iOS 7 beta 3 fix for hot iPhone 5, 4S

#

The latest rumors have predicted that iOS 7 beta 3 will release next week on Monday, so this will be a perfect time to see if the current overheating problems are fixed for iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S running iOS 7 beta.

Apple iPhone 5 vs. 4S for iOS 7 issues — our in house developer has been testing iOS 7 beta 1 and 2 with the Phones Review apps since the first beta launched. To date, they have found both the iPhone 5 and 4S to experience a number of problems overall that include the phone crashing to an Apple logo and both devices get very hot.

iphone-5-and-4s-getting-hot-ios-7

We touched on the iOS 7 beta 3 update being needed to fix iPhone 5, 4S crashing problems but it seems a fix is also needed for both handsets getting hot. We know the iPhone has had its share of overheating in the past, but we hadn’t experienced this on the iPhone 5 like we did with 4S.

The current generation runs a lot cooler than 4S, but on iOS 7 beta 2 both devices run very hot when on phone calls, watching videos, using GPS and with a number of other tasks.

If you are on a phone call with iPhone 5 and 4S running iOS 7 beta 2, then the phone can get uncomfortably hot if touching your ear. We are hoping this problem is fixed when iOS 7 beta 3 launches, so we will be sure to test this update on both the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.

Has your iPhone 5 or 4S been running extra hot on iOS 7, or even with iOS 6? Let us know in the comments and we’ll check with our developer next week if iOS 7 beta 3 releases, which really needs to fix this issue and the crashing problems that continually happen randomly.

    Apple have been trading and resting in past successes.The iPhone 5 gets hot,the battery life is terrible ,the screen is too small,it crashes too often .Apple need a game changer if they hope to get back to the top because they aren’t there any more!

    iPhone 5, running iOS 7-2, and I’ve been experiencing both symptoms of my phone crashing, leading back to the Apple logo, and getting hot when performing tasks. Also been experiencing getting kicked back to the springboard from apps quite a bit. Not sure if it’s an app issue running on 7, or an actual 7-2 issue, but it happens with any and all apps, some more frequent than others. Beta 3 come quick! And with solutions!

    I have been crashing regulary hit recovery is rather quick. I have not been experiencing the heat up you mention, and I tend to use the GPS, phone and streaming a lot. overall I have been pleased. iTunes Radio has a while until it’s mature though.

    I’ve experienced the overheating, but mostly when playing music via Bluetooth. Phone calls and most apps are fine; maybe a bit warmer than iOS 6, but not hot. Crashing is minimal, maybe a spontaneous reboot once a day plus an occasional app crash back to Springboard. Music player is screwy though, and song info/album art often doesn’t update when the song changes.

    I too have 7-2 on it and it heats up really bad and drains battery life like crazy. Also, when low on battery, if it crashes (which happens quite often), the touchscreen becomes unresponsive; only way of getting it to work is to charge it. Apps crash a lot too, but I think this is because they’re not ios 7 compatible yet. So, yes, beta 3 can’t come soon enough.

    ios 7 beta 2. No heat issues, but have got the crash to apple logo often. And if I don’t close down background apps the battery drains very quickly when not in use. At least I see a marked improvement when I do close background apps.

    I guess it depends on the usage and workload you throw at it, when I multitask the battery does drain like crazy and I get a LOT of crashes and reboots. I also had noticed the overheating, but had not related it to the update, thanks for the heads up. Can’t wait for beta 3 and final versions, my iPhone has been getting a lot of love from Android users since I installed beta.

    My iPhone 5 running iOS 7 gets warm when running a number of apps, but got downright HOT the other day when running a GPS Map app. In addition to getting on, the battery went from 44% to 5% in just over an hour.
    The iPhone continues to overheat, but I haven’t experienced the repaid battery drain again.

    Yep, my iPhone 5 was already susceptible to getting hot but that’s one of the sacrifices for the bigger screen and thinner design and not having the extra layer of glass that the 4S has on the back.

    With iOS 7 Beta 1 & 2 I noticed it a bit, I live in San Diego so the weather doesn’t contribute to the issue. I recently went to Lake Powell on the Utah/Arizona border where it was 90 to 100 degrees daily and I was using my phone mostly for camera and music functions on Airplane Mode because there is no reception out there. MAJOR heat issues in that weather, for obvious reasons. Oh, I have a black iPhone as well, so that contributed to the case attracting a lot of heat.

