No sooner had the latest iPad come out than people began complaining that it got too hot.
Customers bitched. Consumer Reports frantically conducted tests. And pundits began worrying about another antenna-gate disaster. From all the huffing and moaning, you would have thought you could fry eggs on the thing.
But it turns out that the “new iPad gets too hot” thing was just a bunch of hot air.
PCWorld did its own tests. Here’s what it found:
- Yes, the new iPad runs modestly hotter than the old iPad, but only modestly
- The new iPad doesn’t get any hotter than other tablets, namely Android
- The new iPad doesn’t get as hot as many laptops, including Macs
So thus, we hope, ends heat-gate.
