Is it just me or does anyone notice the iPhone 5 running iOS 7 beta geting hot when watching video?
I just finished watching a 30 minute video clip and when I picked up my iPhone it felt extra warm. I first noticed this couple of weeks ago. I wonder if anyone else had that same problem.

Those 2 should take care of it.

Maybe your iPhone gets turned on by the type of videos you watch. Cut back on the ******* vids buddy.


j/k


But seriously, I haven't had the issue since beta 1. That usually tends to happen when playing graphic intensive games... don't know what it is in your case.

Not at all. The only time it seems to get hot is when its charging and its in the sunlight.

Yes. If you fire up Xcode are you seeing repeated errors in the console?

Yes it used to but I haven't noticed it much anymore. Not to say that it doesn't, just haven't noticed

----------

When that happens I usually turn it off until it cools down! Mines a brand new iPhone 5 , don't want to fry my baby :)

I used to have the heat issue on my iPhone 5 with iOS 7.
I managed to cure this by turning off some of the location/system services.

I used to have this issue, I managed to sort it out by turning off some of the location/system services and turned my phone off for about 5 mins, when I turned it back on it has cured.

I do not have that issue unless I am trying to upload a photo on 3G (iPhone 4S here) and it takes forever. I also turn off many location services that are unnecessary to me though.

Hmmm I had quite a few location services on which I turned off but it seems to get hot when playing music or something...
