iPhone users around the world are complaining about buying hot iPhones, and I don’t mean “hot” as stolen. Apparently some iPhones are having the same type of overheating battery problems prevalent in other small computer batteries which have been recalled over the last few years. Reports and reports of reports (like this one) are popping up all over the web about users complaining that their iPhone 3G S is overheating to the point of being too hot to handle, some even becoming discolored by the extreme heat.
As of yet, we haven’t heard of any iPhone 3G batteries exploding like so many laptop batteries have recently, but tmcnet, PCWorld, ChannelWeb, MacDailyNews, and several other online tech publications have all reported on the story, often with first-hand accounts.
Is there going to be an iPhone 3G S recall?
If so, it will affect a lot of people, with Apple having sold over 1-million iPhone 3Gs in just the first weekend on the market.
