iPhone future generations will stop off in the cold, regardless of the degree of wear of the battery. It follows from the content of the new patent was issued by the world intellectual property office in the name of Apple engineers. According to the description of the invention, in Cupertino have developed a special method the internal structure of the battery, thereby able to improve its resistance to external impact and thus to increase the efficiency of ions in low temperatures.
Despite the fact that the design of all of the batteries provides an insulating layer, experience shows that in most cases it does not take into account the climatic characteristics of the Northern regions. According to Apple engineers, the problem must be resolved by additional insulation, which will prevent accidental disconnection of mobile devices, protecting internal components from short circuiting. Usually it happens in case of damage from drops, ingress of moisture or significant temperature changes.
Why iPhone turns off in the cold
The loss of ions that underlie the batteries, its efficiency is typical mainly for compact devices. With decreasing sizes of batteries, they lose their resistance to outside influence, and therefore more prone to disconnecting at the slightest sign circuit. In this case, the device can be unplugged, even if it is charged to 50% and more, in order to minimize the risk of more serious damage.
Apple already has its own method of dealing with unintentional outages-branded smartphones, which consists in the forced reduction of productivity of processors. Thus, one can mitigate power fluctuations that are detrimental to of worn batteries. For the first time this method was introduced with the release of iOS 10.2.1 as a temporary means to deal with the reboots of the iPhone 6s, but was later added to all smartphones older than one year.
