Apple has been sued in U.S. District Court in Northern California over claims that the iPad overheats and fails to operate properly in warm conditions. Bloomberg reports that the suit, filed in Oakland, CA, claims that the iPad “does not live up to the reasonable consumer’s expectations created by Apple” due to the fact that it “overheats so quickly under common weather conditions.” Notably, it claims that the iPad “turns off, sometimes after just a few minutes of use,” when used in direct sunlight. The suit seeks unspecified damages as well as class action status.
