Apple Hit with iPad Heat Lawsuit

Apple was hit with a new lawsuit on July 23 that alleges the iPad overheats too quickly and stops working in sunlight and hot weather conditions. The case was filed in Federal Court in Oakland, California, and is seeking class action status, according to Bloomberg.

The suit claims Apple’s iPad “overheats so quickly under common weather conditions,” and fails to “live up to the reasonable consumer’s expectations created by Apple.”

Apple’s iPad is a multimedia tablet device with a 9.7-inch multi-touch display. The tablet runs the same operating system as the iPhone and iPod touch, and is capable of running most of the same apps, too. It includes built-in Wi-Fi networking support, Bluetooth support, can play videos and music, includes an ebook reader app, and more.

Along with class action status, the lawsuit is asking for unspecified damages. Apple has not commented on the pending case.
