    My iPhone 5 had horrible overheating problems. After searching around I found a fix. Try disabling ALL exchange accounts (iCloud, Outlook, Gmail etc.) Also ensure that you have the latest software and ALWAYS CLEAR MULTITASKING (DOUBLE CLICK HOME OR THREE FINGER SWIPE ON iPAD) These tips helped me, but I still took my device back to the Apple Store because I did not want a device that would overheat.

    (Yes, these are very amatuer tips that many already know. I created this to help users who may be new to the wonderful world of :apple: )

    Try turning off location services for a day and see if that fixes it. If it does that means one of the apps is using GPS to often. Do you see this icon on top?

    That is not a fix. What your implying is for battery saving not a fix for the heat problem

    I honestly don't find this to be a fix. Just my opinion. I feel this is just battery saving and not a heating problem but just my opinion and no I haven't tried it because I don't get heating problems. My iPhone works just fine and keeping it cool. I did indeed have friends that had this heating problem and tried this and the heating problem still exists and I ranted about it but if y'all say so

    I found this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4338574?start=0&tstart=0

    According to the article this fixed it for some people:
    Try turning off safari in iCloud and sending diagnostic data to apple.

    Not quite a fix for heating problems

    But it is a work around It isn't about battery saving - although that is a by-product.

    I also get overheating and it seems to be the rate if discharge in the battery causing it to overheat - which it does because there is a bug in a program that hasn't ceased a power hungry operation.

    This method works intermittently. - the other thing that works for me is to close every application and soft reboot. All it does is close the errant programme and start again. If I knew which software was at fault it would be easier (delete that s.o.b...!) but for now - it - it is the best we got.

    Still ned a fix tho...

    You can install one of the system utility apps and see the rogue process. It is also often associated with looping authentication attempts.
