iPad Over Heating and Shutting Down in Flight
Source: SMSPRO - Feedback
A number of reports have been made regarding iPads overheating and shutting down while in flight. Cases have been reported for ipads operating of both battery and aircraft power. No Ipad Mini reports have be filed to date.
Pilots are reminded that such devices are for "situational awarness" and are not to be used as a primary source of navigation.
Keeping the device out of the sun and in a well ventilated area will reduce the risk of this happening.
