    My family just switching from sprint to tmobile. As a result i had to give up my iPhone 6 64gb for an iPhone 6 plus 128gb. Lately i have noticed my iPhone getting hot in the upper right hand corner. None of my previous phones have done this. Im not doing anything processor or grafic intensive. Just texting calling and the occasional snapchat. I have called apple and restored which has caused me to lose all of my stuff pretty much. i can't go to the apple store until this weekend because i am 15 and don't drive. The phone isn't like getting too hot to handle but too hot for my taste i guess you could say. please help me

    You need to take the iPhone to an Apple Store (like you said) and get them look at it. . . . I have an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB and it does not even get warm, so I’m guessing that is not normal.

    Definitely not normal operation...if you're not playing graphic intensive games or streaming media for long periods of time, that thing shouldn't be getting hot at all.

    Dude, have you made a Genius Bar Appointment with the nearest Apple Store yet? If not, what are you waiting on? As already stated, what you're experiencing is not normal so don't wait until it burns your house down to realize you should have taken the device to an Apple Store to have it checked out.

    As the previous posters have said, you need to take the device into a Apple Store and have it looked it.

    I've had my 6 plus since February and mine gets warm/hot when it's in my case. I've been to the Apple Store and they've said nothing other than its fine. When I don't use a case it's fine, like normal but that's normal for any phone.

    I have tried that and it makes no difference. No matter how I take the phone out the case or clear things it makes no difference.

    Replace it...doesn't get much more clear cut than that.

    Happens to me sometimes too. But mostly while I'm charging and sometimes when I have the brightness all the way up.

    How is your signal level when it's hot? I had an android phone that would get hot whenever I had a crappy signal.

    Hey. I went through the exact same thing on my iPhone. But I fixed it. Its basically a software issue. The cpu of your phone gets to 100% potential even for little tasks such as texting or calling thus going hot (Which it should only get when you're playing graphic intensive games or something that requires cpu power). The fix? I just installed a fresh copy of iOS 8.3 on my iPhone and voila! All that heat up problems went away. Please make sure to set up your iPhone as new when you restore. I'm positive it will fix your problem.

    I am having the same exact problem. Except, I'm on iOS 10.2. I'll just be on Snapchat, texting, or maybe subway surfers. My iPhone 6s Plus gets warm/hot in the right corner by the camera and has been doing it for a long time. I contacted apple and they actually gave me a brand new phone and it does the exact same. I have asked friends with the same phone or older and they have never had a problem with there iPhones gettin warm or hot and we do the exact same thing. Will someone please help me figure out why my iPhone is doing this. It's only 4 months old.
