    Absolutely......I quit using my iPhone 6+ as it got so hot, it shut down. My iPad gets really hot as well.

    Yes my tablet gets hot too. DJI's app is very poorly optimized.

    Ipad 2 mini with retina display. Turned off video cache and it still gets very warm but no more video glitch or pixelation. I just flew again 10 min ago 18 minute flight full sun about 84 deg out. I have an android Galaxy s6 but have never tried it. I like the size of the iPad mini display.

    I have only had the iPhone 6 plus and or ipad mini 3 overheat when I have exposed it to direct sunlight (not using a sunshade) - whenever I have used a sunshade, I have not had an over heating issue whatsoever. I live in Florida which is at a fairly constant 95 degrees and can make things much hotter in direct sunlight.

    By the way... I have a convertible and have had my iPhone 6 plus go into high temp warning just sitting on my lap in direct sunlight.

    so to me the answer is use a sunshade whenever possible... they are pretty cheap....
