How to Fix iPad That's Getting Too Hot
One thing to never, ever do if your iPad is getting too hot is to put it in a freezer or in front of an air conditioning unit. The rapid cooling can cause condensation to form and damage the internal mechanisms of your device.
Get it somewhere cool. Take the iPad out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. Again, you shouldn't need anything drastic, but give it an opportunity to cool down.
Stop using apps. Close down any apps that are running, especially games that have a lot of 3D graphics or apps using augmented reality. These apps tend to use more processing power, raising the internal temperature of your iPad.
Don't use iPad while charging. Charging your iPad can raise the temperature a good amount, especially if it's in use while charging.
Turn it off. This will cool it down very quickly, and a good restart could be what your iPad needs.
