With summer in full swing across the Northern Hemisphere, smartphone manufacturers are reminding users their phones can overheat.

While this is rare, the problem can be exacerbated by high temperatures and direct sunlight - conditions common in the Middle East.

Overheating can also drain battery life more quickly, or possibly even cause a phone to explode (though fortunately this is very rare).

It's recommended to keep phones in a cool, dry place whenever possible - and preferably in the shade.
