Apple’s latest iPhones, the 6S and 6S Plus suffer from an overheating issue. The sales record breaking devices appear to have issues with the camera flashlight. When the phone detects (or think it detects) a too high temperature the phone blocks usage of the flashlight till it has had time to cool down. The overheating appears to take place even by minimal or regular usage.
It’s unknown whether all new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus devices suffer from this issue or that it is limited to a certain batch. Nevertheless, the devices seem to become hotter than previous models. The device can reach temperatures of up to 39 degrees Celsius ( 102 Fahrenheit ), which is significantly higher than the average temperature of around 32 degrees Celsius (90 Fahrenheit) for other phones.
It’s not the first time smartphones suffer from overheating issue, phones with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC were also found to overheat quickly.
It’s unknown whether the 6S and 6S Plus issue is caused by hardware or software.
