I recently bought a 2020 iPad Pro 12.9” for educational purposes, with a little bit of intended IF use.
On my previous device (2015 iPad Pro 12.9”), I used it solely for IF, and it ran great! However, whenever I did a flight, I used to constantly charge my device, and overtime (over a span of 3 years), the battery lifespan and quality of life drastically reduced compared to if I did not run IF.
Because I want to use my new 2020 iPad Pro mostly for education, I am hesitant to fly anymore because I don’t want to constant keep the device charging.
NOTE: I have enabled low power mode, graphics settings are all low/none, anti aliasing is off, and my device brightness is constantly at its lowest while cruising. I have taken a look at the tutorials page and the manuals from IF, and I’ve also consulted the device compatibility thread for 20.1. None of these have resulted in sufficient answers!
Should I proceed ahead and use my new device like I used to (constantly keep charging) or should I just not fly? Do you have any other tips for how to not destroy the battery?
Thanks for the input! 😁
