When Apple released the new iPad, some people said they were experiencing issues with the iPad overheating. I personally haven’t had any issues with this, but seeing the LEDs that were put in to power the Retina Display, it’s not that hard to imagine the iPad overheating. Apple is rumored to be fixing it though.
According to DigiTimes, Apple is making revisions to the current iPad model in order to remedy the heat issue that some people have been experiencing. The supposed fix that is said to be taking place is an LED is going to be taken out in order to decrease the heat. DigiTimes had more on the story:
“Apple is making revisions to the New iPad’s backlight module by using a one LED structure as used in Apple’s second-generation iPad instead of a two LED one that the current version has, according to industry sources. The extra LED is reportedly adding to overheating and that using one LED will help solve overheating issues since more backlights along with more power to heat those backlights is causing overheating.”
It should go without saying now that anything out of DigiTimes should be taken with a Costco size of Mortons Salt. I’m not sure how likely this rumor is. If Apple did take LEDs out of current iPad, it would have to do two things. One, it would have to admit to the issue of the overheating. Two, the LEDs would have to be taken out for free. People definitely aren’t going to pay to have an issue fixed that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.
