    I took my phone to the local Apple shop due to the overheating and battery draining.
    I was told by them that it is a software issue not the phone.
    I was also advised to delete the mcoc app and not play it or it would result in permanent damage to my phone.
    Because it is a software issue (mcoc app) and if the phone was damaged by it I was informed that Apple would void the phones warrantly

    So it’s confirmed IT IS THE APP MCOC THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM, not hadware but clearly the app that is causing the problem.

    Yes they are absolutely right. It’s a pure software issue as Apple test their devices million times before they launch and also their iOS upgrades. My phone is almost screwed up due to the game play and my batt lifecycle gone worse after playing for a year on my new phone. I have never seen any phone hanging issue with any app than this game. It’s eating all our devices basically due to too much of programming logic and resource hungry. Being an IT person I know what multi threading is and what memory leakage it could be partly due to it. Plus too much of animation and graphics is not easy to handle so we need super computers or Apple should design a phone specific for this game guys else it’s going to get worse with more and more new stuff

    Seriously I wouldn't play on iOS. You're risking your device. It won't surprise me that many people have ruined devices before this is fixed.

    Been facing the same problems as originally described on my iPhone 7 Plus too. Ever since the new update, after playing the game for say 15-30mins my phone starts overheatings and becomes unresponsive. All other apps start freezing or just don’t open.

    I’ve been playing on MCOC for over two years and never had this sort of issue. The latest update is over heating my phone and the game becomes unplayable within 10 mins. It also drains my battery insanely quick. I have an IPhone 6S Plus with the Ios11.4 software. It happens whether I’m on WiFi or not. This needs to be resolved ASAP before it destroys my phone. Thank you.

    Reading this, it’s apparent the lag is a direct result of the temperature issue. The lag/slowdown in gameplay is simply our devices protecting itself from the heat.

    Now, is there any update? I would love a fix before compensation turns into new phones from Kabam’s insurance company.

    Crashed before first attempt at "Ghost" fight in uncollected.

    Biggest thing I've noticed is that since Tuesday my phone gets super hot even without the game being on. I thought it was a bunch of apps all trying to run even though I hadn't had that problem before but I uninstalled almost every app and it still does it.

    Had a few fights where champs stopped fighting for between 1 and 2 seconds...

    iPhone X and iPhone 6plus both running iOS 12 Beta. X running really hot after just 2 min of game play. Phone went from 92% charge to 2% in 10 min and phone shut off, like battery dead. Plugged it in charger took 15 min to turn back on and was at 94% charge when it did. Thought it was just IOS 12 Beta but now I see it's the stupid game. And 19.0 has been out for 3 days now no fix, still no compensation from last weeks server outage and now all iPhone players and some other phones same issue. Seriously think it's time to delete, delete and delete!!!

    Iphone 6
    IOS 11.4
    WIFI 5G or 2.4 G
    Internet speed 1 GIG FTTH
    Speed test approved on the phone!

    The game starts perfectly and no lag issue and no overheating for at least 10-15 minutes of game play then I need to close the game and wait to cool down.
    The game is still playable after 20 minutes with overheating you could still play 10-15 minutes with no lag then it starts going really slow. takes for ever to go fight to fight.

    KABAM all we want is you guys figure stuff out before doing updates. so many people are struggling and this need to get address really soon.
    in the past I never got refunded anything for selling my 4 catalyst at the time...

    Anyways enough said PLEASE UPDATE THE GAME ASAP

    Device and Model: iPhone 7+
    Device Operating System: iOS 11.4
    Cellular or WiFi: Cellular Verizon and WiFi
    Game Version Installed: 19.0.0
    Game Mode: Happens across all game modes
    Description of the Issue:
    1. Phone gets hot first
    2. Sound then cuts out
    3. There is a delay in play causing champs not to block or parry in time.
    4. Longer loading times between screen, pausing effect (lag)
    5. Unable to turn up volume, swipe up or down on screen does not bring up notifications or the control panel of the iPhone.
    6. Game freezes, however the actions are still running in the back ground, I have experienced a return to sound like a buffer of all the sounds being played at once followed by a complete crash of the game.
    7. Holding the power button down for a few seconds will allow me to return to my phones functions after about a minute or so.
    8. Phone has to cool off for about 10 minutes or so before I can re-enter the game.
    9. War, delayed response time resulted in loss of champs.

    I love this game, but am currently unable to play arena, or any other game modes for any length of time.

    As a side note I play a variety of other games, all with pretty intense visual effects and none have had any of the aforementioned problems. I stopped by the geek squad today at Best Buy, and met a fellow MCOC player who stated he is not running it all right now because the over hearing could damage his iPhone, he is experiencing the same problems, while not quite as severely as mine on his iPhone X

    My IPhone 7 froze 4 times, and I had to reset it each time. Volume bottoms unresponsive, the whole phone was unresponsive and then crashed. The battery was boiling.
    iPhone 7 11.4
    Ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous. Lags as well are getting worse and worse. Especially when I open crystals.

    Did like 3 fights in RoL and my iPad shut itself down, noticed it was very hot down to the right of the home button. Haven’t played and probably won’t try it on my 8+ being I just got it and don’t want to risk ruining it.

    Similar issues; the rebooting being the biggest problem. Seem to reboot mid-fight if I've been playing a while (30 minutes+). When this happens, the phone is considerably warmer than Normal.

    I stop playing when it gets hot and it doesn’t shut down but if I don’t it will shut down. Doesn’t take much time.. 30 min maybe 40.
    This is insane.

    iPhone 7 Plus. IOS 11.4 Phone shuts off. Freezes. Screen goes blank till hard restart. Game performance awful. Remove contest app, all back to normal. Reset phone as new with most recent backup. With champions installed, same problems. Get rid of champions app, reset, all good. Unfortunately been playing the game for years with lots invested at this point. So will this ever be fixed? Phone runs like badly coded malware / spyware installed when app installed.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one having iPhone issues with this new update, thought it was my phone at first but it's clearly not the issue anymore. Phone freezes mid-game (usually while in a match) all buttons become unresponsive except Assistive Touch when I have it on, and I mean ALL buttons. After a minute or two of a black screen with loading symbol in thecenter, iPhone does a soft reset and loads back to my lock screen.

    OS 11.4
    iPhone 7
    Verizon 4G LTE
