    I know all of my Apple iPhones have done this (display goes to 50-65% and won't let me adjust it) cause they got hot. My iPP does it too. Is this a problem or an actual OS feature *I'm only concerned because it still lets me adjust the brightness after I see it dim a few nits. Thanks for any input. :)

    Notebookcheck have reported the same in their iPP 10.5 review. You're not alone.

    Thanks, I did google t but it only links to reviews. I’ve searched Apple.com, Macrumors, google and from the looks of it as iPads had the issue, I just wan to make sure I’m not crazy. lol

    I’m actually surprised no one else here has seen this. I was expecting a #DimGate since so much stuff is discussed here.

    I experience this problem too from time to time but I consider it a minor issue because my iPad Pro has much bigger problems than just that lol

    See that makes me wonder if it’s an issue or safeguard for the iPad. :? Hmm.

    I’ve not had this issue on my iPad Pro, although I did experience what you described on my iPhone X when I was running an iOS 12 beta. Restoring/setting up as new fixed it for me. Restoring from a backup reintroduced the issue. YMMV on the iPad.

    Thanks, I contacted Apple and it is normal, they even provided the portion of their support site that says it does this.

    What kind of ambient temperatures are you using your iPad in? Just curious. I have not experienced any temperature related brightness issues at all. But it is still pretty cold here too though.

    It only happened once with my 12.9" and it was maybe 70-ish but the iPad gets warm as my room is nothing but furniture. My 9.7 iPP did the same thing the other night, so I am not worried. Thanks. :)

    I had a 3rd gen iPad and was BBq’ing while slightly intoxicated - iPad ended upon top of the BBQ for I dunno 30 minutes? It was blistering hot, tried to power it up and got a message about maximum operating temperature exceeded.

    Took it inside, let it cool down and it fired up ok.

    My 2018 9.7” iPad doesn’t get wat. At all when using it, and 2018 IPP 12.9 gets warming when playing Civilization 6 for a few hours but cools down rapidly at ambient temperatures.
