    Anyone experiencing iPhone 5 with iOS7 beta3 high temperatures? I have to put in airplane mode many time a day in order to cool down.

    I've noticed iOS 7 relies a lot on location services, the purple arrow is almost always active, so I turned a lot of it off in the System Services, Frequent Locations, and Background App Refresh.

    This helped with keeping my iPhone cool.

    If you have Location Services or LTE on, turn one off, and see if your phone doesn't cool down.

    That only happened to me in beta 1, and it seemed to be from Location Services (specifically Weather and Recent Locations).

    Beta 2 and 3 have been fine for me in that regard, and I have everything turned on except bluetooth since I never use it.

    After 7 hours of moderate usage, I'm only down to 74% and my phone has remained cool the entire time.

    Reset all settings. Close all apps. Could be a runaway process in an app or just a screwed up setting.

    Yeah, seems to be something up with location services, I went through and turned it off for individual apps until the arrow went out, then turned most of them back on, it's fine now, and I think, but not sure, I turned all the ones back on that I had on originally. :confused:

    iPhone 5/AT&T here.

    I'm not sure if it happens to everyone, but my phone gets very hot while playing games. Maybe 5 minutes of playing any game my phone gets very hot. It's not like scalding hot, but warm enough that I'm worried.

    Beta 2 and my phone would get hot for no reason.

    Beta 3 and it's normally fairly cool, using games makes it rather hot though. Same with browsing the web, which is the one that makes me slightly more concerned!
