Power down in NYC Dec 21
BroadwayCyclist

Last night my wife and I were walking on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan when between 7:00 and 7:15 both our iPhones powered down on their own, mine despite having been fully charged one hour earlier.  We had not been making calls or downloading data.  Three hours later, while in a cab on the Brooklyn Bridge, both phones powered on.  Mine showed a battery charge of about 70%.  What might be the explanation for this?

iPhone 5, iOS 8.1.2, 32 GB

It seems my iPhone 5, which is older than one year, doesn't like the cold.  Even though the air temperature was above freezing last night, the wind chill was harsh enough to shut down our phones.  The Apple forums were of help in this issue.
