If its only happened the one time, I wouldn't be too concerned. It is a small computer and itches do happen. Now if it keeps doing it, then I would be concerned.
BYW: which phone?

iPhone 4. It was fine since I posted and just went black screen. I had to do a restart. I put a screen protector in today. I wonder if it was the liquid. I also dropped it a couple times the past few days. Hopefully I didn't screw it up.

Sounds like it over heated. Was it warm to the touch?

Nope. Not warm at all. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. It's fine now. There have been a couple other odd things since the upgrade too but I forgot what they were. Not significant enough to remember.

I wouldn't worry about it. iPhone restarting itself now and then isn't uncommon. How often do you do a hard reset and/or power on and off?

Here is my suggestion. Run your phone nearly down. 5% perhaps. Open task manager and close out all apps. Do a hard reset. Charge up to 100% do another hard reset.
Your phone will be so snappy you won't recognize it.
I close all apps and do two hard resets back to back before putting my baby on the charger for the night.
Every night.

Hopefully not, but liquid and drops on an iDevice are usually not a good thing!
