    I've been experiencing the same issue. I adopt a rather temporal solution. Whenever my phone overheats, I turn off 3G and close all apps running in the background. This is more like setting the phone to "rest" mode. Frankly I experience the overheating usually when 3G is on, or when i game for long. I hope this helps.

    I'm having trouble with my iphone 5 overheating after talking on the phone. When it does this, and I want to end the phone call, it won't respond to pressing the "end" button. The screen is nonfunctioning at that point, and I must wait until the other person ends the call. Has anyone had this problem?

    So- no BS... I turned off the the ICloud Safari tab, came back to read more of this thread and I could feel the phone cooling off. My battery dropped from 28% to 12% in about 10 mins before, turned off the tab- been on 11% for 30 mins.

    A little screwed up but give it a shot.

    I have this problem both on iPhone 5 and iPad 3 since IOS 7.1 update. The machines overheat, do not sync calendars, very frustrating. I tried to tund off a buch of things, restarted , spent hours and at this point both iPhone and iPad are almost unusable. Apple did a bad upgrade and they don't want to ackowlege it. ,y daughter has the same problem with her iPhone 5

  • netgifted Level 1 (5 points)

    SOLVED! At least on my iPhone 5 and on my iPad 3... it took me one full day and it's 100% solved now. Here is what I did


    1. Deleted all my email accounts (4 Gmail, 2 Outlook and the iCloud account)

    2. When deleting the iCloud account I said to delete all contacts calendars, etc.

    3. Restarted the device

    4. Created the iCloud account (disabled Safari sync and calendars)

    5. Moved my iCloud Calendar to Gmail


    Not only the phone doesn't overheat, the battery life is back to normal and my calendars work once again.


    My thoughts: There is a major conflict with the Calendars on iCloud and the ones on Google accounts. If I activate Calendars on iCloud and Gmail they all disappear (no calendars show on the devices)


    Anyways I hope this hepls someone

    I'll begin by saying I have never had ANY problems with my iphone 5 ( have had it for 1 1/2 yrs)  until last night... had to run into WalMart after work, and as I was  walking down aisle, I noticed a very warm/almost hot sensation in my  pocket; reached in to grab my phone & it was surprised how unusually  warm/almost 'hot' to the touch it was-?! (even after normal extended  use, it's never gotten this warm.) semi panicked, as I immediately  thought of those 'news' stories about someones iphone 'blowing  up'/catching fire in their pocket, etc. In addition to being so warm, it  wouldnt turn on; just displayed a black screen with the Apple logo on  it, that would fade in & out, then 'vibrate' a couple of times...I  pressed and held both the home and sleep/wake button to try &  restart it - the screen then displayed a 'pin-stripe' pattern then shut  down. Finished my shopping, got out to my car & tried to turn it  back on, only to get the black screen with the Apple logo, the  intermittent vibrating, then the logo fading in & out. My 1st  thought was that the battery/charge was very low, but knew when I left  work it was at least 80% charged. Got home & plugged into my  mac/desktop to see if I could get it to sync with did, but  then it would fade out again & not show up in itunes summary/devices  screen - only to pop back up again there a few minutes later. I left it  plugged in & this went on for a good 1/2 hr; I figured for whatever  reason the phone was dead/fried (even though Ive never gotten it wet OR  dropped it in any way shape or form.) Finally checked itunes screen  again before giving up and was able to hit the 'restore iphone' button -  and it worked! Phone restored, redownloaded, etc, and has been (fingers  crossed) good as new all day today... My question is, WTH  happened/caused this issue in the 1st place? Has anyone else ever had  this happen? Should I contact Apple & let them know?? Any feedback  is appreciated.

    The problem was solved for me by disabling Sync for Safari.


    Thanks for good advice

  • FurryJake Level 1 (0 points)

  • Sparky7723 Level 1 (0 points)

    I Found out that the over heating is caused by iCloud. I had the same issue with the back of the phone would heat up To where I could not hold it. I deleted iCloud off my phone and what do you know. No more overheating. I hope that help a lot of you out there.

    my iphone 5s overheats when listening to music sometimes after 2 or 3 songs. i took it in to the apple store they gave me a new phone after seeing there was 5 over heating notifications. but now my new phone does the same thing *** very frustrating. i heard disabling icloud and safari from syncing works is it worth a try?
