After the iPhone had debuted on the market in September of 2014, many consumers were happy with its arrival. The latest version of the iPhone had all the great features and technology as its predecessors, and it also included some new benefits as well. iPhone 6 owners still enjoy their product more than ever before. Even though iPhone 6 is a great smartphone device, it still has some problems. Some of those problems have to do with its ability to overheat, causing the battery to lose power quickly. This guide will offer solutions for these problems and help you to understand why your phone might have a tendency to overheat.
Your Processor and Overheating Issues
The first thing you must know about your iPhone 6 is that it uses an ARM processor and not an AMD chip. The Apple A8 is designed for ARM technology which is used exclusively for Apple’s iPhone line. However, all smartphone and tablet devices use ARM processing technology. Why? Because ARM chips are more energy efficient than AMD. In other words, they use less power to operate a device.
Since they use less power, they do not generate as much heat. Even if they are running hot, they will not cause your smartphone to stop working. Computers and laptops need fans to offset the heat generated by AMD chips. Even though ARM chips are more energy efficient they are less powerful than AMD, and this is why most computers and laptops do not use them.
Now that you understand how your processor works you will be able to fix your heating and battery draining issues in a short amount of time.
