However, since AZ sun can get intense and humidity very low, I'd suggest putting it in a spot that only gets sun until about 9 once you're into summer, then shade for the rest of the day. The low humidity will make the pot dry out fast, so you'll want to find that happy medium where it never dries out, but isn't swimming either.

Some have found that a 30%+ shade cloth goes a long way with keeping the plant looking good. Or as Chef said, not catching the brunt of the afternoon sun 100+ will also help.
Both of the above are very sound advice. Where we live in southern Oregon is much like a desert after July. I lived in Tucson, Arizona for a number of years and the summers here in southern Oregon are now getting quite similar to that climate with temps regularly getting over 100°F and relative humidity down near 20%. Flytraps can easily survive it as long as their soil is kept damp but they do look pretty ragged by the end of summer. As both @ChefDean
, mentioned, try to keep them in the shade once it gets over 95F or so and that should help them immensely. Good growing!
