A recent analysis of Apple's new iPad revealed something strange about how the device charges its battery. Apparently, the iPad's battery is not fully charged when the device says it is topped off at 100%. Now, before you stampede back to the Apple store waving the tablet over your head and demanding a refund, it turns out that Apple's new device is operating exactly as it should, and these weird charging behaviors are actually intentional.
Since the launch of the
iPad 3new iPad last Friday, some owners have begun voicing concerns over how warm Apple's new tablet device seems to run -- some saying that their device spits out a warning message and shuts down due to heat. Apple has remained mum, saying that some components in the ultra thin device do get warm during extended use, but have generally downplayed the issue. However, a new report confirms consumer's feelings: When running full tilt and plugged into a wall socket, the new iPad can reach 116ºF -- 13º warmer than its predecessor.
