    Actually this happened to me this morning,was listening to a podcast as I was walking for exercise.I generally walk 4 miles or more so I know approximately how far and how long it took before I got the message.I had my phone in my jacket pocket because it was snowing out,temps were in the 20's.I was about 30 minutes into my walk when the podcast stopped ,I looked at the screen and seen that familiar temperature icon and warning message.Took the phone out and exposed it to the outside air thinking that it could not get enough air circulation in my pocket.It did not help ,it must have to shut down in a safe mode for a given amount of time ,whatever that is ,either internal temp or combination of time/temp.I got home about 30 minutes later ,plugged it into my charger because I was at 50% before I started my walk ,it now read 42% charge.The screen did not react to my touch swipe for a few minutes,could of been too cold but soon after it worked just fine.Don't have any answers just figured I would post this and read the blogs to see if this was a common issue.Kind of surprised me whenthis happened so I guess I will keep an eye on it for now.

    I've seen someone else's screenshot of it. Never on my phone though.

    I never seen it. Didn't realize it would tell you if your phone needed a cooling period.

    It's happened to me before. Granted, I was driving home from NY with my phone charging and google maps spitting out directions with the sun blaring on me and my phone.

    Never happened to me on my iPhone . But when I had my android phone it would over heat due to overlocking and playing games for hours . Device would be laggy as hell . Devices have thermal protection when it's gets to hot it will either throttle down the cpu and things will get funky not work right or just turn off

    I haven't seen it on my own devices but I used to work for a cellphone store. I'd seen it on a few devices. Mostly ones left in the car, in Texas heat.

    I could of sworn my 6 was going to show that but didn't. Just overheated with no warning.

    Yup, it was when I had my black iPhone 5. I was on a road trip and fell asleep with it in my lap. When I woke up the temperature warning was on and I swear you probably could've cooked a egg on the thing.

    I'm joining the conversation late... but, I have only seen that warning when I had the iPhone 4S and I saw it ALL THE TIME. Now that I have a 5S, I have yet to see it. The only time I noticed it was on hot days and it was in my pocket all day as I'm moving around for work, or on the beach. I'll have my phone plugged in, playing 3D heavy games, connected to bluetooth accessories all at the same time and the phone got warm, warmer than I'm comfortable with, but like I've said I have yet to see it appear on my 5S.

    Just a thought... Could it possibly be the type of case you're using? I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this. I personally only use cases that snap on from the back and there no front to make it a "capsule" so heat goes away fairly well.

    Its a lot colder out here so never had a warning like that, but it does a bit strange sometimes because of the cold..

    Don't worry about it this has happened to me before when the temperature is either too hot or too cold. The phone is fine in battery wise it just needs to be in a not too cold or too hot of an environment to work properly. It's allright I'm not so sure everyone here knows what is going on though.

    Last night I went for a walk with my phone in my pocket. After 25 minutes at 14F, my phone displayed the SAME warning. It wasn't too hot. It was the first time that I have seen it drop below operating temp. I put it in my armpit while I drove a few miles and it recovered.

    Once, on a plane. I had it on the external charger and was filming the sky. Charging produces heat and filming produces heat, combined it's a guaranteed oven

    I held my iPhone on the cooling vents right above me and the warning disappeared.

    Just happened to me this morning, while the phone was in my hand, standing in the shade at a football scrimmage. But, boy, was it hot, even in the shade. Obviously. Even my phone couldn't take it.
