    Don't put it in an oven or leave in direct sunlight in a hot car.

     

    Otherwise, it is very hard to overheat the iPhone, even with using GPS for hours at a time.

    sorry, wrong statement (overheat), actually my phone will heat when surfing the web. Is it because of turn on the LTE?

    Apple has designed the phone to handle many different environments of radio transmission. It's not a problem unless you physically cannot hold the phone because of the heat.

     

    It all depends on the length of the radio transmission time to heat generation.

     

    5 seconds?

    Nope

     

    5 minutes?

    Maybe a few degrees warmer
    Your hands have more heat than a transmitting iPhone at this stage.

     

    5 hours?

    Yes it will be much warmer.

    Overheating/burning hands?

    No
