Apple suggests best temperature range for the iPhone
Lately there have been complaints of iPhones overheating. While we haven't seen someone say that their handset was so hot that they fried an egg on the battery cover, we have showed you pictures of discoloration on the back of the white-colored model. Even though Apple has not commented on the overheating issue, they have made some recommendations online about what range of temperatures are best for your phone.

Apple says that if the iPhone is running in high temperature environments, you could find that the unit will stop charging, get a weak signal, dim the display, or flash a temperature warning that tells you that the device needs to cool off before it can run. Apple suggests keeping the iPhone in an environment ranging from 32 degrees to 95 degrees fahrenheit (-20 to 45 degrees C). To keep your phone away from harmful heat, the manufacturer warns you not to leave your iPhone in your car, and not to use an app over a long period of time in direct sunlight (like GPS).

Is Global Warming responsible for the iPhone's overheating issue,or is it an internal problem with the phone that Apple needs to deal with? As soon as the guys at Cupertino comment, we will pass it along.

Yeah this probably goes for iPods as well. I learned the hard way with my 1st gen nano... left it in my car one too many times... in the summer... in Phoenix. Definitely gets well above 95 degrees in a car in Phoenix in July. Needless to say I am much more careful with my 2nd gen nano that replaced the first one.

So basically, in Arizona, you'll be able to use your Apple products 6 months out of the year outdoors. Does Apple realize that it gets up to 120 degrees out here? Luckily it's a dry heat.

As dirtjenkins said, apparently people in Arizona and a few other parts of the world can't own an iPhone. Although, I bet other manufacturers have similar temperature suggestions.

Is it just me or does it say that 32 degrees fahrenheit = -20 degrees C???

Range should be 0 to 35 degrees C... this website has just lost credibility....
