As the newly launched Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have hit the store shelves of many countries across the globe, a fresh report said that the bigger version of the brand new Apple smartphone is causing overheating issues for some users.
As it turns out, the overheating problem faced by the Apple iPhone 6s Plus user makes the camera app unusable. According to a complainant on Reddit, the handset was not overused or exposed to heat, when it encountered the overheating issue. The smartphone reportedly jumps to very hot temperatures all of a sudden. In addition, upon launching the camera app, the phone gives out "Flash is disabled" warning message and this is followed by the possible solution i.e. "The iPhone needs to cool down before you can use the flash." The message has a single “OK” button towards the end.
It is worth noting that this particular problem with the iPhone 6s/6s Plus has apparently been reported multiple times. Many users reportedly said that the device is running “noticeably” hotter when compared to other iPhone models. To be specific, the temperature apparently shoots up to 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
In comparison, Phone Arena said that the acceptable temperature for most of the handsets is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. In any case, there is no information available to ascertain if this is an isolated incident to specific batch of iPhone 6s/6s Plus models.
Similar to the iPhone 6s series, HTC also faced overheating issues with the flagship One M9, because of the housed Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor.
