Default My iPhone 6s sometimes gets hot while charging

Note I said sometimes. Sometimes I'll charge it from about 20% battery to full and it will stay cool. Today I charged it from about the same percentage of battery life and it got pretty darn hot. Same conditions and environment. I do not use the phone while it is on the charger. Any ideas?

Define hot? Like too hot to touch? Or warmer than usual?

Heating up is expected on almost any device during charging. If it's TOO hot, I'd look into an exchange just in case.

Gets 'very warm'. Not too hot to the point I can't hold it. But the thing is it only happens sometimes.

I can't compare my device to yours since it's larger and therefore has more heat dissipation due to surface area.

But mine has only ever gotten moderately warmer, even when gaming or watching videos. Perhaps the 6s is a bit more susceptible to heating?

Here is a thread on the Apple community discussing various forms of heating.

If your phone is still heating up overtime, contact Apple support. It is possible that your iPhone may be defective. If that is the case, Apple should replace it for you.

I've never had the phone get really warm with normal usage off the charger. YouTube and light gaming the phone never gets hot. It only gets warm, and still only sometimes, when charging. Oh well, not sure if it's really an issue. Everything else seems fine.

It will charge slower plugged into the computer vs the wall, probably the difference in heat you are noticing in relation to that.
