    Why store expensive electronics in your basement?

    i don't want to keep in my room because during summer the temperature is hot and humidity may cause problem to my device, especilly the battery. so base on user "Kyotoma" i made a good choice for keeping it down in my basement and worry free about too hot or too cold.. temperature in the basement is ussually range between 10-18C..

    If it fluxes between that, you could even keep it on and it would be fine. I personally would keep it off with about 50% battery life for long periods of non-use, but that's also from Apple's website on a different support page.

    i appreciate you help and advices. yesterday i was shopping around and i went into apple store to speak to one of their associate and ask them similar question, they told me it's fine, and i don't need to charge the phone 50% and have it turn off for long period.. the problem to most of the apple guys are they don't really care for your question at all. when you ask them a question they usually answer your questtion fast and they don't seem to care at all.. that really botther me sometines.
