Why the new iPad heats up more and faster than others?
The new iPad “is on fire!” And not referring to sales, but apparently literally overheats. According to BGR, a number of new iPhone owners have reported that their tablets, after a certain period of use, overheat while the system sends an error message, and later turned off. Maybe the overheating problem affects only a small percentage of these iPhone owners, but it seems to be that the new Apple computer heats up 18% from the previous iPad 2. Its frame is properly developed but it heats up more than many users expected.
This is due to several factors. Within the most exposed reasons:
- It has twice the number of LED: The more LEDs the more heat it actually generates.
- The major source of heat is the new quad-core processor that has graphics. If you look at heat maps and Tweakers Consumer Reports, the center of the heat is right where the A5X is made on the device.
- Do not forget Qualcomm chips that put schweaty LTE “faster than broadband at home” to the new 4G Cases are also guilty. And with all the above described, it is a small miracle that Apple managed to keep the temperature at 10-15 degrees just as previous versions.
Sources such as Tweakers.net made comparative studies between the iPad, by an infrared temperature reading, showing that the new iPhone was running at 92.5 degrees Fahrenheit after 5 minutes of testing, almost 10 degrees warmer than the iPad2.
In short, we cannot forget about the data exposed by experts, linked to its new quad-core processor A5X, a larger battery and a Retina Display screen technology, with four times more pixels than its predecessor can, all which may help explain the heat tends to accumulate within the aluminum frame of the device.
