    At first, increasing the brightness to the max on my iPad Air 1 (the original iPad Air which was released in 2013) didn't drain my battery, but then, after some time, whenever I set the brightness to the max, my iPad loses 1% of its charge every 1 to 2 minutes! When I decrease it to the middle, it doesn't lose charge that fast and takes about 4 to 5 minutes to lose 1%. Why is this happening?

    Probably because of two reasons, your iPad battery is two years old and has gotten weaker over that time period, and with the screen brightness to the max level it takes more energy than having it at 50% level.

    I keep my screen brightness at around 20% inside. In the sun I up it to about 75%. I can't imagine it at Max inside.

    I think it would give your face a tan.
