Apple might have heard its share of complaints from users with regards to issues on its just released new iPad (I still don't get why they didn't just name it the iPad 3): first, because it was literally too hot to handle, and second, because it had a fibbing battery charge indicator.

In typical Apple fashion, the company waved off the first of the complaints, stating that the new iPad's operating temperature was well within their thermal specifications. They kept mum on the second assertion though, maybe because they didn't think it was that important and probably because someone else looked into it (see this article) and presented his findings to the concerned iPad users.

Apple is staying true to its usual protocol and is also shutting up when it comes to news or updates about its much-awaited iPhone 5. No official launch dates or word of when Tim Cook will be unveiling it to the world have been revealed, although we do have a lot of leaks and rumors to talk about.

The very first we'll take up was propagated by the South Korea-based Maeil Business Newspaper, which stated that the next-generation iPhone will have a larger 4.6-inch "retina" display. If this rumor holds true, then we could be seeing an iPhone with a screen that's similar to the current one on the new iPad.

The South Korean news agency also went on to say that we might probably see the new iPhone launch within the second quarter of this year, which is fast approaching.

Apple's major display suppliers LG Display and Samsung Electronics Co. were contacted, although they obviously declined to comment. Let the countdown for the new iPhone begin!
