Question: iPhone X Overheating & Battery Draining
Has anyone experienced the iPhone X overheating & the battery draining?
Specs: iPhone X 64 GB Version: 11.2.6
I believe the issue started 2 days ago. I woke up yesterday morning and the phone was dead (I didn't have it charging overnight, but I have never had it die overnight as of yet.) I plugged it in while I got ready, and it turned on and began charging. I charged it in my car, and then I charged it at work up until about 60% then I needed to use it.
I had it in my hands for a few minutes, and I could feel the case getting hot. I took the case off, and the phone was so hot I couldn't even hold it in my hand, but it wasn't shutting off, so I manually shut the phone off. I left it off for about 15 minutes, and turned it back on and it was still warm but no where near as hot as it was before.
Ever since this incident, the battery has been draining very fast. I fully charged it overnight, and within 15 minutes the phone had already drained 30% of the battery. Another issue I have noticed is that my data connection is showing as "4G" in places that I have always been able to get an "LTE" connection.
I have tried doing a hard reset twice, but it doesn't appear to have helped. I have shut the phone down several times normally. I updated to iOS 11.2.6 the day before this all started happening. I am thinking about wiping the phone and setting it up from scratch, but I don't know if that will help anything.
