I’ve noticed that whenever I plug my iPhone XS it almost immediately gets significantly warmer. I don’t recall this being an issue with my X. — Is this happening to your phone as well?

mine no doesn't get warm while charging with ipad charger
That’s what I’m using as well. It’s the 12W iPad charger + an Anker cable. Same ones I used with my iPhone X and didn’t have any heat issues then.

Any idea what could be causing this?

All devices with lithium ion batteries get warm while charging. If it's scalding hot, then it may be a problem. If it's just a little warm, you're fine.

My Xs Max is cooler charging than any phone I’ve had before. 8+, 6s+, 6+. When using MacBook Pro charger it gets warm but not hot. (Rapid charging). My wife’s iPhone rapid charges a lot. Mine spends most of its life on a wireless charger or plugged into the car. Mine never gets warm to the touch.
