    Hey guys. Hope you're are doing good. Newbie here. iPad Mini 4 user for a year almost. A few days ago bought me an iPad 9.7 2018 (6th gen) too. Noticed that it gets considerably hot in the region below where the A10 Processor is located (as depicted in the picture linked below for better understanding) like when doing tasks such as casual browsing (Safari), Twitch streaming, Youtube, etc.

    Guess "considerably" here could be a relative term. I use all of my devices with no cover/cases. Haven't felt the same issue with the iPad Mini 4 even with its thin and small body. Also, have no clue whether it's a normal phenomenon with the current gen entry-level 9.7 iPads. Played some graphics intensive games to find out this abnormality in the region being hot. As expected it pumped the temperature on the region of A10 processor. But I don't get it why there is a rise in temperature around the region of WiFi/Bluetooth module & Touchscreen controller during the usage of other apps. Does anybody have any idea of this? Any iPad users experiencing the same?

    Though I don't have a thermal image of the device to prove my point. I did reinforce my doubt with the help of people I shared the device with. I also have a few days left if in case I want to exchange the device. Again, if exchanging is the only way I don't know how will I be able to prove the issue to the guys in the store for a new device. Please help a sista in concern

    It is common for the device to get warm or warmer, depending on your usage, however, if you feel the temperature is abnormal, please make a Genius Bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store to have it inspected. Thanks.

    Yes, the original link was redacted because it showed more than the subject matter. Thank you for posting the image directly to the thread. Take care.
