    Good afternoon, as of late or since iOS 11.3 to be exact I have noticed my phones becoming warm when using almost any apps, not hot just warm. Apps I notice it most with are, Snapchat, Tinder, POF, Meetme... (Sorry single) and others such as safari.

    Does anyone else have this? Is it normal?

    Should be normal. Increased CPU usage draws more energy from the battery, this energy is converted to heat which is what you're sensing.

    They can become pretty hot when doing pretty intensive things, it's nothing to worry about unless it starts glowing red - but it would automatically shut off long before then.

    You'd be surprised what can be intensive, could just be an app bug or old implementation etc. Basically could be anything, but the cause is the CPU consuming energy.

    You’d be surprised at how much data and CPU intensive Snapchat is.

    Today I was just browsing ATT website, and listening to music in my vehicle and I could start to feel the phone is that normal @AppleHaterLover @New_Mac_Smell
