Fix: My iPhone XS Max is Overheating, Getting Warm

If your iPhone XS Max is heating up, here is how to fix the problem.

iPhone XS Max is a relatively latest device by Apple, but there have been some issues with it that are reported by its users all over the world. The biggest issue has been the overheating problem. A lot of iPhone XS Max users report that their device is getting hot too quickly. iPhone XS Max problem is reported by many users. Let’s take a look at some ways to investigate and fix this problem.

Backend Updates and Synching

It’s perfectly normal for an iPhone to go a little bit hot when it’s in the process of synching or backing up. In my personal experience, a lot of users have synching process going on at the backend which they aren’t aware of. If you recently restored your iPhone XS Max from iCloud backup, you can expect the device to be a little bit warm. If your device is syncing photos and videos, the device temperature goes up.

Charging Cables

Third-party cables and low-quality charging equipment are also the major causes of the iPhone XS Max heating up problem. Make sure to only use the cable provided in the Apple box when you purchased the phone. If you don’t have that, try to buy a good quality charging cable. Using a bad charging cable would disturb the electrical circuitry of your iPhone, resulting in heating issues.

iPhone Case

If you are using a silicon back cover for your iPhone, change it instantly, as silicon covers commonly cause heating issues. You can also try to remove any cover or casing that you are using for your iPhone and try to use your device for a few hours without any cover. This would help you make sure that your phone casing isn’t the cause.

Apple Support

If none of the above solutions work for you, I’d recommend taking a Genius Bar appointment with Apple. A lot of users were able to identify and fix their iPhone XS Max problems after getting their devices checked with the experts at Apple.

It’s important to note that it’s very easy to overreact in phone heat up issues. Advanced devices like iPhone XS Max are designed to automatically regulate their temperatures. iPhone XS Max also shows a warning screen when its temperature goes beyond the defined limit. If you are playing a game, watching a video or installing apps and updates, it’s normal for your device to heat up for a little while. Keep in mind these points before trying any of the above solutions.
