If a app quits on you while using it is it normally the app or the iPad at fault?

    I just want to make sure my iPad is not overheating or something.

    It could be both or either, though the onus is usually on the app developer to optimise his app to work properly on the device.

    What sort of app? Outside of iTunes I rarely see an app stop working. Even iTunes problems are rare for me.

    You might try to restart your iPad. If this happens a lot visit the Apple Store and have them check it. Several years ago I had an app stuck in memory on my iPhone. The genius was able to clear it.

    I thought you were going to say Chrome.

    Well was your iPad very warm/hot when it crashed?

    Time will probably provide an answer for your question. If it was a one time thing. No worries, just a random glitch. If it occurs repeatedly with the same app, it's the app. If you experience frequently crashes in a variety of apps, it's the iPad.

    It's usually the app that is causing this. I have an iPad 4 with last iOS and it happened with me more times I can count. And when I investigate further, I found complaints about the app, rarely it's the iPad that crashes all of a sudden.

    iPad Pro right?
    It's a flaw. Many have this issue, Apple continue to deny it

    Generally speaking it's way more often the app that is having an issue. If you realize that the device is super hot or something though then it can be something else causing an issue, especially if what you have open in task manager is just a single app like messenger, which normally wouldn't cause so much heat.
