anyone having Overheating Issues with their iPhone 5 from charging ?
Me. I have it currently syncing through iTunes and it feels pretty hot.
Noticed that too, hasn't happened all the time, I noticed it while on a 30 min call.
Do you mean: "the phone is getting warm."? or do you mean "The phone is shutting down due to exceeding the thermal tolerances" (i.e., the phone shuts down and flashes you an overheating sign).
I would imagine with an aluminum back, the phone will be warmer to the touch than past phones due to the better conductivity of the aluminum (that is, it will conduct heat away from the components faster and to your skin).
I meant it gets noticeably warm to the touch.
Exactly! Just because its getting warm doesn't mean there is something wrong...
Just like a car, it heats up when its being used or any other electronics, the only difference between the iPhone 5 and a car is that a car has fans to cool it down.
No but this thing charges ridiculously fast.
It's not a good thing, none of my previous iPhones have done this.
Glass is a better insulator than aluminum... Guessing the aluminum is transferring the heat better. If it's not thermally shutting itself down, I wouldn't worry about. Apple likes their electronics hot case in point, Macbook Pro.
I've had this problem with literally every iPhone I've owned(all of em), it's normal. People bring this up every year thinking something is wrong, but there isn't.
Especially a Macbook Pro!!! LOL
No big deal.
This guy knows what's up
Noticed that too. Otherwise it isn't getting any warmer than my iPhone 4 did.
my iphone 5 certainly gets warm while its charging and im messing around with it but by no means is it "over heating"
I was shocked how cold mine was. lol. no joke.
