Baby, It's Cold Outside (So Your iPhone Exploded)

Maybe this is all apocryphal, but a woman in Norway, while wandering in the icy wastes of the frozen North in minus 14-degree weather, picked up her iPhone only to find it had shattered in the cold. She took the phone back to the Apple Store and the geniuses refused to repair it, citing that the phone is not designed to withstand temperatures below freezing or above 35 degrees Celsius.

To be fair, the iPhone will warn you when it’s gotten too hot but sadly it won’t scream in outright pain as it is exposed to ill arctic winds.

Let this be a lesson to you, friends: always swaddle your iPhone in a wool cozy before trekking out into the Norwegian wilderness to buy some Fenalaar or Kavli.
