No matter if you’re out dining on the patio, exercising outside, or splashing in the water the last thing you want to be thinking about is your phone overheating. Here’s a few tips for helping your phone keep its cool.

  • Avoid leaving your device in direct sunlight. Shade is your phone’s friend!
  • Don’t leave your phone in a hot car or in a hot place. Sometimes even your pocket is too warm. Think shade and air movement.
  • Conserve battery and processing while being in the heat. Shut down any apps you’re not using and turn off any services like Wifi, GPS, Bluetooth, etc.
  • Take off the case if your phone is hot. The rubber and plastic layers will act to lock in heat. Take it off give it some air.
  • Keeping your apps up to date and remove unneeded files and apps. This will help the phone use less processing and battery power, thus keeping it cooler.
  • Don’t stack electronics together. They are heat sources, so putting them side by side or stacked in the warm weather is going to heat them up.
  • Try turning it off if you get an overheating warning. Give your phone a break and get some air flowing over it to cool it down.
  • Never change temperatures too drastically. Like putting a hot phone in a freezer. This can break the phone permanently.
