Warning for iPhone users because Battery Killer error will damage your handset

With summer in full swing, iPhone owners need to be careful about how and when they use their devices.

Hot temperatures can damage your device’s battery and significantly decrease the time it takes to drop from 100 percent to zero percent.

On its website, Apple states the temperature range in which it is safe to use your iOS and iPadOS devices.

That’s between 0 °C and 35 °C (32 °F to 95 °F), Apple says. Apart from that, you risk damaging your device.

“Low or high temperatures can cause the device to change behavior,” Apple explains.

Cold temperatures can cause a temporary decrease in battery life, meaning your iPhone will burn through a full charge faster.

High temperatures can have a lasting impact on battery life. It’s important to keep your iPhone cool on hot days.

“Using an iOS device in very hot conditions can permanently decrease battery life,” according to a support post from Apple.

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 when the mercury is rising:

  • 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

There are ways to reduce your risk, even on very warm days.

For example, 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 power-hungry 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.

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.
