Uh, oh. Looks like there is something to take seriously about the reports that some are experiencing heat issues with the iPhone 3GS and the earlier iPhone 3G running the 3.0 OS. Apple has issued an Heat Advisory warning users that they could experience problems in an environment where temperatures exceed 95 degrees Fahrenheit and depending on how heavy the tasks drive the processor. The article also talks about extreme cold as well. Coming as the users get ready to enjoy a forecast hot 4th of July weekend, this won’t sit well with many who want to video all those 4th of July barbecues and fireworks.
I’m sure this will bring peals of outrage especially since one of those processor intensive listed is playing music in direct sunlight. I’m guessing we’ll hear more about this in the days to come. On the face of this, I don’t think any geek worth his/her salt doesn’t already know that extreme heat and extreme cold can affect their devices, so this looks like a PR move to try and head off trouble ahead.
