    yes i've seen it and it was in previous phones also but do to the faster processor this means it is easier to over heat. you can also get it if you leave your phone on and sitting in direct sunlight for too long
    im glad the iPhone does this so that you dont damage your expensive hardware

    thats what i said when i first saw it also

    it also does on occasion with out telling you... like when you leave the phone plugged into long it turns off charging so the battery doesn't over heat or over charge that why sometimes you wake up the next day after charging with 98% battery instead of full 100

    I hate that. But I find that if I plug it in, and touch it at 5 or 6 am, and then go back to sleep (you know, to check messages and such) it THEN stops charging and then drains. I have to unplug then plug in again when I wake up and then it goes back up to 100.

    REALLY strange. I might complain in a later moment. Lol. Too cool of a phone to complain right now.

    Must admit I've never seen that before and I am so glad you posted it. Also it is really good the iphone does this, takes a little worry off my mind but saying that I didn't even contemplate it overheating.

    Yes, I got this message earlier this summer after I left the phone in the car on a hot day in the sun. It's a good feature because if the phone were to try to operate at temps beyond the operational range, the components could be permanently damaged.

    When the battery is 100% charged it stops the charge. This happens on phone batteries. This way there's not a chance of "overcharging."

    I think that the phone should run within it's limits so that we never see this message

    It also does this when left in a hot environment . E.g. In direct sunlight . It won't show you that unless necessary
