    Hello,

    I have an iPhone 5C 16GB Blue and I'm loving it a lot! But what bothers me , is actually the heating up issue. After a few minutes of using Whatsapp and Twitter , the top part of the back seems to get warm. Not very warm/not very hot. But I'm kind of worried as my Dad one doesn't seems to be in this way . So anybody can tell me whether it's normal? :( Thank you in advance.

    Did it just start doing this, or have you only just noticed it?

    I wonder if you have lots of apps running. Double click on the home button, and close some apps.

    Failing the above, try restarting the device, and use it for a few minutes and see if that makes a difference...

    It doesn't sound normal to me. Albeit, I wonder do you suffer the same effects using your parents device?

    It's normal for iPhones to get warm during usage. They can get hot while playing games, but it shouldn't hot enough to burn your hand. Playstations and Xboxs get pretty warm during usage too. Games are processor-intensive.

    Thanks bro! so it doesn't matter what you are using and how long you're using as long as during usage it's normal to be warm? Can I just ask why doesn't my Dad one gets warm?

    No, the type of usage matters. It gets warmer while playing games than it does while browsing or texting.

    Agree with @Europa. Same thing happened to iPhone 5s last night, it was sharing a video over Photostream. Got hot and then rebooted.

    I had purchased a 5C and the phone was getting VERY hot. Even the plug in the charger. I had only had it for a few days. Went back to T-Mobile and they tried to give me a Samsung charger and I said no. They weren't too helpful and finally gave me a new charger. Phone was still was getting very hot. Went back again and said I either wanted a refund or an exchange and they gave me a new phone. I was within the 14 day period and I guess I just a dud.

    Glad to hear you got it resolved properly.

    They tried to give you a Samsung charger?! What a bunch of idiots.
