    Not at all and I use both a wireless fast charger and plug in.

    Edit; I really misread your initial post. I thought I read your iPhone was heating up during charging. (not sure why..LOL). JustMeD has a better response.

    What is it currently doing? Is it backing up to iCloud? Did you recently restore from an iCloud backup, and if so, is it still syncing photos, videos, etcetera back to the phone? Those things will cause the iPhone to get warm. Even playing certain games or having the screen lit up for a good amount of time will cause the iPhone to get warm.

    It's normal to get a little warm during extreme use, but if you're uncomfortable with the speed and amount of heat that's happening, I would definitely contact Apple and make a Genius Bar appointment. Which type of charging method are you using?

    Im going to have to check into my settings. I think you are right. It could be something thats syncing in the back ground

    Ok good. It's been my experience that some third party cables and blocks can also cause heating problems.

    Depends on what you are doing. If you are doing a personal hotspot or playing a graphically intensive game it might get a bit hot, but most phones do get hotter than others . Did you get a temp reading of your phone?

    not yet how do i get a reading? And tbh i asked several people if they felt my phone was hot and they answered No. i think it just might be me overacting a bit lol

    Yes, using with a silicon back cover the phone is heating up alarmingly. But now after removing the back cover the phone is just as cool as can be! The culprit is therefore the back cover allowing no air cooling!

    No I haven't but I also haven't really done a lot of processor intensive stuff other than photo editing which hasn't made my iPhone XS Max hot.

    The back cover must be blocking the cooling fan hidden in the Apple logo on the back.

    So far the only time it gets hot is if I use my Qi charger in my car, but if I use the Qi charger (Mophie 5W) at home no issues.

    My wifes 6S Plus got really hot the other day for no reason.
