Lightroom for iPad Pro screen brightness

When editing photos in Lightroom on my iPad Pro, the screen brightness dims every 10-20mins or so. I then have to lock my screen and leave it for a few minutes before it goes back to its original brightness. I already turned off automatic brightness, dark mode, true tone, the automatic brightness in the accessibility section as well.   

This only happens when I'm working in Lightroom and then it effects the whole screen when I exit Lightroom as well. Don't have this problem when I power off my device and put it on again and then work with other apps and don't open Lightroom.

I'm having the same issue on my iPad Pro 11", apparently it happens when the iPad is reheating which is quite annoying as I mainly use it for editing photos in Lightroom and having a screen that's is dimming all the time  slows my work as I can't continue editing without knowing exactly how the photos are going  to look.

Hi,

which iPad Pro is it exactly?
And what kind of edits are you doing when this occurs?
Are you working with RAWs or other images? 
Any info about dimensions and file types will be helpful.

Thanks,
Ignacio

I have the 12.9 2018 iPad Pro.

 

I'm a wedding photographer so I mainly edit RAW files. I import them on my iMac and sync the smart previews with my LR on my iPad and then edit on there as I love working remotely. 

My iPad has a lot of space left and I make sure all my other apps are closed when using LR. It starts off fine but once my battery goes below 60% the dimming starts and it heats up. Removed my case now to make sure the iPad gets enough ventilation but that doesn't help.

On my new iPad 11 the problem occurs when I apply a selective correction with a brush when processing RAW files. Regardless of the work time, this happens when using more than three masks. With each mask, the brush is getting more and more screen and the screen becomes darker about 30 percent. CR2 4889 * 2750 (5184 * 3456)

Any updates on this? This is a really frustrating occurrence. I love Using my IPad Pro to edit but this is making it nearly impossible to accurately get my job done.

Hi Ignacio, I have an iPad Pro 11"  I work only in Raw photos and it happens minutes after I start the editing. Is very annoying and hopefully you guys can fix this otherwise using and iPad for profesional editing is not something that you guys should recommend

I know this is exactly how I feel. I edit on my iPad hoping it will look fine just to re-edit everything on my iMac again.

I agree Majudude, I have the 12.9" 2018 iPad Pro and the same thing is happening to me. One thing I did try was to install LR mobile onto my wife's iPad Pro 12.9 2018, it didn't happen on hers which was strange. It is frustrating when people have paid lots of money for a device and have this problem. My wife works in sales and gets points for her sales so we got our iPad Pro's for free but that's not the point, it is still annoying. I am going to sell my iPad Pro and purchase a MacBook Pro when they drop in price due to the new MacBooks being released soon. Maybe iPad OS 14 will fix this problem.

Same problem here... I have a 2018 12.9 iPad Pro and it's the only device I use for editing but this issue is seriously getting in my nerves... Would love at least a clarification about why this is happening.

I have got around this problem by reducing the brightness of the screen by
50 percent which is better for when you print anyway.
