    Does any one else who has their iPhone6 (4.7") feel its getting warm rather quickly? Only been using it for 30 mins and it feels very warm to touch on the back. My iPhone 5 feels stone cold by comparison.

    Yeah I noticed this. I haven't even really used it yet, it's just plugged into my PC syncing my music over. Worryingly toasty.

    That's no good. Heat kills battery life. Hope 6 plus is better in that regard

    Sadly it's not :/ my Plus got toasty from the get-go, and kinda worries me a little. But I'm hoping its just because it's plugged into via lightening.

    That's a downer :( Hopefully this won't be affected with all units

    Lol. Note 4 ftw!

    Seriously though, the new iPhones are going to get hot! I used the 6 Plus and it got pretty hot on the upper rear casing. A review reported the 6 got even hotter than the 6 Plus so I don't think the outlook is very good for these devices not having heat issues.

    All the reviewed have praised battery life. Even if it gets a bit warm with use it's not battery is effected and I doubt its super hot.

    I haven't really noticed. It got the tiniest bit warm when I was installing 10 apps at once lol, but never "hot" or anything close. Not yet, anyway.

    I definitely wouldn't call it uncomfortably hot. That would be silly. But it does get noticeably warm, and hopefully not to the phones detriment. Also, a case will make you forget about it, anyway.

    The heat usually affects the battery life over time right? If that's the case, I don't think it (battery life) will drop right away. As for the heat, the only way to tell for sure is to play around with one in the store.

    ----------

    Would a case trap in the heat and make the problem even worse?

    guys...it's probably just syncing and first indexing that's making the CPU get hot. Give it a day or two, I'll get cooler :)

    FWIW I played around with one (6 Plus) that was already indexed, and it got hot after some YouTube and playing around with the OS on full brightness and wifi.

    Happens every year, someone mentions something and then everyone starts to notice.

    So what are we going to call this one, i'm betting $20 on "warm-gate"

    iPad 3 gets warm

    Now don't go being all reasonable and stuff in this thread.

    I hope it's a non-issue!

    Its probably a non issue. People getting their new toys, people using their new toys non stop at first, new toy getting a little warm. Thats all.

    Especially if stuff is being loaded into it, it will get warm while syncing all that stuff at once.

    Not only syncing but the phone (just like the Macs) have to index everything you're installing. So for the first few hours people are installing things onto their device, the phone is indexing the stuff that is being installed and people are using the device to test the apps for the larger screens.

    A lot is happening at first, so things might get a little warm.

    It's absolutely normal in the first hours of use.
    Spotlight indexing and other system operations.

    Next days it will be cold.

    True that. It's already cooled down considerably. A sigh of relief...

    I think its a non issue. My galaxy s3 and s4 got pretty hot. My iPad 3 gets really hot when the brightness is above half. Friend brought his galaxy s5 over the other day, and yup, after taking it out of the case, gets nice and hot to. :rolleyes:

    I guess the thinner the phone the more likely you're going to feel the heat.

    Lol it has nothing to do with indexing. All previous iPhones needed to go through the same process and none of them got warm. I hope this isn't as bad as my original htc one which also got warm after just a little use. The metal casing is definitely meant to dissipate heat but as an end user it gets very annoying.
