Lawsuit Claims iPad Just Can’t Stand the Heat



Maybe it was the recent high temps which struck the U.S. East Coast, but a lawsuit now claims Apple’s wildly-popular iPad tablet device just can’t stand the heat. In a complaint filed July 23, lawyers claim the iPad “overheats so quickly under common weather conditions” and “does not live up to the reasonable consumer’s expectations created by Apple.”

The lawsuit also claims when placed in direct sunlight, the iPad “turns off, sometimes after just a few minutes of use.” Filed in a federal court in Oakland, California, the lawsuit seeks class-action status, as well as unspecified damages.

Apple had no official comment on the lawsuit, according to Bloomberg, which first reported the legal claim Monday. Earlier this month, the Cupertino, Calif. company said it sold 3.27 million iPads during the quarter ended June 30.
