  • iPhone Temperature Warning Screen Discovered!
    We've seen various weird iPhone screenshots before, including that of the Prototype OS, but this one is nice and new... and hot.



    A guy named Jeff posted a screenshot of the iPhone indicating the iPhone got overheated. There's no doubt if it's fake or real as the same can be found even in the Apple Knowledge base, but most of us have never actually seen it.

    Donít sit next to a pool in Scottsdale Arizona when itís 104 degrees or your iphone will melt away! So how to fix it fast? I put the iPhone between 2 cold beers and it worked!
    If you've seen this screen before, let us know about your experience!

      As an AT&T employee I have seen this screen once.. I was selling an 8gb 3G iPhone to a customer and as I was activating it... that screenshot came up... I was really confused because I had never seen that or even herd of that before.. (let alone I just opened the box and the phone was cool).

      I had to put the phone in the back as a DOA (Dead On Arrival) and get another one for the customer.. who wasn't sure they wanted an iphone already..

      I wish I had a screenshot to prove that it is real... oh well.

      I've had mine out in the Chesapeake Bay many times while fishing in the spring/summer and never had that problem and it was like 90 degrees out. Guess I may have just been reaching the peak of "Temperature Overload". I'll be sure to keep it in the cuddy and off the deck for now on. Sucks cause thats what I use as GPS.

      Had this happen on a 95 degree day in Florida. I only had it in the car for 20 minutes. Pretty scary to see!

      Forgot my phone in the car one day for a couple of hours. Went back and the screen came up with a message saying that or similar. Cooled it down in front of the air contitioner and it started working again.

      I was using mine at room temp and I got that temp warning. I was using it constantly though.

      After I got my iPhone 4 this screen came up a couple times. I wound up returning the pjone because it had other issues. My replacement has been working great ever since.

      There is also a file you can edit if you want to disable the alert:
      private\var\preferences\SystemConfiguration\OSTher malStatus.plist

      I only have this file on my 3G not 2G


      Yeah, My iPod Touch 4g says that the temperature is too high 24/7, and i was wondering how to get rid of that file, or if i even can? mind showing me?
