Thermal imaging of the third-generation iPad and the iPad 2 demonstrates that the recently released iPad running 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than its predecessor.
Dutch site Tweakers.net performed the GLBenchmark test on the two generations of iPads for five minutes to measure a heat difference. Using an infrared camera, the publication discovered that the hottest part of the new iPad was 33.6 degrees Celsius (92.5 Fahrenheit), while the iPad 2 measured 28.3 degrees Celsius (83 Fahrenheit).
Vietnamese website Tinh.te claimed on Tuesday to have received an LTE-capable version of Apple's new iPad. And soon there appeared a series of photos made by the third-generation iPad.

Apple is rumored to be interested in new ways of interacting with devices. The company is known to exploring hand gestures to navigate and control a video recording system without touching anything.

In the application they mentioned hand gestures that can be performed without touching the device, allowing to remotely control and editing video recordings on a mobile device. Moreover, a user can perform such gestures in either two or three dimensions. Such gestures could be registered through infrared sensors, optical sensors, or other methods
"As with the touch based gestures applied on or near the touch sensitive input device, the hand gestures can be interpreted to provide instructions for real time processing of the video by the video capture device," the filing reads.
