iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it.


My iPhone Twitter livestream stopped: I looked at the phone atop my car's dashboard and saw the screen pictured above.

That's a new one to me.

I wonder how many other hidden screens exist.

For example, is there one for when you're out in the cold that says 

iPhone needs to warm up before you can use it.

Look at the profile of the phone to make sure the battery has not swollen.

Yeah, the black mirror effect... I see a lot of people leaving their phone screen side up in the sun, it's a great way to get it to over heat. The cpu will throttle first, but there isn't any way to cool it down when it gets hot from an external source.

Don't expose it to a large concentration of helium, it will kill it.
