    Got iphone 6s 5months ago but now its summer and twice in the last month while my phone was on the phone handle attached to the windshield(while even sunlight was soming on it)

    My iphone was unusable with a black screen saying It needs to cool down before u wan use it...with only the option of ensrgency calling

    Could I possibly get a replacement for this ,should I go to an apple store ,or can I simply ignore the issue?

    After looking at galaxy note,Im kinda spektical and would want it replaced...well the temperatures here dont go above 32-33 degree celsius even!

    I’m in Canada btw!

    Help appreciated
    Thank you

    If you put it under direct sunlight, anything is possible.
    Try not to use the phone under direct sunlight for too long.

    Apple will not replace your iPhone because it turns off when overheated.

    Maybe don't use your phone in direct sunlight, don't use processor intense apps on cellular and don't use your phone in the car, in direct sunlight. This isn't a defect, this is a user who isn't careful with their device.

    Get an AirFrame. You attach it to your air vent so even in direct sunlight the phone does not overheat. It's regularly 100F+ in the summer, and my phone has not turned off once due to heat.

    You pretty much are baking your phone. I don't think it's a good idea. Nor would Apple.

    I baked my phone in the oven and it overheated. Is this a defect?

    A few years ago I had to use my car all summer with no air conditioning. My iPhone displayed the same behavior. It's perfectly normal. No replacement warranted or necessary.
