    I want to know how great the effects of cold weather are on the iPhone 5 or any phone in general. I am not allowed to bring a cellphone into work so Ieft my iphone in the car. It was a steady 30 degrees F during the five or so hours the phone was outside. When I left work I noticed my iphone battery had completely drained. Note that prior to work all I did was some web surfing. Battery life wasn't low although I don't remember the exact number. Look at how bad my usage was. Note that I was using the phone in the charge before this occurred so that is why it shows this. Does the cold affect battery this badly? I usually get around 8 hours usage.
