What's This?

Ever since iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been released, the devices have been in the news for not-so-right reasons. iPhone 6S users are seen turning to Twitter and Apple forums with complaints of Touch ID fingerprint sensors turning surprisingly hot.


JazzieFayy, an iPhone user, wrote on the Apple Support Communities forum, “I have had my phone since Friday, and this morning when I woke up the home button was burning hot and the screen is just black. I went to bed with it working just fine last night, plugged it in to charge, and now it won’t work. Nothing else is hot, not even the charging port, just the home button is on fire. I have had the phone unplugged for an hour and the button is still on fire.” On Twitter, Justine Ezarik, an American comedian, tweeted saying that the Touch ID button on her phone was so hot when she woke up that her finger was burning. She also complained that her device was not turning on.

While Touch IDs of some phones are overheating even when devices were not used for hours, some people say that holding the Home button for 10 seconds or more is causing the issue. After considering all the complaints, the conclusion is that there is no specific reason behind the overheating.

iPhone users have also faced other issues with Apple’s latest devices like the sound of speakers distorting when the volume is turned high. Other issues are notifications not popping up when headphones were connected, and improper working of Safari when trying to open webpages using 3D Touch.
