    Several months ago the HTC One M9 was slaughtered for releasing a device that overheated after running specific benchmark tests and games. The phone was ran so far through the mud that it was almost untouchable to the average consumer. Now we are learning that the iPhone 6s is suffering some of the same overheating issues with the new A9 chip. Many users are reporting that after using the phone for a bit they are unable to use their flash when taking a picture. The error that pops up states that the device has to cool down before being able to use the flash. Will we see the same negative reporting from news outlets or is there a double standard? Will they just excuse this by saying its not effecting many users?

    Dah. You didn't really want to use your flash anyway. You just thought you did so we fixed it so you wouldn't do what you really didn't want to do anyway.

    Next they will do what HTC did and release a Patch to throttle the HW and then state its not a HW issue and never was.

    Its because they were taking pictures wrong. Obviously you need a studio with proper lighting.
