Keeping your iPhone within acceptable operating temperatures

Apple issued a support article outlining methods to keep your iPhone 3G and/or iPhone 3GS operating within acceptable operating temperatures.

This document seemed to surface soon after a number of reports about the iPhone 3GS overheating and displaying the dreaded “Temperature!” warning.

    apparently this issue is not new, and does not mean Apple is “admitting” a heat problem specifically with the 3GS

    Ya this is not new, Apple had many issues with all iPods/iPhones. Currently the white 3GS (Again) are having heating damage, check here… http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=5693

    I got the white 16gb 3gs and it actually stays much cooler while charging and browsing the net than my 3g used to.

  • Just to clarify: nowhere in this post or the linked does it say Apple is “admitting” anything. The issue has been raised in the past, however, only recently (june 25th/09) has Apple updated the article “HT2101” as a result of the high rate of complaints about the iPhone heat issues.

    I remember seeing this issue appear with the iPhone 3G, but it seems to be far more prevalent with the new 3GS. I haven’t noticed much of a heat difference with mine, but I currently have it in a Vaja case so I don’t think I’d really be able to feel a heat increase unless it was on the screen.

  • Just noticed this warning screen on my 3G the other day. Happened once, and lasted for maybe 30 seconds. It was a hot day, the phone was mounted in a windshield mount in direct sunlight, was charging and using the GPS. I’m not that surprised.
