Apple sued for Overheating iPads: eBook Reader Outrage

It has been reported that three people are jointly filing a lawsuit against Apple, over claims that the company lied to them about promises made about the iPad’s eBook reading capabilities.

According to this report from CNN, the iPad shuts off after a certain amount of hours, when exposed in direct sunlight. The users have said that Apple hasn’t met it’s promises when they said that reading on the iPad is ‘just like a book’.

Apple’s iPad shutdown also occurs on the iPod Touch and iPhone devices, giving users the message that the device is operating at a high temperature level and should be left alone to cool down for a while.

If Apple hadn’t have said that reading on the iPad is the same as on a real book, then we wouldn’t have an issue here. Instead, there appears to be further trouble on the way for Apple.

Do you read eBooks regularly on your iPad? If so, let us know your thoughts on this – especially if you have received the overheating message.
