Looks Like The iPad Can Overheat If You're Not Careful

It looks like your iPad might not like the sun, and that’s not even taking into account the display being harder to read in direct sunlight. It seems that quite a few users are reporting that their iPads are giving a warning stating “iPad needs to cool down before you can use it”. According to Apple, the operational temperature of the iPad is 32° to 95° F when on, and the nonoperational temperature is -4° to 113° F. The issue is that the user received this warning outside NYC, where hasn’t been much hotter than 70° or so. Is the iPad overly sensitive to heat, or is it having trouble dissipating the heat generated by its internal components? Either way, if you get this error, you can be sure that you’re not going to be in too good a mood.
