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?

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.
