"listening to music while in direct sunlight"?

More comments at the Guardian

 

  • Scottspivonious

    Yeah I read about this. It's supposed to operate in an environment no hotter than 95F. Apparently Apple doesn't think people will use their phones outside in the summer.

    Yes, being unable to listen to music in direct sunlight would be a bit of a deal-breaker for me.

    Then put it in your pocket?

    Reminds me of the old gameboys whose screen would go all wonky when left in the sun.

    Maybe Apple were trying to market this phone to vampires? They usually don't mind staying out of direct sunlight.

    I haven't seen this yet on my 3G, but we'll see what happens in the summer when temperatures in Tokyo often top 40 degrees.

    but then I can't see the music controls.

    And I have even been known to sit out in the park watching music videos.

    There have been reports of the white ones becoming discoloured, but no-one's sure if it's a wide spread problem, or just the internet echo chamber. Probably worth following Apple's recommendations though; you might be tested on them if you need to take it back.

    Surely it's hotter in your pocket? I had my old HTC TyTN comprehensively fail due to being in my pocket on a hot day.  After it cooled down a bit and I removed and replaced the battery it recovered.

    Anyway, I've not seen the warning with my iPhone and it's been pretty hot here this week. Not darft enough to leave in my car though Smiley

    I wonder if that would depend on the colour of your trousers? If you're wearing light coloured pants then it might be cooler in your pocket; dark pants might be a problem.

    I'm just guessing though.

    All they have to do is brand 'listening to music in the refrigerator' as the new cool.

    The new Apple iIce – because sunlight is so yesterday.