    My phone NEVER overheated or shutdown so that was impressive and the battery life was fine, mostly because I was on Airplane Mode and wasn’t drawing power to stay connected to any networks.

    Back home in SD, I noticed the battery drain increased a bit, but I tend to keep my phones running pretty lean no matter what so it wasn’t a huge issue for me. I’m sure once the full release is optimized this won’t be an issue.

    Overall, I’ve been pleased with iOS 7 and it has me using my phone more because of the new features and it just looks great. Beta 2 is definitely smoother, less chop and Apple Logo mini reboots. I have it on my main phone so it’s a risk, but worth it in my opinion. I’m anxious to try out Airdrop as I’m the only person I know who’s on iOS 7 so I’ll have to wait until full release to drop to my contacts, etc.

    I have a 4s running on iOS 7 Beta 2 and 1/10 times, the camera actually works without crashing or freezing. About 2/10 times, my texting app will freeze and i have to do a hard restart. Also if my battery is low and my phone crashes, my touchscreen wont work and i have to charge it to about 15% for it to work again. I was much happier with beta one because there werent so many major bugs. And I only noticed my phone getting really hot while playing an Emulator or watching a movie while im outside in the summer heat. 😉

    With iOS Beta 1 and 2 I’ve had overheating problems to the point where in Beta 1, after a week, my phone was getting only 1.5 hours of battery life after a full charge and you could feel the phone getting warmer and warmer as the battery life indicator goes down. With Beta two I see the battery life performance dwindling slowly and phone gets warmer at times, but so far now as bad as with Beta 1. Still needs a lot of work in this area. Also get the random crashing with both beta versions. A few more bugs in Beta 2 that I didn’t discover with Beta 1 such as certain apps not opening at all and certain features within the calendar app and Clock app not functioning. Also some of the clock app times are not reflected correctly when it’s in analog mode, but correct time in digital mode.

    I’m running iOS 7 beta 2 and who wouldn’t unless you never heard of beta 2 was out. Anyway iOS 7 Beta 2 is fine all it needs is a more smoother UI performance. Like when using Safari, when switching to other pages it glitches a little. Another fix i want to see is Siri new voice to be more common. Next is Task bar Glitches real bad and needs to be smoother/ better rendering. Next is if there going to use parallax, they need to implement a new type of way of making it not make the device hot and save battery. One reason why apps/games crash is because of the use of parallax. Parallax uses allot of ram which apps need for good performance. There going to have to make iOS 7 to have a smarter UI to render apps better. I turned off Parallax and I can play GTA Vice City without losing so much frames that there is no texture in the game. Well that’s my input there more things I would state but im going to keep it short!!!

    My iOS 7 has been hot when doing various tasks, such as watching Netflix and playing with iOS apps and such, I am using an iPhone 4S beta 2 and waiting for the new beta update. My other iPhone is used for multimedia purposes and not meant to brick or jailbreak it. It is running iOS 6.1.3 and I noticed it gets hot when I call my girlfriend over FaceTime. It’s not as hot as iOS 7’s although.

    I have an EXTREMELY laggy keyboard when using the Apple messaging app now (beta 2, iPhone 4S). I’ve tracked the amount of time it takes for a key hit to register, and it averages from four to six seconds… That’s insanely disruptive when I’m try to send a text in a hurry, so I’m really hoping it’s improved by beta 3.

    Yes, my phone has been crashing to the apple logo a lot in Beta 2 and also many times my background would automatically turn black. Luckily after turning on and off my iPhone 5 the black background will go away. My IOS 7 beta 2 has been running a lot smoother than Beta 1 but it still is pretty laggy and slow, just not as much as Beta 1. Hopefully Beta 3 will fix these problems and make it run faster and smoother.

    i have beta 2 and my phone crashes to the apple logo constantly. it crashes on a number of apps too. it never lets me use IMDB. the reader on safari only works half of the time. instagram and vine videos sometimes won’t load at all. using the camera sometimes makes the phone crash as well. the most annoying part is that when my battery is like than 20%, sometimes i can’t get into my phone. slide to unlock doesn’t work and it doesn’t matter if i restart my phone over and over. it will only work when i connect to charge. so frustrating.

    When will you all realize that this is a “BETA”. There’s a long way to go until the GM is released and the whole point of beta’s is to find out where the problems are and to fix them. As far as apps crashing, with nearly 1 million apps in the app store there is also along way to go until the developers update their apps to run on IOS 7.

