The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus recently went on sale in the US and other countries. These smartphones are equipped with the latest and fastest hardware from Apple along with new 3D Touch display and high-resolution cameras. While users and critics have given thumbs up to the new iPhones, some iPhone 6s users have reported a weird Touch ID overheating issue.

A number of iPhone 6s users have submitted a particular complaint on Apple Discussions to highlight the issue, reports Tech Times. The issue is with the Touch ID / home button, which suddenly overheats, making the smartphone uncomfortable to hold. Some iPhone 6s owners have also taken it to social networking site Twitter, to express their outrage. Also Read - Apple delays MacBook Pro, AirPods 3rd gen shipments to October 29, but why?
The problem seems to occur when users hold down the Touch ID / home button for a while. Some iPhone 6s users have also pointed out that their phone would just switch off without giving any type of warning. While the phone no longer boots, the home button tends to become too hot to touch in the switched off state.
One Apple user, however, did come up with a temporary solution. Holding the home and power button together for about 10 seconds, reboots the phone and also does away with the Touch ID overheating issue.
Besides the Touch ID overheating issue, some users have also reported about abrupt shutdowns, even when battery is over 50 per cent and audio distortion problems among others. Although this is not a widespread issue, Apple is yet to officially comment on it.
