Overheating causes several problems relating to battery, performance, etc. iPhone X is a great smartphone but it is still vulnerable to some common problems. One of them is overheating.
There are two reasons for iPhone X, which comes from internal and external. The internal reason relates to the overloaded processor due to playing games or watching HD videos, etc, and your iPhone X will get overheated. The external factors cause the overheating issues coming from the direct sunlight or warm temperatures or simply keeping your phone in your pocket for a long time. All of them can heat up your phone.
