to dub the device the ‘iBurn’.
According to Apple’s technical documentation the iPad should operate in temperatures from 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C), therefore we are guessing that some user’s iPads are exceeding this temperature.
Chances are the overheating component will be the CPU, if it is the 1GHz chip overheating I will be pretty surprised especially as there are quite a few smartphones on the market today which feature 1GHz chips despite having a much smaller form factor.
As we hear of more detailed information we will keep you posted, lets just hope that Apple don’t rectify this problem by under-clocking the relatively slow chip!
