    I downloaded and play Simcity Buildit on my iPad Air 2, within minutes one side towards the edge gets very hot and battery starts dropping fast. I wouldn't think the game would be to much for the Air 2, is this normal?

    Not normal, did you have a bunch of other apps open?

    Nope, just that game. Videos, web browsing, etc have no issues but that game is what does it.

    There also used to be a page on the Apple Support site that would show me all my products and if they were still under warranty, etc. showed all on one page, did they remove that? I can't locate that.

    Used to see all my products on one page once logged in, now only choice I see is to look at one item by serial??

    My one gets relatively hot sometimes when I have a more demanding game open (SimCity included) - I wouldn't worry about it unless it's uncomfortably hot - then by all means get it checked out. But generally iPhones and iPads can get warmer when stressed.

    Thank you, I just wouldn't think the Air 2 processor would have such an issue with a game made for the iPad

    I'm not sure if it's an issue, as it's normal that they heat up when things get more intense, especially with an aluminium body. Unless it's intolerable, then your iPad probably has no problem. :)
