Blame the weather if your iPhone battery drains quicker than before

We are all aware that weather changes all around the globe because of pollution, global warming and other causes. All these changes of the weather affect us as individuals, our way of living, our health and our devices. Yes, our iPhones, iPads and iPod touches are affected by the weather, and you can check this on the Apple website. We were lucky so far, and the most acclaimed British winter has been mild and had sensitive temperatures, but the weather forecast does not look that good. Therefore, I advise you to bundle up yourself and your iPhones! If you have an iOS device and you upgraded to iOS 7, you are probably not happy with your iPhone’s battery life. Your iPhone’s battery life is expected to last even less than it does now, when there are very low temperatures outside. According to Apple’s website you should keep your device in places with temperatures between 0º and 35º C because lower, or higher temperatures might “temporarily shorten battery life or cause the device to alter its behavior to regulate its temperature.” It is also worth adding that Apple notes "dramatic changes in temperature" should be avoided. You should store the device where the temperature is between -20º and 45º C and do not leave your iPhone unsupervised in your car. If the temperature inside the iPhone exceeds its normal operating range the iPhone will show you some messages, in order to protect its internal components. The iPhone can stop charging, send alert messages and turn itself off. If any of these symptoms happen, turn it off and take it to a cooler place in order to cool down.

So if your iPhone battery drains quicker in cold weather, just take the device to warmer environments and bundle it up. Did you notice this recently? Share your experience and win an iPad case!
