How to avoid overheating problem of iPhone 3GS

Couple of days ago I wrote a blog post about the overheating problem of iPhone 3GS due to its batteries, until then I didn’t experienced it personally but thanks to the London weather in last couple of days (32 degree Celsius), I noticed it well. Then dugged through Apple’s website and this is what I got.

iPhone is supposed to work under these conditions:

  • In the temperatures between 32 Fahrenheit to 95 Fahrenheit
  • Should be stored in between -4 degrees Fahrenheit and 113 degrees Fahrenheit (temperature in your car when you leave your iPhone in the dashboard, can be exceedingly more than 113F)

Symptoms of overheating

  • Temperature warning screen could appear
  • iPhone can loose or weakens the carrier signal
  • Screen can go less bright
  • Your iPhone screen can freeze

How to avoid overheating

  • Don’t leave your phone in your car on a hot day
  • Don’t listen to songs, use GPS or other use battery intensive apps for extended periods of time on a hot day
  • Avoid using your iPhone in direct sun light

These are mostly a common problem with any electronic device. Remember when you are watching a movie or playing a game on your Laptop, it heats up and its fan run faster than usual and when you are using a MS Word, it just keep on running smoothly, same is the case with iPhone, the more you use it on a hot day, it processor will emit more heat and that will degrades the performance of your phone.
