    So my iPhone 5 literally freezes to death in the cold. One moment, it will be on, and the next moment, it will suddenly power off, and show the battery symbol that says it needs charging.
    But, when I warm it back up, the iPhone will power on, even without getting any charging.
    I take it skiing, and it always does this. Is this something I should be concerned about? Will it have a negative affect on the battery life?

    It shouldn't cause any issues. The phone is just not meant to be used in extremely cold or hot conditions.

    If it's within its temp spec range (back of the manual, all spelled out) it shouldn't do this. Otherwise they can't have any iPhones in Switzerland? :rolleyes:

    Batteries is known to be affected by cold weather but not this suddenly. U have to be skiing in Siberia.
