Is Apple ALREADY Updating the New iPad?
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will make a minor update to its third-generation iPad to address apparent overheating issues connected to the tablet’s battery, according to DigiTimes. According to the Taiwanese website, the company is making revisions that will drop one of two LED backlights in a newer version of the same model that will ship around the holiday season. The website cited unnamed sources from Apple’s manufacturing supply chain in Asia, adding that a revised battery could also make the tablet “slightly lighter and thinner than previously designed.”

The same source also said that Apple was making a few tweaks to the camera lens hole on the tablet in response to a specific problem with its functionality. DigiTimes did not specify which of the two camera lens hole was getting the change. The iPad has a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) finished the week higher 4% over the 5 trading days at $605.88 per share.
