    I have been using my iPad Air 2 to record my kids soccer games and it has been fine. Works well in daylight, mediocre under the lights. So I picked up a 10.5 Pro and the results are less than stellar. Take a look at this 5 second video. I do not see anything like this on the Air or my iphone, just this new fancy 10.5!

    But, from the picture I can make a couple of assumptions. Pointing any camera at a large light source in the dark is a definite no-no in photography/videography. Try getting higher up and pointing down on the field so that the light is not shining directly into the sensor.

    I professionally live stream events ( typically at night ) as part of my job to over 150 countries.

    Any cameras you point directly at light source it will look crappy no matter what. It's not the equipment fault more like operator.

    If you can't change your seating location, try tapping and holding down on a particular area of the iPad display that you want to focus on. The AE/AF Lock will be triggered and that might adjust the lighting focus to what you want.
    Here is a tutorial that i found. The tutorial talks about photos the AE/AF Lock also works with video on the iPad.
