Trying to rule out specific variables with phone heating up. My phone says manufactured in July and no heating issues unless charging, USA version with ESim only

after posting this i realized the poll doesn’t separate each vote so it’ll become a mess in the end. with no actual data that’s usable lol

Let’s clarify. What do you mean “no heating issue unless charging”?

Does that mean “heats up when charging”, or “heats up to the point it stops charging and tells you it needs to cool down”?

Can you edit the post?
i’m not sure how, to make it show the stats i’m wanting to analyze. i was hoping to see a correlation between manufacturing date, and sim vs esim. vs heat / non heat .. but as people select 3 it’ll just be a blob of votes that don’t actually have any meaning

i’ve experienced both, i usually charge with 45w charger so if the phones battery is anything under 40% it’ll draw the full 26.9w until maybe 65% where it’ll gradually taper off to about 7w in which the phone is no longer “hot” but a slight warm.

In the poll list you have “when the phone was made” did you mean phone assembly date? though your photo shows the battery manufacturer date. The phone assembly date and battery manufacturer dates are not necessarily the same.

The processor runs hot and titanium doesn’t absorb heat as good as aluminum. The phones will need to be down-clocked to alleviate this. It’s a hardware issue.

There are too many variables related to the “heating”. “Heating” isn’t the problem but excessive heat is and how long it last. While we have a more powerful processor, it may run a bit hot if using intensive app or handling background activities such as indexing, iCloud sync etc. We need to account for what the user is doing at the time. For example, if it is an app, what app is it and has it been updated/optimized for iOS 17? Some apps can go rogue or not respecting some settings as running in background longer than necessary needed. If it is charging, what charging brick, how many watts, what cable (USB-C has many different type (charging/PD or data cable or both). If it is in calls, what kind of calls such as audio/video on Facebook Messenger, FaceTime, etc on cellular (5G/LTE, signal bars) or WiFi, or WiFi calling? Users need to provide more info and dig deeper to ask the right questions the why, what and how.

New iPhone 15 pro max. A few times per day I can’t even hold it it’s so hot. If I play games or if it’s charging it over heats big time. Like WTF for a $2500 phone.
