Overheat since iOS6?

Overheat since iOS6?

Been noticing very hot back on 4S since update, anyone else (still have the OLD model)?

 

I had been listening to music last night in car, unplugged (not in charger) from radio as usual, but noticed after an hour on the table, it had not dimmed the screen (mine is set to after 1 min.).

 

Picked it up and was amazed at how hot it was!  iTunes was still open with the last song played, but paused.

 

Battery life has been horrible since the update. 

 

Can Apple test the battery to see if it's holding a charge?

It does run a little warmer than usual and as for the battery it might be but not enough for me to notice so far.

The battery does noticibly go down faster for me as well. I have not experienced the overheat issue though, even while listening to TuneIn Radio app.

Thanks for the replies...guess this means a forced upgrade, again. Smiley Sad  Our old processors are having a hard time.

 

I mostly leave mine on all the time, but with the overheating, I'll have to be more careful.

 

If I get an answer for testing at the Apple Store, I'll report back.  First, they'll never admit this is a problem, LOL!  Been there, done that!

Listening to a radio app has always caused the phone to heat up.

Re: Overheat since iOS6?

I never do that, and mine will heat up a LOT on 4G.  I keep 4G and Wi-Fi turned off, and all the Locate apps. 

 

It's been doing okay, today, so maybe just turning it off for a while refreshed its *memory*.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Overheat since iOS6?

I still plan on going in to see what they say.

 

Are battery replacements free under Apple Care?

 

Maybe they'll give me a new iP5, on backorder. Smiley Mad

Re: Overheat since iOS6?

They should be covered I believe. I remember when I went to fix a '09 MacBook and they replaced battery and all for free. Smiley Tongue Might depend on the case.

They replaced my phone!

 

Perfect and clean, but couldn't duplicate the issue.  They noted several apps crashing, so took a photo of diagnostics and sent it to myself.  One was the Uverse app!  Uninstalled the culprits and reinstalled.

 

Hardest part was driving home without music, address book, or apps.
