Why You Shouldn't Leave Your iPad in the Sun

Updated on June 9, 2015

iPad Overheating In Sun

iPad Will Overheat In the Car On a Hot Day

Leaving your iPad in the sun or in the car for a long period of time is not a good idea. I learned this the hard way after I left my ipad in my car for 5 hours on a 90 degree day. Although it was within the ipad cover that was inside of my backpack, the iPad still overheated and it took about 40 minutes for me to feel safe using it without getting the temperature warning. Once I was able to turn it on, everything seemed to be working fine except for the fact that my battery seemed like it drained faster than usual. Since that time, I have charged it a few times and now it seems to be holding its charge normally.

I've heard similar stories related to iPads overheating so I recommend that you be aware of its temperature threshold. Leaving your iPad in the car on a hot summer day will surely cause this error and it could even cause permanent damage to the hardware or screen if its for a prolonged period of time. Perhaps that should be expected though because leaving a laptop in a hot car could also cause damage due to overheating in extreme temperatures.

If anyone has any ideas about what could help prevent this problem in terms of some type of insulation case, feel free to share your ideas in the comments area.

      I'm glad that I always keep my electronics in a cool climate. Most of them get overheated enough on their own without us leaving them in direct sunlight or in a hot care in the middle of summer.
