As the temperatures continue to drop the winter, it is important to make sure you’re keeping warm. You know you need to keep your home, family and pets warm, but have you thought about your cell phone? Below are some tips and tricks for taking care of your phone this winter:
- Cold weather puts an extra strain on your battery, so make sure you have a car charger or extra power source with you.
- When your phone is exposed to cold temperatures, the screen can become extra fragile, so handle it with care. If possible, let it warm up before you try to use it again.
- Try to keep your phone in warm locations—don’t leave it in your car extended periods of time, and if you’re partaking in outdoor winter activities like sledding or skiing, it’s best to leave your phone at home. If you are going to be outside for a long time and must have your phone, keep it in a zipped coat pocket.
- You dress warmer in the winter, so why not your phone? A thick leather case will help protect your phone from the elements. Think of it as a sweater for your cell.
