I downloaded iOS 13 today on my 7+, and the back, near the camera is getting very, very hot. My phone did this before on occasion, but I'm just browing settings or the web and it's really hot. My battery is also draining faster than I have ever seen it before. Any ideas?

My 7 Plus did that when I downloaded the GM last week. It returned to normal within 24 hours.
Right now I'm charging, and iMazing is reporting my battery temperature is 74.8.

Your phone is doing a lot of back end stuff. Indexing and the like. Give it some time. Keep it juiced. It will mellow out.

I've been on 13 for quite some time now on my 7 Plus. It's fine.

The main times it gets very warm is if I'm out in the sun, or I'm charging, but was the same as on iOS 12.

Yeah, let it index or whatever overnight, unplug it from the charger, and check to see how your day is tomorrow with regular usage.
