Tip 1: Keep your phone out of the sun!

It is necessary to keep your phone out of direct sunlight. This sounds logical, but often enough you leave your phone next to you when you are outside. You are probably not even aware of your poor iPhone boiling in the bright sun. The best thing you can do is putting your iPhone in the shadow or leave it in your bag - even when it is not that warm outside.

Tip 2: Do not leave your phone in the car

As you probably know, it gets really - and I mean really - hot in the car when it is parked in the sun for a while. This is not only uncomfortable for you, but also for your phone. Do you use your iPhone as navigation and leave it on your dashboard? Or do you leave it on the seat next to you? Take your phone with you. Even if you are heading to the store to run some errands, just put it in your bag or pocket and bring it along.

Tip 3: Heat sources should be avoided

It is apparent to avoid heat sources, you say? But what about a barbecue or a sandwich maker? Most people forget that these devices are high heat sources too. When you put your iPhone close to one of these devices, it could overheat. In other words, sunlight is not the only source you should avoid.

No! My phone got overheated, what now?

Are you to late and does your iPhone already display the warning that it needs to cool down before using it? Take it out of its smartphone case - if you use one - and put your phone on a cool place. This could be in the shadow or next to an ice cold drink, but you can also use a ventilator to quickly cool down your iPhone. After a while you can use your phone again. Keep the three tips in mind to prevent overheating again.
