Will a screen protector reduce sun glare outdoors as I want to use mine as a communication aid?

I played scrabble in garden yesterday, I managed but had to have brightness on full so batteries went down faster and also after a while it stopped cos it said it was getting too hot and switched off, which wouldn't be good in middle of a sentence if I was using it to talk to someone.

Any idea's how I can get around these issues?

Thanks

Kati

Hello Kati and welcome to the forum.

I'm using the Power Support Anto Glare on my iPhone for many years now and it works great outdoors when it comes to reducing the glare of the screen from the sun. Now I'm using it on my iPad too. It also prevents the screen from smudges and scratches. I highly recommend this product.

Just google Power Support Anto Glare and you will see the link to their website.

Goodluck.

Hi Kati and welcome to the forum. I use my iPad a lot outdoors, it's a bit tricky to fend off the glare. If you can get under some shade and angle your pad that should help. Some folks, including me, had the heat problems with the initial release of iPads. I'm on third replacement and so far no problems with heat. I'm not hearing of this problem as much anymore. Keep an eye on this issue and don't hesitate to take the issue to Apple if it persists.

Oh crikey! I really don't want to have to keep replacing it as it has just taken me 5 days to set up the text to speech app with all my vocabulary!

If they replaced it, I'd have to start again. It hasn't been overheating indoors even though I have been on it most of each day since I got it. the sun was very hot though, unusual for Yorkshire!

Yvrgal - I found the apple uk online store has the iPod touch version of that screen protector so I emailed them to see if they will be getting any iPad versions in.

Thanks guys

Kati

sent from my iPad. :ipad-keyboard:
P.s how do I copy that little icon to add it to my email? Anyone know?

In my experiance, the iPad is all but unusable outdoors during daylight, and I've had to resign myself to that circumstance.
