People are just realizing iPhones work slower if you put it in the wrong place – Apple list reveals where not to use it | The Sun

AN official Apple warning reveals that your iPhone can be slowed down depending on where you put it.

So if you value good iPhone performance, don't make any silly mistakes.

In an Apple memo, iPhone owners are warned against letting their devices get too hot or cold.

If you don't follow the rules, you could find that your iPhone slows right down – or stops work entirely.

Heat can be a big problem for iPhones, and can even permanently damage your device's battery.

"iOS or iPadOS adjusts your device's performance if it's become too warm due to external conditions," Apple explained.

"Like being left in a hot car or used for an extended time in direct sunlight.

"Move your device to a cooler location and let its temperature adjust."

Your iPhone may start to perform differently if it gets too hot.

Apple notes that you may experience:

  • Slow charging, or no charging at all
  • A dimmed or black display
  • Weaker signal as the mobile radio enters a low-power state
  • Temporarily disabled camera flash
  • Performance of graphics-intensive apps or features slows

You'll face similar problems if you let your iPhone get too cold.

In fact, in extreme cold your iPhone will be forced to shut down – because the battery won't be able to function properly.

"Very cold temperatures can also slow your device," Apple explained.

"If your device runs slowly after being exposed to cold, move it to a warmer location."

Apple said that you could experience temporarily shortened battery life.

But it should return to normal when your device gets to higher temperatures.

According to Apple, you should use your iPhone when the "ambient temperature" is between 0C and 35C.
