Not at all. I have noticed that it is warmer when sitting for long periods (i.e. reading in iBooks, playing Hero Academy) but it is not a big deal and not even unpleasant except when the day is hot. If you look at this on a relative scale that I've just made up: 10 - 2007 MacBook Pro 17" playing World of Warcraft 9 - Hell 8 - Dave's Insanity Sauce 7 - Chili ...

The general rule is 14 days to return things, but I would just go in and let someone there know your concerns. Also, there often are price reductions which would make your recent purchase less costly if that was something you preferred to have.

Under normal circumstances only one application is in the foreground and actually running. Of course what that app is doing can have a big effect on battery life. Other applications may be multitasking, but only in very specific circumstances - it's rare. Most apps will actually be doing nothing, so the answer is conditionally, "no". When you tap the home ...

For this answer, let's define that… …the sharpness of a display is the ability to distinguish two distinct pixels. Retina displays There is no industry standard for retina display, therefore I'll follow Apple's use of the word. The term retina display is relative, as the definition follows the human eyes's perception of a display's sharpness: The ...

Due to the (good) edit of the question, the answer does not seem fit 100% anymore. No. ...which depends on what you define as a 'mobile device'. But first, the term resolution is ambiguously used which requires to answer your question in two ways. Resolution as in pixel density The iPad 3rd Generation has a pixel density of 264 pixels per inch (ppi). ...

Apple really designed the iPad as a 1-to-1 device (one device to one person) so I don't think there is an EASY way. I know they have deployment products out there that might make it so you can remove and restore profiles, but it's not on the fly and I think it's very clunky. I also did a quick Google and noticed this software that is out in beta and is ...

Charging more slowly won't make any difference, other than reducing the slight side effect of heat buildup on the iPad. But it's perfectly OK to use lower powered ports such as those on your computer instead of the main powered chargers. It's also perfectly OK to do it the other way around; you can charge your iPhone using the more powerful 20W iPad main ...

PUSH! The old way was to insert the tool at an angle and kind of push sideways and pull out at the same time, using leverage, and the tray would hang onto and come out with the tool, but with the new iPad (2012), simply insert the SIM eject tool straight into the tiny hole (straight being the way it enters with the least resistance, i.e. perpendicular to ...

As usual Gruber nails the issue to the wall here: The short answer is COMPLETE NON ISSUE. Comparing Temperatures ★ Sam Byford, writing for The Verge, “Tests Show New iPad Runs Up to 18 Percent Hotter Than iPad 2”: Dutch website Tweakers.net has taken an infrared camera to the new iPad and revealed that it runs at up to 33.6 degrees Celsius (92.5 ...

Screens by edovia supports retina resolution on the iPad from day one for the iPad and works well on iPod touch, iPad and iPhone for quite some time. Here are pictures showing the same desktop in retina and then non-retina iPad screen captures. Retina: Non-Retina: Oddly, when you zoom in to the maximum zoom level (and you will likely need to expand ...

There is an app called Air Display that will allow you to do this. It also recently got retina display support for the new iPad. Some notes: Use your iPad, iPhone or Mac as a second (or third) monitor with no messy cables or wires. Use your finger to draw directly on the screen. Try it with a Mac calculator app, painting tool, or music control surface! ...

As you discovered, DVDs often store subtitles in the VobSub format, which are images, not text. QuickTime and the iOS Video app only handle SRT/3GPP format text subtitles. Using the very handy (and free) Subler, VobSubs can be converted to SRT subtitles and packaged in an MP4/M4V. It does this using OCR, but I've found the results to be quite accurate, ...

No there is no way to access Siri history. If any of it is stored, it will be stored anonymously as chunks of different words and phrases on Apple’s servers for better voice recognition.

I practice, I can't tell any difference at all between the two models for most finger gestures on non-drawing apps. Two things make this measurement hard - we don't get to see the raw pressure points and the unsmoothed and smoothed multitouch input. The end result of touch is highly processed which could easily hide changes in the detection grid / chip that ...

The new iPad, like all iPads, have a combined audio input/output jack, like the iPhone and newer MacBooks. The Genius was correct: Griffin cable should have worked. If it didn't, either the cable or the iPad was faulty. One other possibility is that it was the software. This isn't very likely, but it's possible that the software you were using had some sort ...

