If you find yourself frequently suffering from iPhone ‘cool down’ modes then you should look into where and how you are using the iPhone. These tips will help you keep the iPhone running:
- Remove the case. Sounds obvious but taking the iPhone out of a case will help it keep cool.
- Don’t leave it in a car. Temperatures can rise in parked cars quite rapidly. Take the iPhone with you when parked.
- Avoid sunlight. Unless you’re somewhere extremely hot this may be a bit extreme. But if you’re on holiday then keep the iPhone in a bag.
- Avoid playing games. Games tax the processor, which heats up the device.
- Stop using Bluetooth. Turn off bluetooth because it provides an additional source of heat.
- Turn off Location Services. GPS is one item that heats up the iPad the most. Turn it using Settings > Privacy > Off.
- Avoid using Map directions. Using the Maps turn-by-turn directions mode adds a lot of extra heat to the iPhone.
- Avoid charging. Charging heats up the device, so avoid charging if you’re in a hot area.
- Turn on AirPlane mode. You can keep the iPhone running cooler in AirPlay mode, which turns off GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and Cellular data.
- Turn it off. It’s a bit extreme but if you’re worried about overheating then keeping the iPhone switched off when not in use can help. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and slide to power off the device.
Hopefully all these tips will enable you to keep the iPhone running at an acceptable temperature.
