I've been up to around 13,000ft with my iPhone. Hell, I've even brought my MBP which has a hard drive up Vail pass. That's around 11,000ft. Everything worked fine. These restrictions have some wiggle room (TONS of wiggle room for devices which don't have hard drives) and are in place mostly for the manufacturer to cover their ass.

The reason Apple lists safe operating conditions is to cover their butts in case some fool tries to use this thing in open space, or in a volcano, or some other such ridiculous environment where the phone was neither designed not tested to function properly. I am sure it can work in much colder conditions with less/more pressure than it is rated to. But apple didn't test those conditions, maybe at all, and so we have a disclaimer.

I didn't see there was a second page when I posted it. Was late last night and was browsing on my iPhone. In any case, what's the problem. If anything, it backs up information already given, right? No big deal. We are here to help, or at least that's what I was trying to do.

Nonoperating temperature: −4° to 113° F (−20° to 45° C)
Relative humidity: 5% to 95% noncondensing
Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet (3000 m)

I had my phone out when skiing down from approx 2700 m height to about 1900.

I'm not very sure about the accuracy of those numbers but I wanna be sure if it could be a reason why my phone is sluggish on homescreen and decreased battery time ?
i took it up to 3456m while skiing. Took couple of pictures and then went on skiing so all these altitude numbers are bullpoop

The Internet is a crazy place, eh? Disagree with somebody, and they flame you. Agree with somebody, and they flame you as well.

Just so you are aware, a pressurized cabin does not have the same atmosphere pressures as being outside. So as far as your phone is concerned, it was not over 3000m in the air.

Sorry. You're right. This is an open forum and you were being helpful, I just reacted wrong.

Not sure if I'm missing something, but 7,000<10,000

Took it up to Mt. Everest. Wasn't long before Tim called and said to drop it so I let go. Came down the next day and found it sitting in the snow… Siri was tearing that she was left alone for the night. Tim no longer responds to me cus Siri told him how I treated her; oh well - S4 to the backup.
