Customer Question
My IPad 4 battery...

My IPad 4 battery is not active as long as it was

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPad?

Gee I have to look that up, but where will I find it

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPad? What have you tried so far?

It is a gradual slowing down of use, I just find I am plugging it in more often

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

The heat of the device if I am using game apps

Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. I'll be the one to assist you with your question regarding your issue

Everything you have said points directly to an old malfunctioning battery especially with heat generation

I recommend you take to the apple store or local authorised repair center and get the battery replaced.

This way you dont have to throw it away but just refresh its power module and it will be good for another few more years again

Thanks Mike

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
