    Apple’s latest iPad can hit temperatures as high as 116 degrees Fahrenheit while playing action games, Consumer Reports said on Tuesday — far hotter than earlier versions of the industry leading tablet.

    Using a thermal imaging camera, engineers with the consumer watchdog group recorded the soaring temperatures as on both the front and rear of the new iPad while playing the graphics intensive game Infinity Blade II. These temperatures were much warmer than the iPad 2, said Donna L. Tapellini, an analyst with Consumer Reports.
