    Well yes... It's using GPS, data, and probably a lot of the CPU/GPU, etc.

    That's what I figured, but I wasn't finding comments when googling, so I thought I'd ask :)

    Plus if you consider that you're outside and the screen is at full brightness, it all adds to the phone getting warm. My iPhone 6 gets a little warm after an extended hunt. ;)

    In my case iPhone 6s Plus running "iOS10.0 b2" no problem.
    It has been around 1 hour by now and there is no signs of heating.

    That means that you have more fire Pokemon on your team than other types.

    Try catching a Lapras to reduce your phone's temperature.
