IPhone or iPad getting hot – is it common?

There are some factors that sometimes make the device overheat. This is normal as long as it is not permanent. In this case it can be a hardware problem, and you need to have a service. If it happens only once in a while, it is part of the operation of the device. Some uses may cause the appliance to become hotter. 

  • Use of GPS navigation applications: TomTom, Google Maps, and any other that uses the real time location function on the device.
  • Games that demand a lot of graphics processor: the device can get very hot in applications with thicker graphics such as Infinity Blade, PUBG, Real Racing 3, etc.
  • When charging the battery: It is normal for the unit to warm up a little when charging.

All of these examples above are normal, and anticipated warm-ups by Apple, and are part of the device’s security system. The outside of the device acts as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the device to the outside air. And, if it not, then you must immediately visit to the nearest Ifixed service center.  

Temperature safety warning

When the appliance becomes too cold or too hot, the system activates a device that blocks all functions until it returns to a more acceptable temperature. All of this for user safety. Most often it happens to people who forget the device in their car, even for a few minutes. Using GPS with the device sunbathing in a car with no air conditioning on can also be a cause of overheating.

In this case, the only solution is to wait for the device to cool naturally. Do not attempt to speed up the process by placing it in the refrigerator, or in front of the air conditioner outlet, as thermal shock may damage internal circuits. After a few minutes in fresh air, the device returns to normal.

It is common, but can be a future problem

In warmer regions, attention with temperature should be redoubled. Avoid leaving it in your trouser pocket if you feel it is too hot, or storing it in sun bags or backpacks. Airy environments are always the best place for any electronics, especially our iPhones, iPods and iPads. Apart from these causes, if your IPhone is getting hot without any reasons – no use, after certain use, while not charging, etc. it is time to take your phone to the nearest Ifixed service center, the best mobile repair company in England.
