    When it gets hot, it shuts off to ensure it doesn't get damaged; it's a safety feature. It'll probably turn on once it cools down again. Did you put it anywhere where heat was being applied?

    Faaling that, have you noticed any swelling or gaps at all that might indicate the battery is damaged or has become unseated? Has it been dropped by someone recently? Some users have reported that a dropped iPhone can have internal damage that could lead to excessive heat.

    Welcome to iMore! Check for a rogue app. Those can cause heating.
