    I was troubleshooting something on my phone and had to log in and out of my iCloud account several times and reboot as well. My phone got uncomfortably hot but didn't shut down. Could it get hot enough to cause damage to the internals or seal

    You iPhone should shut down if it gets too warm. It should dim the screen and throttle the CPU first as they are the biggest sources of heat.

    Ah. So if it did none of that I shouldn't be worried about long term damage

    No need to worry about damage from the iPhone itself heating up.

    Unless it's a Samsung phone ;).

    You are good. The only way your device can get rid of it's heat is through the casing so it is normal.

    If your device really gets too hot you'll see a warning as shown on this Apple support page.

    Agreed. And the only way to not notice the warning, is you have to manually dismiss it.
