Summer brings a general rise in temperatures and in these moments having a smartphone that is too hot may not depend only on the climate. What to do if iPhone heats up too much?

It is not a widespread problem, but if you notice that the iPhone is hotter than usual, it is necessary to intervene: it is symptomatic of something wrong and fortunately there are simple operations that could solve the problem and avoid malfunctions.

Hot iPhone means, above all, stress on the processor; it is a phenomenon that occurs when the CPU works intensively, perhaps because there is some app running too much, or a process open in the background. Here is a series of tips to solve this problem.

The first is simply to wait in case you find iPhone overheating immediately after an iOS update. In this case, in fact, it takes several minutes before the entire operating system stabilizes. After the update seems complete, iPhone needs a “break-in” period to resume its normal operation. If, after hours of updating, the terminal is still hot it is good to go to the next advice.

Closing apps in the background can be the easiest way to end overheating. It is possible, in fact, that too many applications, or some malfunctioning ones, generate an excessive workload; to close them, just double-tap the Home button to call up multitasking, followed by a slide upwards on the app you want to close.

Update refreshes the data and the phone

If this does not solve the overheating problem yet, it is possible that some applications installed on the iPhone, often in use, are “bugged”. In this case it is advisable to check for updates available in the App Store. It will suffice, then, to open the Apple digital store directly from the iPhone, consult the updates page and click on the Update button in the individual app, or on the Update all button, so as to keep the applications on your terminal up-to-date.

It is also possible that the iOS version in use is malfunctioning. And then, in this case it is possible to rely on always punctual system updates. Apple realizes quickly if something is wrong with the distributed software release and often manages to release updates to solve in record time.

To keep your terminal up to date, simply open the Settings, General, Software Update panel.

Still in the Settings panel, in the event that the top tips failed to resolve the iPhone overheating problem, the Restore item is available. At first it is advisable to try using the Restore Settings item, which is less invasive and does not delete any content on the device.

If even then iPhone does not cool down over time, it is advisable to choose to Reset content and settings to completely reset the device. This last choice will delete all the data present; it is recommended to make a backup before initializing the terminal.

In the final analysis, if all the paths followed previously did not lead to the expected results, the advice is to contact Apple support and take, where possible, an appointment at an Apple Store.
