How to Fix Overheating Issue on iPhone 14 Series?

iPhone 14 models were announced at the Far Out event on September 7

Apple recently released the iPhone 14 series, which includes four models— iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Since then, many users have purchased these iPhones. And as with every new iteration of the iPhone, the iPhone 14 also has some bugs and issues. One of those issues is the overheating issue. This guide will discuss the issue in detail and give tips on how to fix the problem.

iPhone 14 users are facing an overheating issue when using their devices. The problem is most commonly occurring when using the camera or charging, but some users have reported that the issue occurs when using other apps.

Many users have voiced their concerns about the same on Twitter, Reddit and other platforms. Some users say that their devices are overheating during gaming sessions, while others face the issue while charging the device.

8 Ways to Fix iPhone 14 Overheating Issue

While the overheating issue may seem to be caused by iOS 16, it is untrue. Other iPhones (iPhone 13 and earlier) on the same software version are running fine without overheating issues. This indicates an underlying hardware issue exclusive to the iPhone 14 series.

While Apple is investigating the issue, we recommend users try the following workarounds to fix this issue:

Solution 1: Force Restart your iPhone 14

You may need to restart your device if you’re having overheating issues on your new iPhone 14. It is one of the most straightforward solutions to fix any problem. Restarting your iPhone will fix any software issues causing it to overheat. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Press and hold the Power and Volume Up or Volume Down buttons simultaneously until the power menu appears.
  2. Drag the slider to the right to power off your iPhone.
  3. Finally, press and hold the power button until you see the Apple logo.
  4. Your iPhone will restart, and hopefully, the overheating issue will be resolved.

If you are still experiencing the issue, you can try force restarting your iPhone 14:

  1. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
  2. Then, press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
  3. Press and hold the Power button and release it once you see the Apple logo on your screen.

Wait a few seconds for the force restart to complete, and the overheating issue should be resolved. Jump to the following solution if the problem persists.

Solution 2: Stop Resource Hungry Apps

Another way to fix the overheating issue on the new iPhone 14 is to stop resource-hungry apps. Apps constantly running in the background can cause your phone to heat up, so it’s essential to close them when you’re not using them.

You can do this by double-tapping the home button and then swiping up on the app preview to close it.

Additionally, you can go to the Settings app and then “Battery” to see which apps use the most battery life. If you see an app that uses a lot of battery, you can disable it or uninstall it to help reduce overheating and improve your battery life.

This will help to reduce the amount of power your phone is using and should help to keep it from overheating. You can also try setting your phone to Low Power Mode, which will help to conserve power and keep your phone from overheating. Also, keep your phone in a cool, well-ventilated area to help dissipate the heat.

Solution 3: Disable Raise to Wake

You may also want to disable Raise to Wake to fix the overheating issue on your iPhone 14. This feature can cause your iPhone 14 to overheat, mainly if you use it frequently. It can also prevent your battery from lasting as long as it should. Here’s how you can disable Raise to Wake on your iPhone 14:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Now tap Display & Brightness.
  3. Then, toggle the “Raise to Wake” setting OFF.

This will help to reduce the amount of heat your iPhone produces when it’s not in use, and it will also help to preserve your battery life. However, if you continue to have overheating issues, you can also try the following solution.

Solution 4: Turn off Background App Refresh

Turning off Background App Refresh is also an effective way to fix overheating issues on your iPhone. This feature allows apps to update their content in the background but can also lead to excessive battery drain and overheating. In this case, you can turn off the feature for less critical apps to cool down your iPhone.

To turn off Background App Refresh:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap General and then Background App Refresh.
  3. Then, select the apps that you want to disable the feature for. Make sure the feature is enabled for your essential apps.

After making this change, you should notice an improvement in your iPhone 14’s battery life and overall performance.

Solution 5: Install Pending updates

If your iPhone 14 is overheating, it’s likely because pending updates need to be installed. Updates generally come with new features and bug fixes that improve the system’s stability. Apple has released two updates for the iPhone 14 series as of 29 September 2022. Make sure that you are on the latest version of iOS, and here’s how:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Now, tap Software Update.
  4. Install any pending updates available for your iPhone. To install, tap Download & Install.
  5. Restart your iPhone once the update is installed.

Once up to date, your iPhone 14 should no longer overheat.

Solution 6: Switch from Beta to Stable

If you’re running the iOS 16 beta on your iPhone 14, you may have noticed that your device tends to overheat more quickly than usual. This is a common issue with beta software and is to be expected. However, if you’re annoyed by dealing with overheating, you can always switch back to the stable version of iOS 16.

Solution 7: Reset All Settings

If you’re still encountering overheating issues on your iPhone 14, it is possible that the problem can be fixed by resetting all settings. Doing this will not delete all your iPhone data, but it will reset all of your preferences and settings. These preferences and settings also include saved WiFi networks, passwords, Mobile network settings, and VPN and APN settings. To reset all settings on your iPhone 14, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Next, tap Transfer or Reset iPhone and then Reset.
  4. Tap Reset All Settings.

After your iPhone 14 has reset all settings, it should no longer overheat. If the problem persists, you may need to reset your iPhone or get it replaced.

Solution 8: Reset your iPhone

If you are facing an overheating issue on your iPhone 14, you can try a few things to fix the problem. One of the last things you can do is reset your iPhone to its factory settings. This will delete all your data and settings, so back up your iPhone first. If you’re unsure how to factory reset your iPhone, don’t worry— we’ll walk you through the process below.

But before you proceed with resetting your iPhone, you can try the following workarounds as well:

  • Enable Low Power Mode.
  • Disable 5G temporarily.
  • Turn off the Always-On Display on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
  • Turn on Auto-Brightness.
  • Reduce Screen Motion.

If the workarounds mentioned above don’t fix the issue, you can proceed with resetting your iPhone:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Next, go to Transfer and Reset iPhone >> Reset.
  4. Once the reset is done, you can set up your iPhone with your Apple ID and start using it again. Hopefully, the overheating issue should be resolved.
