You need to click exit from the app menu or tap the return button twice to close the program. In most cases, you may not have time to quit the app. Thus you have to check your phone regularly and close the apps at one time.

2. Don’t Expose Your Phone To Direct Sunlight

While it might be better for you to leave it easily accessible, it might not be good for your smartphone. Your cellphone traps heat from the sun. While it might be obvious that a phone left in direct sunlight will heat up, if your phone already has heat-related issues, you might wanna be extra careful. In these cases, you ought to avoid exposing your phone to direct sunlight to prevent overheating.

You have to be extra careful with malware whenever you’re using your smartphone. Whenever malware or other viruses infect it, the malicious content will be spread all over the phone.

If your phone gets infected with malware, you need to run the virus scan tool on your phone to find the malware source. There are several things you need to take into account:
  • Don’t click on pop up advertisements while online.
  • Download apps from official/known online stores instead of unknown ones.
  • Avoid clicking on strange links sent by other people.
  • Have an anti-malware tool that you’ll use to scan your phone regularly.
While malware is mostly associated with stealing your personal data it might be a type of “miner” - a program that abuses your phone’s hardware for its goal. It will load your system close to 100% even when you’re not running any apps and that workload can quickly lead to overheating.

4. Keep Your Applications Up-To-Date

Software developers usually provide users with regular updates. Outdated apps will run inefficiently or contain bugs that will overuse your phone’s processor and eventually lead to overheating.

Below are the steps to take if you want to update your phone/apps:
  • Update your apps – Go to your phones app store, click on your account, and see if there are any available updates for your apps. Moreover, when you open an app, it will tell you to update it if there are any updates available.
  • Updating your phone – Go to Settings, then About phone, then My device – check for updates. Update your phone (if there are available updates) and restart your phone.
5. Don’t Use Your Phone When There’s Poor Signal

If you’re in an area with poor signal, your phone will change to a better network type automatically and will struggle to find a strong signal when you're online. Your smartphone will end up working extra hard to find a strong signal, thus leading to overheating.

If you have heat-related issued you ought to avoid making a call or surf the internet when there's poor signal. Look for a spot with better coverage if you can help it.

6. Let Your Phone ‘Rest’ If You’ve Used It For Long

Nowadays, people are so addicted to their mobile phones that they don't keep track of time. Furthermore, they continue to play on their phones while they are charging. As a result of this long usage, the phones get hot. Moreover, being on the phone for a long time or playing games also generates a lot of heat.

7. Ensure Your Phone Is Charged Properly

Your phone’s battery might be overheating because of 2 reasons:
  • You might be charging your phone with an improper charging cable.
  • Your phone might be too old.
Ensure that you charge your phone with its original charger or a branded USB cable. If your phone is old, check if all the contacts are properly connected.

8. Purchase A Glare Screen Instead Of Turning The Brightness Up

Just like running apps in the background, increasing your brightness will force the phone’s battery to work extra hard. Rather than turning up the brightness, you should consider purchasing a glare screen. You will be able to use your smartphone in the sun no matter how bright it is.

9. Turn Off Your Phone Or Switch On Airplane Mode

While this is a temporary measure, it might come in handy in a pinch: if not using your phone, turn it off or switch to airplane mode. While on airplane mode, you’ll continue to use basic functions on your phone, but that will be it. These options will save your battery and prevent it from overheating. You can use that to cool off the phone without turning it off completely.

10. Separate Your Phone From Other Gadgets

Keeping your smartphone, tablet, and even computer in one bag might assist you to keep track of your gadgets. However, if one running device is put on top of another running one, overheating will likely occur. Ensure that you keep your electronic gadgets separate.

Conclusion:

There you have it. These are some of the tips that you can put into consideration when dealing with the issue of overheating of your smartphone. Are there any other tips that you can think of that we’ve not included?
