Help, iPhone 7 getting hot

Forum
Hardware and Accessories

Hi folks its Carlos again,
Have any of you had problems with iPhone 7 getting warm while charging.
I have mine in an otter box defender case and I noticed the first time I was charging it it got warm in the case.
I was also down loading a ICloud back and lots of emails at the same time.
Last night I was listen to Netflix and charged it and it also got warm.
Is this normal?
It might even be getting hoter but with the otter box defender case on it its hard to tell how much.
Thanks again.
Carlos

well it depends on how warm it gets, if it's just a little warm it's a result of charging while you're making it do other stuff and it's not too worrying. However if it's really hot the best thing to do is turn it off, let it cool and charge again, and don't keep it near warm surfaces like your own body during intensive use. hth
