    I've been using my 2nd new iPad for a few hours now, and this one isn't getting warm or hot either. Hopefully it will continue this way.

    Mine gets no warmer than any of my other phones or tablets when under heavy use.

    I really wanted to buy the new ipad but I'm now reluctant after reading people's comments about the heat issues. Does it really get that warm? Does it become uncomfortable to hold?

    It comes with a warranty. Apple will replace it free if the battery fails. So buy it and don't worry about it!!

    Not at all... Don't let it deter you form purchasing one. I almost didn't get one because of the alleged heating issues.

    After the initial setup, the iPad will never get past a lukewarm feeling.

    No it does not. I have used my new iPad for hours of gaming and it stays cooler than a laptop or phone. Don't forget that the temperatures quoted in many of the articles are an iPad that is charging and running at full load with no heat sink. The mere act of you holding it will dissipate the heat. Mine never gets more than comfortably warm.

    Also don't forget a lot of people are trolling because they can't find anything else bad to say about the new iPad.

    I have had an Android tablet for 9 months and love the new iPad. Its worth every penny. Its like trading up from a used Ford Escort to a new BMW.

    I've been using my new iPad much more than I used my iPad 1, and have not experienced any heat issues ever. It's been totally worth the upgrade; I'd do it all over again!

    I noticed something last night. I have a 32G WiFi. The charging plug became warm. The iPad was in sleep mode. I got down to 20% battery, and started charging. It took a little over three hours to fully charge. I did have it plugged into a surge protector with other things charging, but the charger getting warm? It was only warm the first hour of charging, but a little concerned.
    The charger on my ipad2 got warm also, especially if I was charging for a long period of time.

    Mine is in an Incase folding leather case so I don't notice if it even does get hot, but I'm not sensing heat coming out of anywhere any more than my iPad 2 in the same case. I'm not an LTE area though. Only 3G ("4G") AT&T and wifi.

    Ok, I'm convinced. I'll get the new ipad. I didn't really need a lot of convinving because I really want it and apart from the heat issues, it seems like the best tablet.

    i had hoped the stories were overblown, but it's not just warm, but uncomfortably hot. i was just reading email and articles for about an hour, not playing my usual games (inifinity blade, etc), and i noticed it was getting a bit too warm to hold so i turned it off. the heat dissipated fairly quickly. but it was, in fact, hot enough to not want to hold it any longer.

    this one is wifi only. don't have a case yet. holding it bare metal.

    maybe there was a bad batch with real battery probs. i'll be returning this one for a replacement (sigh).

    Good choice, Lara. You will really like the new iPad and I doubt you'll have any heating issues with it. If you did, Apple will gladly exchange it for you.

    I have just bought a new ipad air2 and while setting it up it has become very hot done the right side. Hopefully this is not a problem. I haven't even used it yet just setup.