    Moral to the story:

    If you cant handle the bugs and glitches and cant be bothered to do the right thing and report them to Apple then downgrade to 6.1.3/6.1.4 and stop fu#ing moaning.

    I have iOS 7 Beta 2 running on my iPhone 4. As far as overheating I haven’t experienced that, but I have experienced a lot of the stock apps freezing like iMessages and Camera. I will occasionally have to reboot or it will do it itself. So a lot of crashing and freezing, but other than that it will work as expected. Yes, many of the current Appstore apps won’t work well because none of them are optimized for iOS 7. That will come with the GM release. Battery life seems to be better on iOS 7 than on iOS 6 for me anyway. Another few glitches to note are some of the graphics not displaying in the correct area or incorrectly, like on the Lockscreen instead of the clock being in its usual place it will be in the center of the screen and then jump back up when it’s ready. Also, I’ve noticed small shadows on the corners of the screen where the status bar is if I have an app like Safari open for example (When you lock your screen and unlock directly into an app). The biggest issue I see is the crashing and the slowness throughout the UI. That’s been my experience with iOS 7 so far.

    yeah, the status bar on my phone acts like its in portrait mode sometimes. My phone over heats very easily, answering phone calls makes the phone freeze, pulling down the notification center in apps like safari and others make it freeze. Even maps sometimes crashes when trying to add an address in the search field. There’s also that black background that comes up when killing multitasking applications. Another thing i noticed is when your on a phone call and you try to answer a notification, the phone doesn’t unlock when you touch the notification and swipe there, you have to swipe back, touch the slide to unlock text, and swipe there to get into the phone. also if you have a sleep times and you take a video and not touch the screen, it will literally go to sleep! The video will stop recording too.

    Well, the icons and designs of iOS7 is nice. However, the performance disappointed me greatly. Alot of bugs, lags, auto-restarts, hangs, camera and other apps not working, battery draining even faster, phone overheating very fast and so much more.
    IF, they could modify iOS7, to be BETTER than iOS 6.1.3/6.1.4, in terms of perfomance, I’m sure they will be alot of people willing to use iOS 7.

            well first of all there’s the horrible battery life, i have to charge it like twice a day, and if i’m just on the phone looking at facebook or whatever, it can easly drop 10 percent in 10-15 minutes

            keep your staff synced on itunes (Contacts, Pics, Videos, Ringtones and Books). Restore your iphone and sync again with itunes. The hassle will be to get back your Apps the way you want but everything else will come back. Remember to transfer App purchses from iphone to itunes before you start restore.

          10. Drugge says:

            but whyyy isn’t there a way to downgrade without doing a full restore?

          11. LuneJake says:

            You can always backup your photos in iPhoto. Just create a new album in iPhoto then select that album in itunes after you do a clean restore. You can always pick the apps you want to install also. If you are downgrading to iOS 6. Once you’ve setup the phone again the way you want, just back up to your computer, not iCloud. A long process, but you will have a good backup the way you want it, for the next time you downgrade from iOS 7, due to the bugs. Remember it is a BETA, it will more than likely always have bugs, until the final release. Even then, it may still have issues that need to be addressed.

    Sometimes on my iPod touch 5th gen, the status bar goes landscape when I’m in the menu, what a nuisance! I know they will fix this tomorrow!

    It’s been working great on my iPhone 5. Only time it gets hot is when im using nav (Google Maps or Maps). Status bar sometimes gets stuck in portrait mode. Mailbox has a small bug where the red icon badge stays in the upper right corner of the screen after opening the app. Weather crashes if I try to delete the New York location. Other than that, battery life is much improved in beta 2. I immediately downgraded after updating my iPad Mini (display flickering, showing no apps including stock apps), but then again, beta 2 for the Mini is really like beta 1 for the iPhone.

    ipod 5 crashes randomoly on ios 7 beta 2 and then when it gets to apple logo, its shows a refreshing circle and then blank screen. it then repeats over and over again and never ends. u have tothen go to recovery mode and download ios 6.1.3 again. i got ios 7 beta 2 two times and it has done this both times so now im on ios 6.1.3 until ios 7 beta 3 comes out. ps: i always download ios 7 beta 1 first and then update too ios 7 beta 2. updating to ios 7 beta 2 could be causing the crashing but i could be wrong. plzz fix this, i reallywant to stay with ios 7 plzz, i really want u too notify this to your developers pzz!!!

      beta is intended for Apple developer licence holders for testing purposes and app code upgrade.
      No common user should have it installed on his/hers device
      iOS7 GM/Retail is expected somehow in fall so i would say it is an aswer to your first question.

