Uswitch Shared guidance with mobile phone users to prevent their devices from overheating in the current heat wave.
The company urged users to keep their phone out of direct sunlight and cover it in the shade.
“Leaving one of your devices in a car is another surefire way to seriously overheat it,” Uswitch warns.
“So be sure to take her with you when you’re parked.”
Apple’s operational message reads: “To resume using your device as soon as possible, turn it off, move it to a cooler area (out of direct sunlight), and allow it to cool.”
Tips to prevent your phone from overheating
According to USwitch, putting your phone in a low battery or even airplane mode could help protect the device from overheating.
It might also help to remove the case for the day, but you should never put it in the fridge to cool down because of the risk of condensation.
The warning comes as Britons are set to melt on Britain’s hottest day ever, as temperatures are expected to hit 40C amid mounting travel chaos.
The mercury will sizzle at possible highs of 41C in remote areas on Tuesday, making the country hotter than Jamaica, the Maldives and Barbados – with rail users warned of delays, cancellations and changes in train services.
