Hey,

Anyone else also find that your (iPhone 6 for me) is now getting and staying hot when charging ever since 10 beta 3? It wasn't like this in previous versions.
If I have my phone charging overnight, in morning the phone is warm/hotish each time.
And it also gets quite hot when using the phone for short periods outside in the sun - for some strange reason.

Something is off with beta 3 with this issue.

It's all genuine and all the same equipment as before. Just beta 3 is only difference and it's now keeping the phone hot when charging - even when fully charged hours before but still plugged in.
And it runs hot during other normal usage times too.

Thanks. Checked asked not the issue as I force close all apps before charging for last few nights as a test - no change. and have rebooted the phone.
Maybe next beta will be better.

Hmm, not noticed it getting hot for me. I reckon it could be something to do with location services running in the background. Try going to Privacy > Location Services > System Services and reviewing which apps have theirs set to "always".

I had exactly the same problem but force quitting all apps solved it for me. Not sure which app was getting stuck.

My 6s+ gets burning hot while charging. Wasn't like this with the last version either. Literally gets hot seconds after plugging in and cools down when it gets up to around 85-90%.

Good to know I'm not the only one and it does seem like a problem introduced in beta 3.
Hopefully it is sorted in the next version.
