Exposure to sunlight may have a significant impact on the internal components of mobile phones. Even in some cases, smartphone overheating can cause data loss, and also slow down performance. Hot phone batteries may leak quickly, and even hot phones can threaten safety.
Therefore, here are six ways to prevent your phone from overheating during the dry season or hot weather temperature
Remove the phone from the pocket
When the day is hot, do not always put the phone in the bag to lower the temperature of the phone and make it cool again. The body heat will inhibit the cooling process of the phone.
Users should also keep the phone away from objects that are easy to conduct heat. In some instances where the phone is overheating, it can cause a battery leak or even burn the phone.
Enable ‘Airplane’ mode
Not only the external temperature can cause the phone to overheat. If users play games or make phone calls nonstop, the phone works harder and produces heat. Especially when combined with temperatures that are hot as during the dry season, this can cause the smartphone overheating.
So once, set the airplane mode to cool the phone back, or even better if the user stops using the phone for some time.

Do not leave the phone in the car
The motor is like a greenhouse in the sun. Research shows that cars parked under the sun at 35°C will reach a temperature of 46°C within an hour.
Apple Company recommends not to use the iPhone when the temperature is over 35°C. They also add a message to its users not to put the phone in a place that has a temperature of more than 45°C.back to menu ↑
Do not charge the battery in direct sunlight.
If the user leaves the phone under exposure to direct sunlight while charging the phone battery, then the sunlight will add heat that has been transferred from the electricity connected to the phone battery. Of course, this will cause the phone to be hotter than it should beback to menu ↑
Do not charge the battery under the pillow.
Do not leave the phone charging under any pillow, blanket or any warm material. In hot weather, the heat flow will be transferred to the phone and battery charging can cause excessive heat if the phone is not allowed to heat out efficiently. Make sure to charge the battery in a cool place and not exposed to direct sunlight
