10 tips and tricks to stop your phone overheating

 

 

Summertime can be tough on gadgets, especially your phone. Overheating can lead to performance issues, battery drain, and even permanent damage. So here are some simple tips to help keep your phone cool:

 

1. Don’t stay out too long in direct sunlight

Yes, we’re starting off with an obvious one, but it’s still worth saying. Your phone is like you—it needs some shade on those scorching days. Keep your phone out of direct sunlight whenever possible. Don’t be like this guy in the photo, in other words. Stashing your phone in a bag or even putting it under a hat can make a big difference.

 

 

2. Lower your display brightness

High brightness settings can heat up your phone quickly. You should adjust your screen brightness to a lower and more comfortable level, or switch to auto-brightness and let your phone adjust automatically.

3. Close any unused apps

Running multiple apps in the background can overwork your phone, making it hotter. Be honest – do you really need Facebook open all day? If you regularly close apps you’re not using, you’ll be giving your phone a much-needed breather.

4. Turn off unnecessary features

While you’re closing down unused apps, you should also think about turning off any features you don’t need. Things like Bluetooth and GPS can generate heat. Turn them off when not in use and your phone will run cooler.

5. Give it some space

Phone cases can trap heat. If your phone starts feeling warm, consider removing the case temporarily to help it cool down faster.

6. Go into airplane mode

When you don’t need to be connected, switching to airplane mode can help reduce your phone’s workload. This is especially handy if you’re just using your phone for offline activities like reading or taking photos.

7. Keep it updated

Software updates often include optimisations that can help your phone run more efficiently and cool down. So, make sure your phone’s software is always right up to date.

8. Use the coolest accessories

There are quite a few phone cooling accessories out there, such as phone cooling fans or pads. These can be especially useful if you’re using your phone for heavy tasks like gaming or video streaming.

9. Try to avoid quick-charging

Yes it’s super-convenient, but quick-charging generates more heat. If you’re worried about overheating, use standard charging methods. Also, avoid using your phone while it charges.

10. Take a break

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is to simply give your phone a rest. Power it down for a few minutes to let it cool off completely.

I would have to say peanut butter!

I really love Rum & Raisin but it’s getting hard to find!

I love a 99 from Mr Whippy. 

My favourite ice cream flavour would be chocolate with nuts. Crushed walnuts preferably. 

Rocky Road

Strawberry. Has to be strawberry

I love the combination of chocolate and vanilla - separately of course but at the same time.

Wow what a great prize we'll I'm a sucker for a bit of ice cream , with hot food or cold or on its own . My favourite would be Mint choc chip , but many are a close second. 

Banana 

Chocolate 

Traditional "vanilla "

Mixed 

Tutti fruitie 

Rum and rasion 

Passion fruit

Good luck everyone 👍🏼

Userlevel 1

Imagine this: the velvety smoothness of rich chocolate ice cream, swirling in harmony with luscious black cherry cherries, and topped with the irresistible crunch of pecan nuts. This is not just a flavour; it's an experience. It's my absolute favourite—Black Forest Ice Cream.

Might be basic but you can't go wrong with vanilla. Start with a great base, and load it up on toppings and sauces 😋

Definitely a nice vanilla ice-cream topped with some lemon sorbet 🤤

Licorice and vanilla definitely. Takes me back to teenage years - it was a real phenomenon then and still going strong! However rarely see it in the UK. :-p

Mint choc chip is probably my favourite as it brings back childhood memories of going to the beach.

Stracciatella!

Christmas pudding flavour, made by Ronaldos in Norfolk.

The guy who makes their flavours is a bit of a genius and this one has Christmas pudding in it, not just flavouring.

It's delicious 😋 

Pistachio. It took the entire summer to find the nuts in my teeth! Lol

Userlevel 1

Soft scoop Vanilla

Mint choc chip! Probably the most cooling option out there, with a bit of chocolate too because you HAVE to.

Caramac flavour by Llanfaes Dairy in Brecon. Amazing 

Salted Caramel 

The good old vanilla with a chocolate flake in! 
cant beat it!

Macadamia - both nutty and creamy 😀

Quality vanilla, topped with apple or pear flavoured icecream, and then warm caramel drizzled over it, mmm, just like my favourite dessert, warm Tarte Tatin with cold vanilla on top, lush!
