PLUMMETING temperatures mean Apple fans need to keep an eye on their iPhones as the cold weather can kill your battery.
If you’ve been noticing your battery draining quicker than usual recently, it could be because winter weather is not kind to smartphones.
Frosty weather always leads to complaints from iPhone users that battery life isn’t up to scratch.
However, you shouldn’t worry too much.
It’s not uncommon for this to happen. In fact, Apple even has a special support page dedicated to explaining the problem.
“Low- or high-temperature conditions might cause the device to change its behaviour to regulate its temperature,” the iPhone maker writes.
“Using an iOS device in very cold conditions outside of its operating range might temporarily shorten battery life.”
Apple adds that very cold temperatures “could cause the device to turn off”.
The support page continues: “Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures.”
That means it’s best to keep your iPhone in your pocket when out in cold weather and only take it out when necessary.
You could also carry a portable charger if you know you’re going to be out in the cold for a while and don’t want your phone to die.
The good news is that your battery life will only be temporarily affected.
Really hot weather is a different story as battery life can be permanently shortened if an iPhone continuously over heats.
