Apple stays cool over hot iPad issue

New iPad "operating well within our thermal specifications," say Cupertino tech-wizards

No, your new iPad is not burning up – at least, according to Apple. The tech giant has moved swiftly to shut down talk about overheating iPads, advising anyone who's finding their slate a little too toasty to get on the phone to AppleCare, pronto.

Apple's PRs have issued a statement to All Things D, stating that, "The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications. If customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare."

Could the overheating iPad story end up being another Antennagate, or is it just smoke without fire? We'll be watching with interest.
