How to properly use iPhone in the cold and what to do if the phone turns off

iPhone owners often complain about problems that arise when using the gadget in the cold. We are talking about a significant drop in temperature when the thermometer drops below -15...-25°C.

Often, iPhones simply turn off when exposed to low temperatures, and you may be left without communication when you need to make an important call or send a message. Read OBOZREVATEL's article on how to use your iPhone in the cold and what to do if the gadget suddenly turns off.

At what temperatures may the iPhone not work

Apple's official website states that the iPhone is designed to operate at temperatures from 0 to 35 °C and to be stored at temperatures from -20 to 45 °C.

That is, if you use your iPhone at temperatures outside this range, the gadget may have problems with functionality. Applications may not load, and there is a high probability that the iPhone will simply turn off. Battery life is also significantly reduced at low temperatures.

How to use your iPhone in the cold

At low sub-zero temperatures, it's best to keep your iPhone in a more or less warm place. For example, in the inside pocket of a jacket. Experts also advise putting your iPhone in your pants pocket in winter, preferably with the screen facing your leg. This way, hypothermia can be avoided.

However, you shouldn't carry your iPhone in the outer pockets of your jacket, in bags or backpacks in very cold weather. There is a high probability that it will quickly turn off when exposed to frost.

Minimize the use of your device in the cold. Don't try to browse social media or take photos. If you really need to make a call, talk quickly, postpone long conversations until you are warm again. At the same time, hide your smartphone under your hat. It's better to take off your glove while you're talking, so your iPhone will cool down more slowly.

Instead of typing long text messages, record voice messages.

According to recent studies, Android smartphones are much less affected by cold weather than iPhones.

If your iPhone does turn off, the best thing to do is to go into a warm room, wait until the gadget warms up, and then turn it on.

Frost can affect the battery, and you will notice that it has a low charge when you turn it on. You should connect your smartphone to a charger. There is a high probability that the charge level will be at the previous value.

But be careful - do not connect a cold gadget to the charger right away. Give it time.

In a critical situation, when your iPhone has turned off, there is no warm room nearby, and you need to make an important call, try this life hack. Remove the case from your iPhone and hide it in a warm place on your body, such as under your armpits. The temperature should be high, so trying to warm your iPhone with a glove may fail.

Earlier, we told you why iPhone loses battery power quickly.
