iPhone 6S Users Reportedly Facing Touch ID Sensor Issues – ‘Burning Hot’ Sensors


Apple has been a company which has been coming out with a large number of updates and upgrades for their users and have been masters of innovation.

The company has been releasing a large number of devices for their users. The latest that has come out from Apple is that of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus.

However, the one thing that has been the unlucky ‘trend’ for the users of the iPhone devices is that these devices have been plagued with some problem or the other.

While there have been issues of the ‘antenna-gate’, or the ‘bend-gate’ and several other problems of some sort, a similar problem has now been spotted occurring in the iPhone 6s and 6s plus devices – heat-gate.

A large number of Apple users have been reporting that their iPhone 6s and 6s plus devices have randomly been heating up. The devices have been going up to alarming temperatures, and many devices have reported to go as high as 109 degrees Fahrenheit, while the maximum ideal temperature for the iPhones is 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to many users, the iPhones have been reaching ‘burning hot’ temperatures, and many of them have complained that the devices are heating up very randomly. Users have said that their devices started getting hot while they were sleeping or working. The devices were not even in active use or being charged when this has happened.

Another interesting note has been that most of this ‘heat’ has been concentrated at the Touch ID sensor of the iPhone 6s device. The touch ID sensor has been getting so hot that many users who have pressed it harder have felt the reddening of their hands.

This has been an alarming cause and a major concern for many users. Social media websites, as well as the Apple forums have been filling up with errors and problems that the users have been facing with respect to the ‘heat-gate’ issue, and Apple needs to take immediate action in order to control this.

The company too, is expected to be working on the problem, and will likely be releasing a fix in another day or two, before the media attention blows this issue out of proportions. Apple’s iOS 9.3 is expected to fully resolve this problem.
