Although Apple reckons the temperature issue isn't really an issue at all, TechRadar has investigated the heat complaints with the new iPad and has put together a short video showing how much hotter the new iPad gets in comparision with the iPad 2 after 30 minutes of gaming.
In our initial test (a more in-depth video on the way) we started up both the new iPad and the iPad 2 from cold, with the charger plugged in, and played Infinity Blade for 30 minutes.
After 15 minutes the iPad 2 clocked in at 29.3 degrees Celsius (85 Farenheit) and the new iPad was running 7 degrees hotter at 36.3 degrees (97 Farenheit).
After 30 minutes the 7 degree margin was still present, with the iPad 2 recording a high of 32.3 (90 Farenheit) and the new iPad running at 38.9 (102 Farenheit) - that's almost four degrees Celcius hotter than its own prescribed thermal specifications.
We will be bringing you a more in-depth video on the new iPad heat issue later today, so keep it locked to TechRadar for more.
