Jenns 4s did exactly the same thing the other day. But she had to get rescued by me, not four young firefighting stud heroes.

It's a 5S. About 10 days ago, both my Mac and my iPhone shut themselves down for no reason within half an hour of one another. Maybe something weird is happening in the iCloud.

I didn't look much at the four 20-year-old guys but I really admired their dog! (I guess I've been a married dog owner for too long...)

Great run, great elevation, great rescue!

My phone doing the same thing! So annoying

Before doing this, 2 suggestions are a full discharge and recharge, or backup, reset and restore.

I used to have issues like that with my 5 during cold weather. I found if I warmed it up for 5-10 minutes, I could get it to turn back on.

Also, check this. You might be eligible for a replacement.

Thanks, good info! Darn, I'm not eligible for a replacement but hopefully someone else reading this will find out that they are.

I had a lot of trouble with my iPhone5 during its first winter last year. It would go into a "high temperature" error mode just a few degrees below freezing, which made it useless for safety. It didn't go black but it would only allow me to make an emergency phone call. It must have been just a software "feature" since my iPhone4 could get a lot colder without any problem. I haven't had that issue this year except on the Saturday when it got super cold so I think they've changed that.

It was above freezing on Sunday afternoon and the phone was next to my (hot) body. It died when I tried to refresh a map in Safari, probably a memory-intensive task. It was as if I was asking too much after it had already played me two hours of podcasts!

I've just allowed the battery to run out completely and I'm recharging. If I wanted a bigger iPhone6, this would be a good excuse but I really don't.
