    Hi people,
    I'm in a dry sauna right now and was curious if my iPhone is safe.

    Cheers

    I'm no scientist, but I'd say if you're in there with your iPhone for more than a brief period its a bad idea. Why take the chance?

    May I suggest a higher awareness of politeness.

    It's probably not a good idea. I'm sure you can live without it for a little while.

    Honestly, if you have to ask, then you probably shouldn't.

    From Apple iPhone website:
    Environmental requirements
    Operating temperature: 32° to 95° F
    (0° to 35° C)
    Nonoperating temperature: -4° to 113° F
    (-20° to 45° C)
    Relative humidity: 5% to 95% noncondensing
    Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet (3000 m)

    So, a sauna is not a good place to use a sensitive electronic device; and Texas/Oklahoma this summer not a good place either :)

    How about a higher awareness of common sense?

    Is leaving a phone in a hot car a good idea? Batteries do NOT like heat.

    probably not a good idea...I feel the need to apologize for the rude behavior for some of the people on here. I don't understand why some can come here and ask questions and get smartA$$ responses? Does it make some of you feel empowered to be a jerk? Unbelievable.

    This is why you should have to pass a test to reproduce!

    Agreed. When I go to my fitness club, my iPhone stays in the locker.

    I'd hope so ;-) that's what people get banned from venues for. I'm not saying you do it but people using devices with cameras in private places like saunas has been known.

    Find the iPhone Sauna App, when activated, place above your head and pour the cool artic icewater just on your head to refreshen your overheated organic processor aka brains. You need to get out of that sauna fast dude.

    Probably has something to do with equalizing the pressure between the outside and inside sealed part of the LCD display.

    That being said, I know plenty of people who have taken their phones above 10,000 ft and haven't had problems (except for reception)
