    So I've noticed dis since d past couple of weeks that wenever i put it in charge, my iPhone 5 heats up a lot...
    Its sometimes enuf to startle me if i accidentally touch it...
    Is it normal? Or shld i take it to apple store?
    I get battery life of abt 8 hrs now... If it is relevant!

    Edit: i use apple supplied cable and charger!

    This will not delete anything, but will factory set your settings.

    It also defrags the phone/ cleans the cache up etc

    If it is heating up as you said I would not hesitate to call and make an appt with the genius bar or do it from your apple store app and take it for troubleshooting. I am sure they will replace it for you if it is that bad.

    I had the same issue of heating up when it was prior to iOS 7.
    After the upgrade, I am not noticing it anymore.
