If a fully charged IPhone were to be left outside, for example, beside a road overnight with temps dropping to mid 20's (daytime highs of mid 40's) :


1) would there be any battery life left and


2) could phone be located 24 hours later via any Find iPhone app? (can phone be located if no battery life?)

    Welcome to the Apple Community.


    It's more than likely the phone will still have charge


    You can only locate your device when it is logged into iCloud and 'Find My Phone' is enabled, additionally the device will need to be switched on (and charged) and connected to a wifi or cellular network.


    Unfortunately, you cannot activate iCloud or 'Find My Phone' remotely.


    If the device is wiped by you or another, you may not be able to locate the device (although some have reported they can)


    Moisture may affect the phone if it's left outside.
