Overexposing It to Heat
Heat and electronics don’t get along. And some particularly important components, like an iPhone’s battery, could end up with permanent damage due to overheating. But you can keep your smartphone safe with a few key tips.
- Don’t leave it in direct sunlight or in hot ambient temperatures.
- You’ll also want to avoid using CPU-intensive apps when the iPhone is already hot.
- That goes double when it’s charging. Your iPhone battery is even more sensitive when it’s charging, so try to keep it cool.
- Take off its case if you feel it overheating. Removing your iPhone’s case while charging or when it’s hot will help it dissipate heat more effectively.
