Hi, a few days ago I had some issues with my iPhone 6 and Apple gave me a replacement unit. Now, when I wake up and get my phone (left it charging over night) it starts doing weird things.. First, the Wi-Fi logo stays gray (like when you have no signal) and wont go away if you turn it off through the control center. Then if I try to open Settings, the app freezes on the white splash screen and never opens, if I try going back and opening another app nothing happens, the app's icon gets gray and thats it (see when you touch an icon how it gets gray for a millisecond, it stays like that).
Turning off and on the phone doesn't solve this, it turns on again, it does some weird graphical glitch when I open the control center for the first time and then it continues to fail to open any apps. After restarting, if I lock the phone and try to unlock it it will show the desktop background (not the lock screen one).
A hard reset solves the issue and it only happen twice (in the last 2 days) after leaving the phone plugged all night.
I don't know if it's a software or hardware issue.. I sure hope it's a software issue because I'm abroad and wont be back in the states for at least a month.
Now I will try to back up my phone, do a fresh iOS install and restore from the backup.. Lets see how that goes.

Thats a hardware you should never leave your iPhone plugged in not even a single minute after it is 100% now you have learned your lesson

I always plug my device even when the battery is 100%. No such issue seen in my experience. Or maybe I always set desktop and lock screen wallpaper to the same one.

That's not how it works. It's perfectly fine to do that and nothing will happen (and if something does then there's some issue with the device itself essentially).

This part of what you said isn't really true:

Well...this happened to me on my 4S i left it on charge for the night and when i woke up my 4S's performance was ****ed and so was the battery it was glitching and hard resting helped for 5-10 mins but it started glitching again so thats why i think that may have caused the issue

Well, that basically sounds like an issue with your device, and not an issue with leaving iPhones in general on the charger after 100% is reached.

Mentioning it in a way that references your anecdotal experience where you hypothesized that it was behind it all in some way, that would certainly be fine, but making general blanket statements about all phones as if it's a fact, that's different and just isn't true.

Update: Now my phone is having some weird screen glitches.. This phone has 90 days of warranty and I wont be back in the states until at least May, so I'm screwed...

I dont think so. Ive been charging iPhone overnight for years. I suggest him to send it back to manufacture.
