    Does the brightness setting affect battery drain ?

    Hello All,

    I'm new to the site and I'm just wondering (as stupid as it may sound), does a brighter setting for the ipad 4 screen drain the battery quicker? When I first got my new ipad it was set at just under 1/4 of the brightest setting. So, I guess what I'm wondering is, was that the setting Apple used to get their diagnostics on the battery?

    Yes, the brighter you have the screen setting the quicker you will deplete the battery.

    I have mine less than quarter, you really don't need it that bright. If you start to get headaches from straining your eyes or it's too bright then adjust as needed and you will find the optimum level suitable.

    Obviously, higer brightness is the main reason for quicker battery drain. Keep the brightness less than quarter.

    Different strokes for different folks. I like mine on half way and I can't stand the auto brightness feature but I know others who love it.

    The retina display is the major power hog on the iPad, period.

    Yesterday I streamed Pandora to my BT speakers all day long with the display off......battery only went down bout 15%

    Maybe so but I get a solid 10 hours usage every day on my iPad 4. I'm very impressed with the battery life on this tablet and I've had all 4 versions of the iPad but not the mini.
