A new software update for the Steam Deck now warns players if the system's temperature is getting either too high or too low.
Valve has released an update for the Steam Deck’s operating system, SteamOS, bringing with it a host of optimisations and features. Bringing the system’s version up to 3.3, the new update now also warns players if their Steam Deck is getting either too hot or too cold.
Valve has been quite clear about the Steam Deck having issues if the ambient temperature gets either too hot or too cold. The company has stated in the past that the handheld gaming PC works best in weather between 0 degrees celcius and 35 degrees celsius.
Earlier updates to the Steam Deck have also added quality of life features, including improving battery life, a new lock screen, and other improvements.
The Steam Deck has been quite popular for Valve, and has been facing shortages since its release. The company has revealed recently that production on the system has been ramping up, however. The company even announced back in June that its shipments would soon be doubled.
Steam Deck shortages are largely because of COVID-enforced shuttering of manufacturing facilities, and the planned docking station for the Steam Deck has also been delayed.
