With the onset of the cold snap, some users are experiencing a situation where the phone automatically shuts down even when there is sufficient power after the temperature gets cold. Is this normal? Does it have an effect on the phone?
According to Apple’s website, it is officially recommended that iOS devices be used in environments with temperatures between 0ºC and 35ºC. Low or high temperature environments may cause the device to change its behavior to regulate its own temperature. Using your iOS device in cold environments below the operating temperature range may temporarily reduce battery life and may cause the device to shut down. When you return your device to a warmer environment, battery life will return to normal.
Therefore, if the phone is frozen off outdoors and taken back to a warm room for charging, the battery life will return to normal and there will be no effect on the device. Still, you need to avoid such situations and reduce or avoid using your phone outdoors in cold weather.
Of course, if your device turns off automatically even when the temperature is not very low, then there may be a hardware problem that needs to be serviced promptly.
In addition, if you are using your iPad, you may encounter a situation where your iPad does not charge properly in winter.
