Brits are baking in a brutal 33C heatwave this week – and face another eight days of scorching temperatures.

The Met Office has issued a yellow “Danger to Life” warning for Sunday, with “exceptionally high” temperatures likely.

But that’s not the only warning as iPhone owners need to take extra care of their gadgets.

Make sure your iPhone is cool and out of direct sunlight — and watch out for a dangerous warning.

If your iPhone gets too warm, it could trigger a worrying pop-up that shuts down your phone.

Even Apple has warned that overheating your iPhone could “permanently decrease” battery life.

Extreme temperatures can cause major problems with your smartphone – and Apple’s expensive iPhones are no exception.

“Low or high temperature conditions may cause the device to change behavior,” Apple explains.

Cold temperatures can temporarily reduce battery life.

But high temperatures can mess up your battery life forever.

“With a iOS device in very hot conditions can permanently decrease battery life,” Apple said in a support post.

On hot days, an iPhone can very easily exceed its normal operating temperature.

Apple has some specific warnings about things you definitely shouldn’t be doing with your iPhone today:

  • Leave the device in the car on a hot day
  • Expose the device to direct sunlight for a long period of time
  • Use of certain functions in heat or direct sunlight for a long period of time, e.g. B. GPS tracking or navigating in a car, playing a graphics-intensive game, or using augmented reality apps

Even on very warm days there are ways to reduce your risk – with these three tips:

  • Don’t keep your iPhone in tight places like under the covers or in your pocket.
  • If you feel your phone is getting warm, stop using it — or even turn it off.
  • Avoid using powerful apps for long periods of time. This is especially important for gamers, as gaming apps can cause a phone’s processor to heat up very quickly.

If your phone gets too hot, it might even turn itself off automatically, leaving you without a handset.

Before the automatic shutdown, you will see a temperature warning.

It says “Temperature. iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it.”

Phones also heat up faster when using mobile data rather than over a Wi-Fi connection.

And when you’re on a call, the phone’s temperature also rises – mostly because your blower is in your warm hands.

We’ve all experienced battery life issues, so it’s worth doing your best to avoid high phone temperatures or you risk dying your iPhone charge forever.
