On hot summer days, your iPhone or Android may report that the temperature is too high to operate and the device's capabilities are limited. This can affect the operation of apps and other programs, and they will stop functioning.

BGR wrote as follows, "Both iPhone and Android get hot when charging. Add ambient heat and you get extreme conditions for battery life."

The resource also reported that recent research in this area has shown that such moments should be avoided at all costs.

Here's what experts think about the safe temperature limit for iPhone and Android, and what they think you should do to avoid undermining the battery's health.

Avoid overheating your phone at all costs

Thus, testing iPhone 13 Pro and Galaxy S23 Ultra placed under a regular desk lamp showed that it takes about 7 minutes for the devices to issue an overheating warning. Accordingly, in our case, this happened at temperatures of 137ºF (58ºC) and 128ºF (53ºC). iPhone completely shut down, and Samsung began to close applications.

The experiment also showed that the optimal temperature for iPhone or Android is up to 35ºC. As a result, experts concluded that heat is the number one enemy of the battery. And the worst thing you can do to your phone is to use it under the scorching sun while it's charging.

This situation may seem unrealistic to some. Here's one example: driving a car in the summer heat with navigation apps while your iPhone is connected to your car.

How can you avoid overheating?

There are several options:

  • Use a slow charging mode designed for hot weather.
  • Remove the case from the device.
  • Turn on the airplane mode.

Alternatively, you can charge your phone at night when the air temperature is lower or buy a special thermal bag to cool your electronic devices in the summer.

Whatever the case, any of these methods and the costs associated with them are incomparable to the cost of buying a new phone or battery.
