Does the rear of the iPad act as a heatsink?
I've noticed that my iPad Pro 12.9 is noticeably more cool/cold to the touch than most of my other devices. More recently it put me into thought mode, where I'm now wondering if the large surface area of the back casing acts as a heatsink in any meaningful way?
I notice in this image that the batteries appear to touch.
Similarly, it looks like the chipset does, too?
I'm assuming it would also add to the longevity of the device, or at least the batteries.
