    Default iPhone 7 getting hot

    It wasn't a problem yesterday. I got up this morning, connected my beats and listened to some music. I noticed my case getting a little warm so I took the phone out of the case. It wasn't real hot but warmer than I think it should be. I closed all of the apps running in the background and shut the phone down until it was cool. I rebooted the phone and it immediately started to get warm again. Right now I have it shut down

    Thanks for any help.

    Don't worry about it. A new device needs to index data in the background so the processor is working constantly and that will cause it to heat up. This is normal and your iPhone has a built in temperature alarm so you will be fine

    Make precautions not to explode on you! It happens these days.

    My 7 ran warm when reinstalling everything but has been fine since. Do a restart (hold power button and down volume until the Apple logo pops up) and see if that solves it.

    It's the os indexing data. Give it a bit to get through everything and settle down. Let us know if it's not better in the next day or so.

    Warmer than ambient surroundings is normal, especially when charging or graphically intense gaming... if it's too warm to handle, that may be a hardware issue.

    reindexing will take a bit, give it 12 hours, do a hard reboot, and put on charge. ios 10 is warmer during sync, and things may not work correctly like the phone app (in my experience), until all my 4000+ contacts sync that's on twitter and facebook contact also.

    All phones have this. 1 or 2 days to settle and no heating and also battery life improves.
