    Hey guys, like the title says, it seems like my iPad Pro can’t maintain 100% brightness for more than 15-20 mins, even when just doing things like browsing the internet or watching YouTube vids. It is constantly dimming the display. I just have the Apple Smart Cover for a case. Is this normal?

    Browsing the Internet should not cause your iPad to overheat and dim.

    Must be something else happening.

    Are you sure it’s dimming the screen because it’s overheating? Did you try turning off the auto-brightness and seeing if it will dim?

    iPad will get warm at 100% brightness (like any screen) so maybe it’s not actually dimming because of that but just adjusting to the surroundings with auto-brightness.

    Doesn’t sound normal to me.

    I noticed you're in California. You're not using it when it's like 90+ degree weather, right? I know one time when we used the iPad (I think iPad 3?) as in-car GPS in super hot weather, it actually shut down completely to prevent damage to the device.