      Second question answer is:
      Sure you can install beta 2 directly.
      From beta 1 to beta 2 i would suggest use OTA

    iPhone 5, iOS 7 Beta 2

    Yeah, I have that problem, except the overheating is not really a noticeable issue for me. I get the crashes somewhat frequently though. The rest of my bugs are visual, but extremely troublesome. Like one, where if a game launches, or some other application that allows for the status bar to disappear, it does not, but instead remains visible in black. And this is a problem in all apps that allow for this, not just one. If they could get rid of the lag, the visual bugs, and the crashing, and apparently the heating issue, then things would be great! Also, I would love to see developers being forced to update their apps to iPhone 5 resolution and compatible with at least iOS 6, and if possible, 7.

    Nope, My 5 runs a lot better then with the first beta. But my ipad mini runs like a dog… Which is why i sold it. The A5 and smaller amount of ram just is to me a bit to low on the specs side. I had a 4th gen iPad and wish i kept that.

      The A5 mini is the currently the latest (and only so far) iPad Mini out, so its clearly gonna get optimized for iOS 7.. Where only at beta 2 what do you expect? Aswel as been the first iPad beta.. I had doubts about the 4S but I think there will be speed improvements since the similar hard ware to the Mini

      yes there is a way…. use Xcode do reinstall os 7 when you see a black screen on the the iPhone unplug the iPhone from the mac and quit Xcode the iPhone will revert to a recovery mode …. at this point connect the iPhone to mac and to the iTunes and reinstall the iOS 6 from there……

    Hey all! Thanks to a YouTube user I was able to fix the drain and overheating issue on my iPhone (5) without installing or reloading software. Apple is introducing new background locations services that are most likely being run at full force to gather data on usage and battery life. So we’re the test tube. If you don’t want to wait until these new services are optimized do the following

    Settings > Privacy > Location Services > *scroll to bottom* > System Services > you can turn off everything here. Don’t worry these are all nonessential services. Turn off the switches to fix the issue.

    I kept the usage and statistics reporting on because I want apple to make ios7 as awesome as possible. But my phone battery is lasting as normal and not heating up while sleeping like it was yesterday!

    Hope it works for you too!

    im running the beta 2 on my iphone 4s and i notice that when i run the gps the battery runs down about 3 percent every minute running it. on ios 6 it would run down about 1 percent every minute running gps. i have notice that it does run a little hot and i hope that they fix that problem and it does crash a lot.

    It’s a very buggy OS indeed… especially since all they did was add new icons and change the menu system fonts and location…. the core base of the UI hasn’t changed, so not sure why these betas are that buggy!

        Dude, it’s a beta, you should’ve seen iOS 6 beta. The end result will literally look nothing at all like the beta. iOS 6 beta 2 looked even worse. They strip out EVERYTHING in betas to work on the nitty gritty behind the scenes code that you don’t see; the more complex stuff comes afterwards. Next time, don’t downgrade to the beta, stick with the normal OS 😛

    Much more buggy than Beta 1, battery has improved slightly (although still awful) and the random crashes are very annoying indeed.

      Hey this happened to me too. To fix it, initiate Siri and state the name of any app to have her unlock and open it for you. The screen will then function after the battery notice appears! Hope this helps.

    Its a beta, problem are not only gonna happen, they are expected. I havent had any overheating problems in beta 2. It does crash a lot on big usage apps like the camera or music player. But the new features make even the mild crashes worth the beta. Once the bugs are removed and newer features are added, iOS 7 should be amazing.

    wow, you guys are such morons, ITS A BETA !!!! not fit for public use. how can you expect it to run as a stable daily rom while its in beta. start complaining after they released the public version, only then it’s your good right. but as long its in a ” closed ” developer beta you should just zip your pie holes and wait for final release. or use it and don’t complain !

      The point is that it’s still in beta mode and that this is only its third release. iOS 7 is expected to be released sometime in the fall, so it’s safe to say that at this point, iOS 7 is far from ready for public release.

      As with anything new, it’s going to have some bugs before it’s ready for the general public.
