View Full Version : iPod Touch gets quite hot

Feb 11, 2008, 09:43 AM
After being on for a bit my Touch gets quite warm/hot. I can still easily hold it but its just noticeably warmer. Is this normal?

I do believe so. Mine did when I had it. It's probably just from the backlight / battery usage.

It's normal with electronic devices. I've been using my touch for half an hour in front of the tv and all I'm noticing is sweaty hands.

mine gets hot too, would this affect processor life?

Nah I think it's the processor contributing to this heat

it is electronic and has a metal back, it will get warmer when in use.

I've had mine for a day and as you can imagine I've been putting it through its paces (new toy and all). It warms up a bit, especially towards the bottom, but I can't by any stretch of the imagination call it "hot", just warm. On the other hand, this is all subjective :)

normally mine isnt hot but i noticed when i use an emulator software like gpsphone it will get hot after 15 or 20 minutes

it also gets hot just from holding in the hand too

my ipod gets pretty warm at the lower backside when I play Final Fantasy 1
out of zelf protection it shuts te app down and I see my iPod menu...
I really hope this is not very bad for my iPod...
but it's pretty annoying when it shuts down and my game wasn't saved...
so does anyone know if this is detrimental to my iPod?

(sorry I don't have an answer to the forum question...:rolleyes:)
