Apple iPad (2012): Will it freeze? (with video)

ZooGue, a company known for their iPad Cases, has made a video to promote their free iPhone cases.

The froze an iPad in a block of ice to see if it would still work.

MacDailyNews Note: Apple’s iPad specs:

• Operating temperature: 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C)

  1. Over the winter a friend of mine was involved in a car accident and was hospitalized… Two weeks after he finally got access to his car and found his iPhone on the floor in a puddle of water and ice. He thought for sure he was going to need a new one… a day of drying, it worked perfectly. He couldn’t believe it.

  2. Dropping it to 0ºF isn’t all that impressive. I’d like to know if I stick it in a deep freezer and drop the temperature towards absolute zero too see at what temperature does the iPad actually stop working. -20ºF? -40ºF? -100ºF? -200ºF? –300ºF? Absolute zero -459.67ºF?

    1. Everybody knows at low enough temperature, the iPad would begin supper-conducting and the battery would last forever, but nobody would be able to beat Angry Birds.

    2. I have one of those 0 kelvin freezers on order from Sears. Once I get it installed, I’ll check it out with my iPad II, just before I begin some superconductivity experiments with helium balloons. 🙂

      Oh, what’s that? It’s not 0 kelvin, it’s a Kelvinator. Oh well…
