My game flew from Edmonton to Tokyo half way there phone overheated and shut off, what can I do to prevent it
Hi! You may be over stressing your device. The best way to limit this on long flight is pointing your camera upwards in the cockpit so the scenery below doesn’t load in full quality. You also should remove your device case as that can be a large source of stored heat and causing your device to overheat. Brightness lowering and lowering your graphic quality can also assist in this case tremendously. Hope this helps.
What device do you use? The issue may be unavoidable depending on your device.
Hey there! To further expand on @infiniteflight_17 advice take a look at this topic for the recommended setting that could help prevent the severe heating of your device!
Set all your graphics to low (Settings - Graphics)
Enable low power mode (Settings - General)
Set number of planes loaded to none (Settings - Live)
And turn your brightness down
Also pointing the camera up in the cockpit
Hope this helps!
If you have a small fan, or some source of cold air recommended phone in a lot of it that’s what I do as then It gives my Ipad time to warm on approach takeoff etc then the flight it’s nice and cool!
I heard low power mode works wonders.
Lol. I used to have an old pc heat sink that I would put under it and an old pc case fan that I would point at the heat sink. It was definitely an awful solution, but hey, it got the job done
Also, I’d put this in #support
It depends on what graphic settings you’re on phone you’re using. I have an iPad Air 4 and it does tend to heat up a little.
Try Ipad Pro Jesus that’s a meteorite right there
First put this in #support
Second: what device do you have and what are you graphic settings?
Thank you, helped me out alot!
Have you tried the freeze aha! Sounds stupid I know but in freeze for all of 30 seconds or less could cool it down massively
Samsung galaxy 7
Ahahahah I was thinking that but for overnight flights I need to figure some out
Ice cold water? Frozen bag of ice bare in mind itll take 45 mins a time to maintain coolness and iceiness
As a 2020 iPad pro user, even the iPad Pro can overheat on flights. Although I usually put mine on charge when I fly
