According to Apple, a range of 0°C to 35°C is the best temperature for iPhones, with the devices changing ‘behaviour’ to regulate themselves when the parameters are pushed too far. Smartphones aren’t designed to whit stand particularly high temperatures, making our technological buddies even more relatable as we endure scorching heat waves. Apple also warns that very hot temperatures may permanently shorten battery life.
Apple’s website explains how using an iOS device in very cold conditions outside its operating range might temporarily shorten battery life. Possibly even turning the device off, the battery life will supposedly return to normal when the device is brought to higher ambient temperature. In the heat however, battery life may be permanently shortened. To avoid this, one can, obviously, avoid leaving phones in direct sunlight. Unfortunately, going for a swim just won’t cut it for the device.
