Apple devices are designed to work in the temperature range between 0°C and 35°C and using the device at temperatures lower or higher than this range can make the device change its behavior, as it tries to regulate the temperature. If the iPad is used in very cold conditions, outside the above-mentioned range, the device might turn off automatically. Once you bring the device back to the proper temperature range, the device will function normally.
This is quite normal, but when you use the device for demanding things like playing 3D games, streaming HD video for a long time, or using GPS heavily, it can get warm or even hot.
Many users have complained that their iPads become hot while on the use. If you feel that your iPad has an overheating problem, you can try the steps shared below by wholesale iPad dealers to prevent the device from overheating.
- The first thing to try is to restart or reboot the device, as it may help fix the issue of overheating. To restart the device, press and hold the Power button and to reset the device, you need to press and hold the Home button and Power button together until the Apple logo appears.
- The next thing is to perform a Power Cycle, that is, charge the battery of the device to 100% and then allow the battery to discharge completely until the device shuts down automatically. You may recharge the device again once it shuts down on its own after the battery is drained completely.
- Disable Location Services on the iPad. This can be done by selecting Settings, Privacy, and then Location Services.
- Make sure that you close all the services (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.) and apps when the device is not in use.
- Switch the device to Auto Brightness You can turn on Auto Brightness by selecting Settings, Wallpapers & Brightness, and turn on Auto-Brightness.
- The last thing is to reset the network settings. For this, you need to select Settings, General, Reset, and then Reset Network Settings.
These are the simple steps to prevent your iPad from overheating. If you find that your iPad is resorting to the thermal protection mode frequently even after doing the above things, and displays the message “iPad needs to cool down before you can use it”, then you might need to visit Apple care for advanced technical assistance.
