Apple iPhone 6s overheating for some users: camera flash won't work until phone cools down
posted by Victor H. / Sep 27, 2015, 7:54 AM
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.

Really? All the S6 models and the Note 5 use 14NM with no issue. I guess Apples cores are to big. Samsung use small.cores as I just learned recently on PA. To bad because the jailbreak erst probably were ready to jailbreak ios9 and. Own they have to wait for the 9.1 peach which will throttle back the CPU. Seems weird that the chip would get so hot at only 1.79GHZ. I would expect it at 2Ghz and above.

This has nothing to do with Samsung, Samsung provided the RAM and manufactured their SOC, they had no part in the camera. It's more than likely related to the camera software; it's the same on the Xperia Z3, if I use its stock camera app it overheats quickly, but if I use Google's camera app, I have no issues.

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

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.

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.

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 2000http://www.anandtech.com/show/
