iPhone heats up? Here’s why and how to fix. Summer brings a general rise in temperatures and having a smartphone that is too hot may not only depend on the climate. What to do if iPhone gets too hot?
How to help Apple improve iOS 15 even before release
It is not a common problem, but if you notice that the iPhone is hotter than usual, it is necessary to intervene: it is symptomatic of something wrong and fortunately there are simple operations that could solve the problem and avoid malfunctions.
Hot iPhone why?
Hot iPhone means, first of all, processor stress; it is a phenomenon that occurs when the CPU works intensely, perhaps because there are too many apps running, or a process open in the background. From the pages of OSXdaily, a series of tips to solve.
After an update
The first is simply to wait in case you experience an iPhone overheating right after an iOS update. In this case, in fact, it takes several minutes before the entire operating system stabilizes. After the update seems complete, in fact, iPhone needs a “running-in” period to resume its normal operation. If after hours of updating the terminal is still hot, it is good to move on to the next tip.
I work in the background
Closing background apps can be the easiest way to put an end to overheating. It is possible, in fact, that some too many applications, or some malfunctioning, generate an excessive workload; to close them, simply double-tap the Home button to call up multitasking, followed by a slide upwards on the app you want to close.
Refreshing refreshes the data and the phone
If this still does not solve the overheating problem, it is possible that some application installed on the iPhone, often in use, is “buggy”. In this case it is advisable to check for updates available in the App Store. It will be sufficient, then, to open the Apple digital store directly from the iPhone, consult the updates page and click on the Update button in the single offending app, or on the Update all button, so as to always keep the applications on your terminal updated.
Use a fresh system
It is also possible that the iOS version in use has malfunctions. And then, in this case it is possible to rely on the always punctual system updates. Apple quickly notices if something is wrong with the distributed software release and often manages to release updates to fix it in record time.
To keep your terminal always updated, simply open the Settings, General, Software Update panel.
Also in the Settings panel, in case the above recommendations were not able to solve the iPhone overheating problem, the Reset item is available. At first it is advisable to try the Reset Settings item, which is less invasive and does not delete any content on the device.
Are we starting from scratch?
Even so, iPhone does not cool down over time, it is advisable to choose to Initialize content and settings, to completely reset the device. This last choice will delete all the data present; it is recommended to make a backup before initializing the terminal.
If the advice isn’t enough
Ultimately, if all the paths followed previously have not led to the desired results, the advice is to contact Apple support and, where possible, make an appointment at an Apple Store.
