iPhone Screenshots – Excessive Temperature Warning

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, November 11, 2011

How do you know if your iPhone is too hot?

If you can’t hold it in your hand?


Developers obviously considered that issue, and created a screenshot just to let users know if the phone overheated.

Undoubtedly, there are numerous other iPhone screenshots about which many – save developers – are unaware.

Here is another.

After the devastating tornadoes of April 27, 2011, over 100 of TVA‘s major power feeder/transmission lines and their towers were destroyed. Consequently, electrical power was out in much of North Alabama for quite some time (very nearly a month) – from about Birmingham northward to the AL/TN state line – which accounts for approximately 1/2 the state’s population, and geography. My only alternative to recharge the iPhone was to place it in the car to charge. To be clear, there was no cellular telephone service for any carrier because of the lack of electricity and because some cellular towers were destroyed, as well. So I only used the smartphone’s non-communication applications, and checked periodically for any signal presence. As you can see, there was no signal detected. I’ll write more about how and why cellular telephone companies – AT&T, Verizon, etc. – should update and improve their service in a later entry.

When I made this shot, I had left the windows up. Neither the iPhone, nor my vehicle were directly in the sun. That’s just how hot it can get in a car!

Imagine the folks that leave their pets – or even worse, their young children! – in parked cars during warm months!

This is a screenshot from the iPhone 3GS with iOS 3.1.3.
