Keeping Your Devices Safe This Summer

computer vision The hot and humid days of summer are here! This could spell danger for your electronic devices. Most devices have been designed to work within safe temperature ranges. If they are exposed or used in temperatures outside of this safe range, you could experience problems such as data loss or your device slowing down.

Here are some tips to keep you devices safe this summer:

Overheating Devices

According to Apple Support, the ideal temperature for an iPhone or iPad is between 32º to 95ºF if you use your devices in temperatures hotter than that you could run the risk of permanent damage.

Most laptops are good in temperatures of 50º to 95ºF anything hotter than this is asking for trouble. Laptop batteries are not heat-friendly and the components of your hard drive might expand causing permanent damage.

How To Protect Your Devices
  • Never place your devices in direct sunlight or leave in a hot unattended car. It's best to keep them in the air conditioning or near a fan.
  • Keep it clean, there are fans and other equipment in your computer designed to keep them cool.
  • Turn off services you're not using. These services are just using up your battery as well as having your phone work overtime.
