    Is it just me or does anyone notice the iPhone 5 running iOS 7 beta geting hot when watching video?
    I just finished watching a 30 minute video clip and when I picked up my iPhone it felt extra warm. I first noticed this couple of weeks ago. I wonder if anyone else had that same problem.

    Ive had the issue on Beta 1; havent really tried other betas yet though.

    Think about how much harder your phone is working.

    Mine gets boiling on iOS 6. Don't think it's too much of an issue, it always cools quickly and works fine.

    reset all network settings
    reset all settings

    Those 2 should take care of it.

    Maybe your iPhone gets turned on by the type of videos you watch. Cut back on the ******* vids buddy.


    But seriously, I haven't had the issue since beta 1. That usually tends to happen when playing graphic intensive games... don't know what it is in your case.

    I'm able to cook an egg on my iPhone 5. My God.

    Not at all. The only time it seems to get hot is when its charging and its in the sunlight.

    No it does not.

    Yes. If you fire up Xcode are you seeing repeated errors in the console?
  14. macrumors 6502a


    Yes it used to but I haven't noticed it much anymore. Not to say that it doesn't, just haven't noticed


    When that happens I usually turn it off until it cools down! Mines a brand new iPhone 5 , don't want to fry my baby :)

    Mine does seem to get warm when its playing videos and doing more processing.
  18. macrumors 68020


    Oh ya. Can fry an egg on it sometimes.

    On beta-1, definitely.
    Then I did a clean install and that took care of it.
    On betas 2-6, not so much.

    I used to have the heat issue on my iPhone 5 with iOS 7.
    I managed to cure this by turning off some of the location/system services.

    I used to have this issue, I managed to sort it out by turning off some of the location/system services and turned my phone off for about 5 mins, when I turned it back on it has cured.

    I do not have that issue unless I am trying to upload a photo on 3G (iPhone 4S here) and it takes forever. I also turn off many location services that are unnecessary to me though.

    Hmmm I had quite a few location services on which I turned off but it seems to get hot when playing music or something...
