Apple has just been sued by a group claiming that the iPad overheats and can’t handle high temperatures. They’re seeking seeks unspecified damages and class action status, claiming the iPad “does not live up to the reasonable consumer’s expectations created by Apple” because it “overheats so quickly under common weather conditions.” According to the complaint, in direct sunlight, it “turns off, sometimes after just a few minutes of use.”
All electronics have a temperature range that they’re able to happily operate in, and if they exceed that, they have to shut down for a little while to cool down. The question is if the iPad’s temperature limits are too low, to the point where it infringes on everyday use. It’s been a markedly hot summer for many so far, are any of our readers having trouble with their iPad in the heat?
