do you guys bring your iphone/ipod/ipads inside the sauna? is it too hot for it?
I'd be worried about the moisture, not the heat.
I do lots of hot yoga, where the studio is similar to a sauna with a high temperature/humidity, and it's not recommended to have your phone in the room as the humidity can damage the internals of electronics. One of my instructors ruined her iPhone by having it in class.
iPhone + Sauna ? = Really dumb idea..Really, really dumb
Why the heck would you bring your iPhone into a sauna in the first place?
The typical temperatures inside of a sauna found on wikipedia:
temperatures typically between 158° to 212° F (70° to 100° C)
As per Apples tech specs on the iPhone 5s:
Operating ambient temperature: 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C)
I wouldn't do it.
cnet.com tested the iPhone 5 in a freezer, a fish tank and an oven when it first came out.
Baked for 5 mins or so at around 250º, the iPhone 5 did just fine. Don't know about the 5s or any other model (I'd think the 5c might start melting).
But as another poster mentioned, the issue here is NOT heat it's moisture. Liquid kills electronics. Take it in to a sauna or a place with high humidity and leave it there for a while and moisture collects. Get enough moisture collected and you have water, which is a liquid and will damage your device.
So, yeah, your device would probably survive the heat. But it probably would NOT survive the moisture.
the reason i asked is that when im at the sauna at the gym, i see people using their iphones/ipods and even an ipad LOL. i was like uhmm poor device, it's too hot for that. LULZ
People will do what they will do. What u gonna do next, say something to them? U wanna get punched?
And they act so shocked when their iDevices fail and/or their water sensors trigger. I don't think any of us with a brain do this.
just as long as you take it in the pool afterwards to cool it off.
These must be the same people that claim the water sensor in the iPad/iPhone is turning pink on their own and claim they never dropped it in the water, lol.
There is such a thing a dry heat sauna...not that the simple heat aspect of it would to electronics any good.
Agreed. Can't imagine even wanting to take it into a sauna much less actually doing it.
Why not just take it in the swimming pool or Jacuzzi with ya?
And after that rinse it off with a cold shower....
Try a cigarette in the sauna too, 3 puffs and it's gone
I'd be more worried about humidity and moisture before heat in a sauna.
...unless it's a dry heat sauna.
Wow. Just wow. Really?
Even then, it won't last long due to heat sensors.
well it is a dry heat sauna.. but im saying, it's HOT in there. people have their headphones browsing in their music with their iphones and ipads LOL i was like uhm da F!!!
Enjoy the sauna, leave out the iPhone. It's like going to meditate and bringing your phone with you.
i was at the sauna today and this dude was checking his facebook on his ip4/4s. LULZ.
i work at a gym and i see people bring them into the dry sauna and even the steam room without thought. i never bring mine in there, way too hot or humid. I'm pretty sure normal operating temperature for an iPhone is only 95. I know our sauna is kept around 200 so i wouldn't risk it.
The answer is: probably.
As with anything, YMMV.
My mum has been de-icing her car windscreen using warm water for years and it has never cracked.. some people are just lucky.
