The new iPad's temperature can hit 116 degrees during use, a leading consumer advocacy group reported.
Consumer Reports wrote that the new iPad can reach 116 degrees while running games. The group used a thermal imaging camera on several tests and recorded the temperature on both the front and back of the new iPad while it ran Infinity Blade II. The temperature reached its highest, 116 degrees, when it was plugged in. When it was unplugged the temperature was 113 degrees. (The room temperature was 72 degrees.) But the hottest areas were concentrated on a corner on the back of the new iPad.
