A growing number of users are reporting that Apple's third-generation iPad, which launched last week, is overheating to such an extent that it cannot be held.

 
Multiple reports from consumers of the latest tablet computer show excessive temperatures like 96.8 or 117 degrees Fahrenheit after a very short period of use, such as 10 or 30 minutes.
 
Some reports show that the new iPad 3, technically known as “the new iPad,” can overheat so much that users get an error screen telling them that it must cool down before being used. While this might help prevent the risk of burns or fire, it will do little to appease angry customers.

DisplaySearch previously suggested that the new iPad had display problems, thanks to its higher-resolution “retina” display. It requires twice the number of LED lights and consumes a lot more power, which could explain the overheating issue.
 
Apple included a more powerful processor in the tablet, which required a bigger battery in order to keep battery life similar to that of the iPad 2. The company claims that the iPad 3 could be used for up to 10 hours on a single charge, but many users are not even getting a tenth of that time before the device overheats.
 
Apple has already sold three million of the new iPad, but several users have reported that they are returning the device, which could cost the company million of dollars if the problem is widespread enough.
 
Apple has so far failed to respond to the issue.
