Daughter's iPhone 5c is going into thermal shutdown a lot, and dang is it hot ! During operation and charge. I suspect a dying battery. OK, fine, I have tools and a magnifying thingamajig for my head, but... eww. hot glue ?

Is there possibly an active Apple recall for these suckers ? Because hot smiley ?

Disassemble and remove battery at high noon outdoors in Phoenix.

How about a 5s at Walmart.

Edit: heh, engineers often pawn these technical jobs off on technicians with technique and technical skills because they know what they're doing.

The battery on a 5c will take you $25 and 60 minutes to replace the first time, and you'll be glad you did it. 30 minutes the net time you need to do it.

I paid $10 for a battery for my 5, chickened out on doing it myself, guy in Harrisburg, NC changed it for $20.
So for $30 I didn't have to mess with it and I honestly believe it's better than it was when it was new.

Is it harder on a 5 than on a 4s? That one took me maybe 10 minutes after watching a Youtube video. It costs something like $12 for battery and tools on eBay.

I've replaced batteries on two different 5c phones. Batteries are $6 on eBay, or a couple of bucks more with a tool kit. Watch the ifixit video and you can do it yourself. The only tricky part is removing the sticky tape that holds the battery in; it's impossible to remove as demonstrated by the video. Each time I wound up prying the original battery off the tape. This wrecks the battery, but so what. Dispose of it in an environmentally correct manner.
