Exercise caution to avoid overheating your smartphone, PC or console during the heat wave.

French cities are expected to experience a heat-related event this Monday, July 18. Electronic devices are thus put to the test by the high temperature, which damages their components and often disrupts their operation.

These important issues, delayed by smartphone maker slowdown, battery draining faster, screen less bright, smudged or less responsive… Some are better at aging smartphones, phones, laptops and desktops, than they don’t. are for computerized devices to date, and computerized devices, it is estimated.

Many iPhones and Android phones need to be cooled to a low temperature, like 35 degrees, to work properly. “If you run iPhone software in a very hot environment where the temperature is too high, it can cause battery life to be completely reduced,” on the Apple site. The same goes for Samsung’s site, where it says about charging the phone that “it is important to take into account that high temperatures are not beneficial for our phone”. Techniques for heating phones include simple things like keeping them out of direct sunlight for a period of time.

When the temperature exceeds a certain threshold, the iPhone goes into power saving mode and displays a warning. For this to happen properly, you have to put it in a cool place and wait for it to cool down.

In this case, iPhone charging may slow or stop, the light display may turn black, the radio signal may become inoperative, and a decrease in performance is often measured. For the iPhone user, it is important to take the following safety measures to avoid the hidden dangers that the phone faces: 1. Always check the battery charge level. 2.

Turning up the volume on your cell phone without the shade of an umbrella or a cover can be a bit dangerous as it can damage it.

Many people charge their cell phones outdoors, in the heat or cold. Try to use for transport the cord that connects the original chargers of the devices. You will avoid overheating by avoiding wired charging when charging your mobile phone indoors. If this is not practical, you can completely remove the phone to improve heat dissipation. Consumers may not be covered by the phone’s warranty or lose their warranty if the phone is submerged in water after being removed.

At home, computers and consoles are also sensitive to high heat. Remember to dust off their fan to facilitate their cooling. Avoid using them in small spaces. The hot air released by the machine will dissipate better in a well-ventilated room. It is also recommended not to use them for too long and in contact with heat-sensitive surfaces, such as plastic or fabric, but rather to opt for metal or varnished wooden supports. Portable consoles are no better off: Nintendo recently warned Switch users that the latter is likely to go to sleep if its air intakes and exhausts are blocked and its temperature becomes too high.
