Namely, thermal noise needs to be overcome with higher voltages,

I'm not sure this make sense.
- Do iPhones have a higher voltage than other phones?
- Are they somehow able to vary the voltage?
- Are they meant to run hotter than others?

Your initial assertions seems contrary to common sense. Could you explain it?

There's no point in changing language often. You stick to one and master it. I have a coworker who handles most legacy apps, it doubles the time taken to make fixes because he's in the wrong context.

I'd say 5 years is a good run for a language, you can return to it in a day later on. Sure you can do a quick hack in a non-mastered language, but your style aint stable and 3 months down the line it'll be spaghetti.
