Apple being sued over iPad overheating

John Moe Jul 28, 2010

Meanwhile in St Paul, John Moe avoids “the iPad is hotter than ever!” joke. The iPad has received complaints about the iPad getting too hot ever since it launched. Now there are lawsuits seeking class action status against Apple for making a product that can’t be used under reasonable weather conditions. Essentially, the claim is that you can’t use it on a hot day in direct sunlight because it overheats and won’t work. PC Magazine editor Zach Honig got an error message about that but then he put the iPad in the fridge and it cooled down and was fine. But still, you shouldn’t have to stick your iPad in the fridge, right?
