You’ve probably seen a warning on your iPhone recently that your device is too hot.
And you are not alone with the sizzling temperatures across the UK at the moment.
Why does my iPhone overheat so quickly?
Well, much like us humans, our devices struggle with temperature extremes – both high and low temperatures.
And the hotter they get, the harder they have to work.
The chips and other technology in your iPhone — and Android phones — generate a lot of heat of their own.
iPhones generally endure up to 35 degrees.
As Apple explains, “Low or high temperatures may cause your device to change behavior to regulate its temperature.”
“Using an iOS or iPadOS device in very hot conditions can permanently decrease battery life.”
So, when the weather gets hot and your iPhone can’t cope, it goes into a protection state where the “Cooling Down” warning pops up.
How can I prevent my iPhone from overheating?
There are a number of things you can do to prevent your iPhone from overheating.
First, keep it out of direct sunlight and in a shady place.
If you’re wearing a case, it might be a good idea to remove it to give your iPhone some breathing room.
Avoid heavy tasks like streaming videos or playing games on your iPhone outdoors – these generate enough heat without adding to the summer weather.
Also, don’t charge your iPhone while it’s still hot, whether it’s from an outlet or a power bank.
And don’t do extreme TikTok hacks like: B. Putting your iPhone in the fridge – there is a risk that your mobile phone will break.
