Hey so i just wanted to enquire if its something that only i face or its there in general, but my device usually heats up like crazy when using IF…is that normal? I use the 2018 iPad…
It’s completely normal for a device to heat up under load, it happens all the time.
If you’re running at the maximum graphics settings, your device has to work harder to display the image.
A rule of thumb is that lowering the graphics and lowering your brightness can massively reduce the heat output. I can leave my tablet on overnight and it’s cool to the touch doing this 🙂
oh damn it really did make a big difference…i put all the settings on low…it did make a huge difference
@Kirito_77 one more thing…i might sound stupid but does this help reduce the battery consumption?
You mean battery? It does! It reduces stress/load on your device meaning that it doesn’t have to work so hard so it reduces the battery usage. The reduced brightness also helps
It will reduce charge consumption.
Another thing you can do, is under general settings, there is an option to “enable low power mode”. What this does is after approximately 2 minutes of you not touching the screen, with autopilot on, it drops the frame rate to 10fps which can really help reduce heat and battery usage.
oh alright thank you
oh alright…i’ll turn it on thank you…
No worries, was there anything else you needed help with?
nope…the device is running smooth now…:)
Perfect, glad to hear it 🙂
