So every day I love doing long hauls before-after school and lately, my iPad has kinda been getting hot and I am getting concerned that my battery might explode, I have an iPad Mini 2020. Will I be okay?
To be safe I always turn all graphics to the minimum, turn brightness and volume all the way down, have my fan on medium, and have my Ipad on a nice cozy and comfortable pillow with a thin blanket on top of it.
If it’s in a protection case, you could take it out to give it a better chance of staying cool. Turn down your graphics settings when it’s becoming too hot. Maybe put it on a little stand or something when autopilot is om so the back of your ipad gets some airflow as well.
It’s impossible for your ipad to explode but it might temporarily turn down the brightness to avoid overheating.
And no it won’t just explode randomly one day, well at least not without showing some signs first (like the screen getting pushed off the main body of the device), so I wouldn’t worry about a random explosion, it’s unlikely to happen, but definitely good on you for trying to keep your device safe!
As a side note, if your iPad became too warm it’d put itself in a sort of time out and display a temperature warning until it goes back down to more reasonable levels.
Okay thanks so much! I am about to pushback now, but I have my fan on medium which makes the room pretty cold, all the graphics are on low, I also have low power mode on, and a thin blanket over my iPad, is that good enough?
I got home a little while ago and come to see that my iPad is not even hot at all and is in very good condition, I am so happy rn, thank you so much for the tips everyone! @moderators, please close this and have a great rest of your day everybody!
