Before, I start I think this belongs in #general, but feel free to change it.
Last week, I purchases a 2020 iPad 8th Generation, and here is my question to you: How do I keep this new iPad running IF at its peak performance? Is it bad to be running it on high settings all the time or does that damage its future performance?
As I said, I purchased this last week and plan to use it almost solely for IF. Thanks for reading!
Here’s what I do:
• Keep all settings at high until cruise
• once in cruise, I point the camera view to overhead panel, reduce all settings to low and turn on frame rate limiter
• I also set the screen brightness to lowest.
• once, I’m about to reach the TOD, I once again set all graphics to High and turn off frame rate limit.
• and the normal screen brightness
I recommend set all graphics to low and enable automatic low power if you are flying long haul. For short haul it doesn’t matter as much.
I recently got a new device (iphone11) as well and this is what I do.
I play in the best conditions for takeoff/landing. All conditions are lowered to the lowest during cruising
Thanks for the helpful tips, I’ll keep them in mind. On long hauls, how does the overhead panel affect pixel burn, if at all?
No problem 😉. Make sure to turn low power mode in Infinite flight settings as well.
No problem and happy flying!
Just wondering does anyone have any information on pixel burn on these devices during long hauls?
i have a quick question for IOS Expert. when i set the brightness to the lowest. they always automatically increase the brightness. any idea?
I have encountered this as well. You can disable this in the device’s settings.
Do the following:
Settings —> General —> Accessibility —> Auto-Brightness —> Toggle Off
Thank you Sasha. Great tips.
If your screen is IPS, usually it doesnt matter, if your screen is amoled, change the camera view to the scenic view to avoid burn in’s
i can’t find it
nvm, siri helped me out😃.
