Apple Responds To New iPad Battery Kvetching

This is patently ludicrous. As part of the general, low-level kvetching about the new iPad's battery is the complaint that it continues to charge after it hits 100% — which apparently makes people think that Apple is lying about how charged it is. Nevermind that experts in the field say that this is common to most modern consumer devices, Apple's now had to weigh in to defend themselves. Talking to AllThingsD Apple VP Michael Tchao told them that once the new iPad fully charges, it will discharge a little, then top back up, and repeat this cycle, the entire time keeping a reading of 100%. Said Tchao: “That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like. It’s a great feature that’s always been in … [Read more...]

New iPad Uses Retina Display For iPhone Games, Too

Screen Shot 2012-03-21 at 9.23.18 AM

When the iPhone 4 debuted with the original Retina Display, iPhone apps immediately started being released with better assets to take advantage of the new screen. However, the iPad couldn't take advantage of these assets without a jailbreak tweak, meaning that even though better quality versions were available, users were still stuck upscaling from low quality files. With the new iPad, and its own Retina Display, that's all changed. … [Read more...]

What’s Causing The New iPad’s Heat?

iPad heat

So the big non-scandal of the new iPad is that it gets a bit warm. Apple doesn't think it an issue, but some questions still remain. For example, precisely how hot does it get? Well, answers vary. These guys say 92.5°F (+3° on the iPad 2), this says 90.5°, CNET got as high as 94° (+5° from iPad 2), but by far the highest measurement was by ConsumerReports, who clocked it at 116° (+12°). None of these are especially hot, and are doubtless not going to effect you much in day to day life. But what's causing it? … [Read more...]
