You may think that your iPhone is protected against the harshest of winters but that is not true. Cold weather often leads to poor battery performance. It is not unlikely for your iPhone to suddenly die despite having 20% of battery life left in low-temperature areas. So why does your iPhone’s battery die in cold weather?
All iPhones are created with a lithium battery like many other rechargeable devices. While they are chosen for their ability to charge quickly and don’t need to be completely died before recharging, they do not perform well when temperatures drop. Lithium batteries slow down when exposed to cold temperatures, decreasing the circulation of electricity, causing your iPhone to suddenly shut down. In some cases, the shutdowns are unexpected, and that is because they were designed like that to protect your device’s electronic wirings from low voltage.
What To Do When Your iPhone Battery Dies?
The great news about this situation is that it is only temporary. Your iPhone will return to normal working conditions when moved into a warmer temperature room or area. In the event that your iPhone dies, do not restart it until you’re inside and wait a while to give your phone time to warm up. Restarting your phone immediately could permanently damage the battery life.
It’s not only the battery that is vulnerable to damage but other delicate parts like LCD screens can be damaged by extreme temperatures. Cold temperatures can cause your iPhone’s screen to crack or break, especially if it already had a nick already.
How to Protect your Phone
Don’t Leave them Out For Long
Don’t leave your phone in cold places like a parked car during the winter. In the instance that you need to leave them behind, it is recommended that you turn it off instead of putting it to sleep.

Your body heat will keep your device warm, which will keep it from suddenly dying.
