No iPad is going to work well in bright sunlight unless you wear a large sun hat on your head or umbrella to shade the ipad from the sun.

In addition, the bright sunlight will heat up the iPad’s glass enough to raise the temperature of the iPad to the point that it will get hot enough to shut down.

No tablet computer works well in direct bright sunlight.

By a Kindle or Nook e-reader for reading outside in bright sunlight OR keep your iPad shaded from direct sunlight.


Good Luck to You!

I've dealt with the same problem; I used to use the Kindle app on my iPad. Unfortunately the best solution I've found is to buy a Kindle e-reader. They work perfectly in bright light: Amazon.com: Kindle E-readers: Amazon Devices & Accessories
