iphone 4 overheating hardware or firmware ?
- date: November 21, 2011
I had my iphone 4 since August 2011, it came with 4.3.3 ios installed from the box. after 1 month, in the afternoon, the phone overheated suddenly to an extent that it was harmfull to carry with my hands, the battery was draining insanely and after gathering some tips, i decided to perform a clean restore what forced me to update to 4.3.5 ios. and the problem was fixed. in October, ios 5 was released and i updated my device to the new firmware. Yesterday, i was downloading an application from the app store when i noticed that my iphone started to heat rapidly and the battery started draining too. so i decided to repeat the same fix that saved me before and performed a software update what updated my phone the the new ios 5.0.1 firmware but my problem persisted. my iphone now is in a miserable situation. whenever i turn it on, it starts to heat very rapidly reaching almost more than 70 degrees celcius. whenever i plug it into charger it heats, whenever i plug it into my pc it heats,
