    I've randomly discovered this bug while using the camera which causes the phone to believe your iPhone has overheated and it's too hot to use the flash.

    Open Camera, go to Video, switch to front facing camera, go to Photo. Now there should be an exclamation point in the top left and when you tap it an error claims the iPhone needs to cool down. Very odd!

    Maybe the phone really does need to cool after seeing our attractive faces for a moment :rolleyes::p

    Is anyone else experiencing this? I have a 6s Plus running iOS 10.0.1.

    Wow! Glad to see I'm not the only one. I've already reported it to Apple, so hopefully they'll see and can fix it!

    This bug still persists on 10.0.2.

    I wonder if they've noticed it on 10.1 Beta yet :rolleyes:

    Rejoice, it's there in iOS 10.1 beta 1~ iPhone 6s Plus. i do appreciate your discovery of such bug if its genuinely made by you. But for your honor, i'll update the wiki of iOS 10.1 beta 1.

    Confirmed on my 7+ with 10.0.1. I was waiting to update to 10.0.2 but it looks like it's safe so I'll probably update today. From what I've read it doesn't get fixed with 10.0.2 though.

    It's there, and Apple needs to fix it, but it's meaningless. The flash doesn't do you any good for the front-facing camera anyway. When you switch back to the back camera again, the warning goes away.

    On the 7/7+ the front 'flash' is certainly more useful because the screen's max brightness is now brighter at ~700nits
