To protect your tech from the heat, cellphone experts have offered one top tip: remove your phone case.

Taking your phone out of its case can be one of the best ways to keep your device cool, even when it’s only out for a few minutes.

“In winter, a cover is great – but it’s best to take it off on hot summer days,” say the experts at Custom software development company.

“It acts as insulation, so if your phone gets warm, the case will keep the heat inside.

“To protect your phone, it’s important to take it off so that heat can dissipate quickly.”

While it’s not always practical to remove the case, you can even forgo it during the summer months and opt for a thinner screen protector instead.

cell phone expert Catherine Hiley Uswitch.com said: “Removing your phone’s case can help prevent overheating, as any fitted cover will retain heat

“Just be careful not to drop it while you’re out in the sun!”

While it’s easy to forget about your beloved phone on a day at the beach or park, these can be the best times for your tech to overheat.

Catherine said that keeping your phone out of direct sunlight or hot rooms can save your device from permanent damage.

“Leaving your phone in a hot car or in direct sunlight can cause the temperature to rise above safe levels, with Apple warning that iPhones work best below 35C.

“When you’re outside, try to keep your phone out of direct sunlight and never leave it in a hot vehicle.”

The phone expert also warned against trying a popular trick that can end up doing far more damage than you might expect.

“While it’s tempting to quickly cool a hot handset in the freezer – don’t do it – it could end up making the problem worse.

“The dramatic temperature change can cause condensation to form inside your device, potentially ruining the hardware.

“Instead, leave it on a cool surface with good airflow.”