Apple discloses many of these informations with their quarterly reports. You'll find many sources discussing and analysing these by having a quick search in Google, but you'll also find the original announcements on Apple's website. Have a look at http://investor.apple.com/ A listing of all press releases with quarterly reports can be found on this page: ...

In my experience, yes, there will be a delay. The thing is that when you order engraving (at least it was like this when I ordered), Apple does it in a factory somewhere in China, and ships it from there, which takes forever (it took a little more than a week if I remember correctly to ship it to New York). If you don't order the engraving, Apple can send ...

Yes, it fits. I bought the iPad 2 case and it fits my third gen iPad...$20 cheaper too :) The latest generation iPad is slightly thicker then the iPad 2. The iPad "2" is 0.34" (8.6 mm) depth The iPad "3" is 0.37" (9.4 mm) depth Otherwise they are precisely the same width/height. While I don't have the case/keyboard you mentioned, it looks like it may fit ...

Yes. With many methods of voice dictation, what happens is that your voice is recorded and digitized, and your speech is broken up into phrases which are uploaded over the Internet to a powerful computer server which translates your speech into text and then transmits the text back to your device. However, there is a long history of programs for Mac and PC ...

The short answer is no, not yet. The long answer is because the only (reliable/legal) way to get Siri on a non-iPhone 4S device is to use a package found in Cydia called Spire. This requires you to have access to a Siri proxy server or an iPhone 4S for the tokens. However, @chpwn (the developer of the package) has stated many times that it will not run on ...

This is a complete non-issue. Yes, the new iPad gets a little warm in a back corner, but it's not uncomfortable and it's nothing compared to how hot my MacBook gets. It's noticeable, nothing more. Granted, iOS devices, including iPads, can overheat, but that's based on the environment they're in and not how hot they're operating.

It's on the borderline. Various reports have been published already. While most blogs say the temperatures are normal - if not - to be expected due to the powerful graphics of the A5X, I like to take a more critical standpoint. Apple's recommendation for battery temperatures Your iPad is designed to work in conditions ranging from 32° to 95° F. That’s ...

When you first setup your iOS device, you are asked to enter an Apple ID (Apple says that you "associate" the device to your Apple ID). On the iPad you need the ID in two cases: In Settings → iCloud you enter the Apple ID you’d like to use with iCloud. In Settings → Store you enter the Apple ID you want to use for store purchases. ...

All 3rd generation iPads perform pretty much identically, because they have the same CPU, GPU and RAM (memory). Battery life varies between the Wifi and Wifi+4G models (with the 4G models getting a bit less battery life in exchange for a bit more connectivity). The 16/32/64gb figure refers only to how much data (music, videos, books, apps and associated ...

If you are looking for a lot of data, I can suggest you take a look at these financial quarter results Apple released themselves: 2012 Quarter 2, 2012 Quarter 1, 2012 2011 Quarter 4, 2011 Quarter 3, 2011 Quarter 2, 2011 Quarter 1, 2011 2010 Quarter 4, 2010 Quarter 3, 2010 Quarter 2, 2010 Quarter 1, 2010 2009 Quarter 4, 2009 Quarter 3, 2009 ...

The normal AppleCare plan does not cover accidental damage as it follows the general warranty conditions that cover normal use generally wear is only covered if it's both impeding a normal function and not something that would be expected to be consumed. AppleCare+ does cover this - you would have had to buy the AppleCare plus insurance and there would be a ...

Ok, so I finally found out my own answer. It seems there are three options: Apple Route I went into the big Apple Store here in London, and asked a member of staff what I could do about a cracked iPad. The helpful staff member told me I needed to book an appointment with a technician. "Great, let's do it", I said. "No, you have to do it online", he ...

It would definitely not be possible to connect an iPad to the MacBook without an app designed to do that on the iPad and a daemon on your MacBook, and it would have to use some tricky protocol passing data through the Lightning connector as audio (or some other way that the app could access). There is no way to connect to an iOS device by Thunderbolt that I ...

iMessage only works between apple devices. If you were using an iPhone it would be able to use SMS instead of iMessage when the other person has a non iOS device, but since you are using an iPad you can't contact them.
