New iPad runs hotter than the old one

apple

Up to 18 percent hotter


It appears that the new iPad is more than just faster than the iPad 2, it is also slightly warmer than its predecessor.

The Verge noticed that the device is slightly warmer, but now Tweakers.net placed both the iPad 2 and the new one under an infrared camera and revealed that the new one gets up to 33.6 degrees Celsius or 18.7 percent warmer than the iPad 2.

The hottest point was in the lower right part of the device where the processor is located. Unfortunately, Tweakers.net didn't test it with LTE.

Of course, this is only one test on one device but we guess that we'll see more reports on this topic pretty soon. You can check out the infrared shot here.
