You might have heard of the recent Consumer Report claiming that the iPad 3 has been found to heat up to as much as 116 degrees Fahrenheit while running games. When questioned about their new Heat Plate 3, Apple responded:
The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.
We know that you are shocked and impressed at Apple’s ability to dodge criticism while simultaneously sandwiching their rebuttal in a commercial for their product. If you have a problem with their sarcasm you can contact AppleCare.
We here at StackSocial don’t really understand the concern with the heat. Haven’t you ever accidently grabbed the handle of a cast iron skillet or placed your flat, open hand onto a steaming clothing iron? How much does gaming mean to you? What are you willing to sacrifice to play Angry Birds with a stunning Retina display?
These are the kinds of questions that iPad 3 users should be asking themselves. Isn’t it a plus that these new devices can both melt crayons and stay on for 10 hours?
Just something to think about.
