    Default iPhone 7 Plus getting 🔥

    Morning!

    I've had the iPhone 7 Plus since it came in my mail on the 16th. This phone has been very hot at least twice a day. When I took my SIM card from my 6 Plus & put it in my 7 Plus, it immediately got too hot to even touch. I was worried but it eventually cooled. I'm hoping this isn't an ongoing issue.

    Anyone else having this issue???

    Nope. If it's gets too hot to touch again I would definitely get it seen to, preferably at an Apple Store if there's one near you.

    I have not noticed much heat all. Runs cooler than my S7 Edge. Even while charging.

    I had a friend who just got his and while it was restoring he said it got really hot and he heard the dreaded buzzing/hissing coming from the back middle. Seems like it could be an issue with the App Store and downloading apps or something maybe. Not sure, I have had zero issues.

    Haven't had any heat issues with an iPhone. Sometimes it might get warm if I'm charging and streaming on it but it's not bad

    Warm is ok when the phone is chugging hard but not hot to touch.

    Mine was pretty warm last night installing and setting up for the first time. iPhone 6+ previous didn't get that warm but it seemed fine later.

    My old 5s use to get really warm when I first got it but settled down after a couple of weeks. Didn't have that issue with my SE or my GFs 7+

    The first couple of days can be really rough on your iDevice. Between higher than normal usage and the taxing restore process, a lot of things can cause problems. That being said, your phone should probably only get "warm" that one time, and if it's hot to the touch you should go to the Apple Store ASAP.

    It was reported the 7+ will get much hotter than the 6s+ , but it shouldn't get that hot. If it continues and they say nothing is wrong don't be like me and contact Apple immediately

    Any device with an internal lipo (battery) should never get too hot to touch! Unless your skin is really sensitive, this temp is easily 115-120+ degrees Fahrenheit and those temperatures degrade batteries quickly. The cpu will throttle as well. That's not normal operating conditions by any means. When a device is in the settle in period of getting lots of updates on a fast wifi connection, etc. its normal to get warm. But not searing hot! Of course if it's getting this hot it should display a message that it's too hot and needs to cool down. The only time it will do this (and is normal) if it gets left in a hot car. And if that happens it should be cooled immediately. (not by putting in the freezer!)

    Hot to the touch seems crazy. Warm is normal. My 6s Plus gets warm when doing some heavy gaming or other intensive tasks, but otherwise stays nice and cool. If it gets that way again I would most definitely get it looked at by the Genius Bar at an Apple store if possible.
