    Here, there and everywhere
    anyone else with the new 10.5 iPad have an issue with the home button / Touch ID sensor getting hot to touch? Noticed it on mine this evening.

    Wasn’t something I have had happen on my iPhone 6S or iPad Pro 9.7. Device behaving happily otherwise.

    If you're doing anything Intensive, such as gaming or other media, you're likely seeing heat exhibited from the processor and considering the battery is radiating heat as well from extended use. When you say "Hot", like hot To the point where you can't hold it? If so, that would be abnormal.

    Listed below is a link an internal break down of the 10.5 iPad completed by IFixit, so you can at least see where the batteries and Processor is Located near the home button.

    If the issue persists restore and set the iPad up as new...Sometimes that helps. If not get it replaced asap

    I'm having the same problem with a new 2017 iPad Pro 12.9". The bottom third of the iPad, which includes the home button, gets unusually warm. I've been doing a lot of note taking and illustration with the Apple Pencil..I wonder if using the Apple Pencil is somehow the issue. I have never had this problem with a previous iPad, including the generation 1 iPad Pro 12.9".

    As I was setting up my 10.5 (which included an iOS 10 update and restoring from ICloud) the back was getting pretty warm, especially on the Apple Logo.

    Question for all with this problem: Is this on iOS 11 beta or also iOS 10? I have this problem on the beta... from iFixit it looks like it must be display related, there are the new timings controller for the 120hz Display and the touchscreen controllers in this area...

    I installed iOS 11 Beta as a troubleshooting measure, and I still had the issue, really hot on and around the home button. I then got a brand new replacement iPad, and I still have the same problem.

    I have a theory to test. The heat issue is only present when my apple pencil is far away from my ipad, maybe there is a radio connection that goes rouge...

    If you have the heat problem reproduceable and an Apple Pencil, test it by putting the pencil right next to your ipad or disconnect it and see if the problem persists.
    Iam running the latest beta from yesterday and have so far not encountered the heat problem...

    This wouldn't work for me since the heat begins to permeate the home button and surrounding area when I actually use the Apple Pencil. For example, if I'm using Goodnotes, within a minute the heat begins building, and as soon as I'm done writing, the heat begins to dissipate.

    This is interesting. I wonder what happens to the 120Hz and touchscreen controllers when the Apple Pencil is used.
