Part 1: Why iPhone Automatically Shuts Off in Cold Weather?

Specifically, they estimate that at -18 degrees Celsius a Li-ion may only deliver 50% of its capacity.

According to Apple, iPhones and other iOS devices operate most efficiently when the ambient temperature is between 32 degrees and 95 degrees. And iPhone is actually designed to shut down automatically under certain conditions, such as extremely cold temperature. To an iPhone user, some of those shutdowns might seem unexpected, but they are designed to protect the device’s electronics from low voltage.
