Temperatures in the Ipswich area are dropping, with heavy snow likely to hit parts of the country over the weekend. This could also bring a surprising effect on your gadgets.
Ipswich iPhone users have been reporting that their devices have randomly turned themselves off despite having full charge. While some of this can be attributed to failing batteries there is also another stranger reason.
Almost all electronics manufacturers warn that their gadgets might behave differently if they’re taken into extreme cold or heat.
Apple’s website states that using an iOS device in freezing conditions might shorten battery life and could cause the device to switch off.
If you own Apples iPhone X, then the explanation differs. Just last month, some iPhone X owners claimed andshowed that the device’s touchscreen became unresponsive when the temperature went below a certain point. Apple confirmed this issue in a statement.
“We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment,” a spokesperson for the company said.
“After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again. This will be addressed in an upcoming software update.”
Apple has now released an update which we are told solves the issue for Ipswich iPhone users.
So Ipswich iPhone owners, if you haven’t already, make 100% sure to update your iPhone to the the latest version of iOS.
