Apple iPhone 6s overheating for some users: camera flash won't work until phone cools down

The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are already out on sale in most Western markets, and this is the first weekend for users to try out the new devices and share their experience.

Surprisingly, we are seeing the first reports of a weird overheating issue in the camera app appear on Reddit. The problem seems to appear out of the blue, with no heavy use or exposure to extremely hot temperatures prior: once you open the camera app, you get a "Flash is disabled" warning saying "The iPhone needs to cool down before you can use the flash."

Is your new iPhone running hot?

This comes after multiple reports confirmed that the new iPhone 6s is running noticeably hotter than earlier models, reaching temperatures of up to 102 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average for most phones stands at around 90.

Is this an isolated incident? So far, there is not all that much data to say it is, but this will definitely be one issue we'll be looking forward to testing out in the very near future. Have you experienced any overheating issues with the new iPhone 6s? Let us know in the comments right below.

Still better than SD810 and Exynos processor.
A9 >>> Exynos 7420 > Snapdragon 810.

But A9 will compete against 8890 and 820.

7420 and 810 are available from March, whereas A9 is just released. Can't compare.

Exynos 7420:
Single core:
1520
Multi core:
5478

A9:
Single core:
1811
Multi core:
4577

Both scores combined: Exynos 7420 (6998) A9 (6388).

CPU goes to Exynos but GPU to A9. Moral of the story-you are drinking kool-aid.

Intel 14nm > Samsung 14nm/TSM 16nm. Should have gone Intel!

Yep my bad its 2460 single core and 4312 multi core (6772). Still less than Exynos.

Stop fabricating scores here A9 single core score is 2500, which is 90% higher than Exynos (1300). Let's give Exynos benefit of the doubt and say multi core is 5100 that's mentioned by lot of users (PA got 4404) and A9 is 4423 on IPhone 6s Plus, that is only 15% higher, which can really be classified as 'close' to the score.

You're just butthurt that you cannot afford to get one for yourself, overheating never been my issues as I will get another one anyway :)

Anyway, really enjoying one week trip to California :) manage to queue a pair of rose gold iPhone 6s and 6s plus, with 128GB version. As well as rose gold Apple watch with black band :)

Also these are the non-apple stuff I bought this week :)

Why would you combine them ?? single and multi isnt something you sum..

Multicore score gives you the total CPU performance , thats it...

singlecore is important if you are sttill living in 2000

feature with the earlier SD 810 chip not Sony, the same problem is noticed with all phones using the earlier variants. Best you get yourself informed properly
