    Mine's not even warm.
    It was warm when I restored from iTunes, after half hour or so, it's gone.

    My 6S Plus has been overheating since the initial setup process. I noticed immediately that it would only allow brightness to go up to 50% when it got too hot. I just received a temperature warning before coming to the forum to see if anybody else is having issues. Looks like an exchange may be in order, which is a shame because the rest of the phone has no issues.

    You probably have TSMC 16nm A9 chip.

    Phone has been cool even after using it for over an hour on a phone call. My 6+ would warm up but no so far with my 6S+.

    Does one CPU perform better than the other? I'm on the phone with Apple now, trying to get a replacement.

    EDIT: Just used a CPU identifier and I have the Samsung s8000. iPhone 6S Plus 128GB.

    I don't think there is any evidence of thermal tests yet. I wouldn't jump the gun just yet in terms of trying to cherry pick the soc. Clearly your overheating is a viable issue that Apple should be able to quickly offer an exchange for. I do believe their diagnostics tests will tell them when a phone is overheating.

    It's more likely that Samsung will run cooler, but Apple should replace your iPhone anyway if it's running too hot.

    I hope Samsung is found to run warmer so we can have awesome threads claiming Samsung has rigged their hardware to run poorly in order to screw Apple.

    This may very well be the case, Apple is sending a replacement for my brothers hot running 6S.

    Armchair engineering? On what possible basis is this assumption made on?

    Just spent TWO HOURS on the phone with Apple. They ran diagnostics and confirmed that something is wrong with the phone, but still want me to go to a retail store. They gave me the option of sending a replacement but will need to put a temporary hold for two phones on my card, which is not going to happen considering that's about $2k.

    Earliest appointment I was able to get around here was on Friday. I may just walk in to see what my options are. Hopefully a new phone can ben sent to the store and I can swap them. Sort of ridiculous how this is being handled.

    They have to get a hold as it is the only way they know they are going to get their money back if you do not return. Has always been the standard.

    I'm probably going to walk into the Apple store when it opens tomorrow. I'll probably get to see somebody pretty quickly. Also, the store may get more stock to replace my model without going through warranty.

    I called the store. It's definitely going to be new, even if it's from the Genius Bar. They would order a new unit to the store.
