    So my Iphone 6 runs warm after a few minutes of social media with wifi on. Such as Instagram, 9gag, Pinterest etc. Is this normal?

    Hi,


    I've not noticed any unusual warming up of my iPhone 6 plus whilst using Twitter / Facebook or pretty much anything else.

    Can you clarify "Warm"

    The iPhone will warm up as it's working and from the heat from your hand.

    Try resetting it by On the iPhone hold down the Power & Home button together until  Logo shows then release both & the iPhone will reset

    If your concerned then book an appointment at your most local  Genius Bar.

    When I put my cheeks to the top front corner of the screen I can feel some heat. Tried formatting and resetting but still no fix.

    If you're viewing videos, I wonder if that could account for the increase in temps.

    If you're connecting via cellular and don't have a very good signal, then that can make a phone run warm. Do you think that's the case?

    Tasks often run in the background and use CPU, if they're busy enough and use enough CPU cycles then the phone will warm up a little until the activity reduces again. You might want to look into what apps you have enabled to run in the background via Settings/General/Background App Refresh and maybe Automatic Downloads in Settings/iTunes and App Store too. If you don't really need an app to refresh itself in the background when you're not using it then switch it off.
