Some iPhone 6S users took to Twitter, saying "My iPhone 6S shut off with 50% battery left and the home button became so hot I couldn't touch it..." while another iPhone 6S owner said: "My iPhone 6S turned off and won't come back on and the TouchID is HOT to the touch". While these problems aren't as bad as the #bendgate issues with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, these problems still affect users.
