Apple’s 3rd Generation iPad is no doubt an excellent device. But since the day it came out, users have complained about a few persistent issues with it. The most widely reported issue being the heating problem. It seems Apple has started working to rectify the problem and has planned to release a revised version of the new iPad. There’s no official confirmation of this fact, and all we know so far is through rumors.
Reports say that the revised iPad will have a thinner battery to reduce the weight of the iPad, and also to reduce its thickness. This also will help in reducing the heat generated by the device. It is also rumored that Apple may increase the number of LEDs that act as the backlight to the iPad screen from 2 to 1. This move will also help increasing battery life, and will help ease the issue of excessive heat being generated by the 3rd generation iPad. Another rumor states that Apple might want to add the Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) panel technology to its Retina Display screens, which will be manufactured by Sharp instead of Samsung.
Overall, the biggest improvements in this revised iPad are said to be battery and heat related. It’s clear that as always, there are a lot of rumors swirling ahead of a major Apple Event. If Apple is indeed working on a revised device, it will most likely be launched along with the next generation iPhone in the Apple event to be held this fall.
