What's This?

Even though iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus sales soared immediately after their launch, Apple users witnessed problems. App Slicing, Ad Blocker, iOS 9 and now Touch ID: almost each and every feature the latest iPhones were in the news for has disappointed Apple fans one war or the other.


When iPhone users found out that their Touch ID Sensor is overheating, they turned to Twitter as well as Apple’s Support Forum to complain about the issue. Apple has not yet responded to the complaints, but we hope they will. Luckily, not every Apple Touch ID in iPhones is having this problem.

Justine Ezarik, an American comedian, tweeted on October 5, “Hmm… So I woke up and the Touch ID button on my phone is so hot it’s burning my finger and won’t turn on.” She also mentioned that the device was not even plugged in.

Another user, Michael Schultz, complained on Twitter, saying that his iPhone has turned off and Touch ID is too hot to touch. Following the tweets, reputed news websites like Mashable and Business Insider reported the issue, spreading the news at lightning speed.

Contradictory to these complaints, users whose Touch IDs are working fine cannot stop themselves from praising this advanced feature on social media platforms. Twitter user Epsy tweeted, “Shout out to Touch ID for making life easier one step at a time.” Another iPhone 6S user said this feature works better on the latest device than on iPhone 5S. According to him, you hardly need to touch the sensor for it to work.

For now, it looks like a few faulty devices have hit the market and are creating this overheating problem. Pulling these devices out of the market should solve the issue. Let us wait for Apple to dive in and inform us about its next step.
