If your iPhone gets too hot or too cold its performance can be heavily impacted.

An iPhone battery that overheats can suffer permanent damage.

The same goes for other devices not just iPhones or Androids.

This is why it’s so important to keep electronics at a regular temperature.

Apple has some good advice for iPhone users on its website.

“Use iOS and iPadOS devices where the ambient temperature is between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F).

“Low- or high-temperature conditions might cause your device to change its behavior to regulate its temperature.

“Using an iOS or iPadOS device in very hot conditions can permanently shorten battery life,” Apple explains.

So if you’re about to be in conditions that are below 32º or above 95º Fahrenheit, you need to look after your phone accordingly.

Keep your iPhone protected in a pocket if it’s cold or keep it out of direct sunlight if it’s hot.

Apple also advises keeping your phone out of hot cars.

“Store your device where the temperature is between -20º and 45º C (-4º to 113º F).

“Don’t leave your device in your car, because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range,” Apple warns.

Apple devices like iPhones and iPads do have components that help to cool them down.

This can also be while your battery drains quickly when it’s overheating.

“iOS and iPadOS devices have built-in protections to prevent overheating.

“If the interior temperature of your device exceeds the normal operating range, your device will protect its internal components by attempting to regulate its temperature,” Apple said.

iPhone tricks to try today

Here are some of the best…

  • Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
  • Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
  • Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
  • Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen, then tap in the bar and type a currency (like €200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
  • Check if you’re due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you’re down to 80% capacity. If you’re below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
  • Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
