Info my iPhone X
Before I received my iPhone X, My parents (Sheila Archer & John Norman Archer) bought iPhone X on November 8 2017. I received my iPhone X for my birthday 2018 (February 23 2018). I erased my iPhone 7 Plus (256GB/Black/At&t) when my iPhone X restore complete. I given my iPhone 7 Plus (256GB/Black/At&t) to Ella Archer after I received my iPhone X.

Own iPhone X of Archer family:

  • Sheila Archer
  • John Norman Archer

My iPhone X specs:
  • 256GB
  • Space Gray
  • At&t

Problem with my iPhone X
My iPhone X is heat up when I using it. I can't get my iPhone 7 Plus (256GB/Black/At&t) from Ella Archer! I can't returning my iPhone X! I think John Norman Archer's iPhone X and Sheila Archer's iPhone X have this problem.

I'm disappointed.

Updated - my iPhone X is still currently iOS instead of beta

The only time my phone heats up like crazy is when Fortnite is running (and on my old iPhone X, due to hardware/software issue)

So why don’t you take it to the Apple store it should still be under full warranty.

Also OP, what do you mean by overheating? Do you get a message to say it’s hot, because that’s what it’ll do if it overheats and needs to shut down. Or does it just feel hot, in which case that’s normal with high CPU function.

I’m on the Apple betas and whenever it’s closer to an update or when a software update is available my phone does get warm. It’s been the last few IPhones that have done this. You are correct , it does do that sometimes.
