How to Fix Overheating and Battery issues in iPhone 5S

6,183 views

This morning I received the new iPhone 5S I restored the phone via iCloud backup and reinstalled my apps. It took me 30-40 minutes. Brand new iPhone 5S overheated and battery was dropped down to 40% .  I closed all the apps that were open, locked it, and did put it in to charge. When the battery was at 100% I started using my phone again but same thing happened again, phone was overheated and battery was also down to 40% in 30 minutes. Any reason why this happened?

Few people have reported their iPhone 5S overheating. This is usually related to the battery and goes hand-in-hand with rapid battery drain. In rare cases it could be caused by a hardware fault, but it’s more likely to be iOS 7 or a specific app. There are a couple of things worth trying to identify and fix the issue.

Solution

If you pay close attention to what you are doing when it next overheats. You might be able to identify the app or service causing the problem.

  1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button to reboot your iPhone 5S  
  2. Backup and restore your iPhone 5S and then be choosy about what you reinstall on it.

If problem persists then you have to go to an Apple Store to make sure there’s no hardware fault.
