It could just be indexing if the phone is new as iOS will build up a search index for any data or apps on the phone. This should clear after a few days once the indexing is done

 

Incidentally Apple only recommend closing apps if they are unresponsive as iOS will manage background apps itself

I just wanted to support what both said above. When you get a new iPhone the power consumption in the first week or so it massive as it indexes the phone, downloads new apps, data, photos based on teh setting from backup. This shouldn’t last too long but excessive use will make the phone hot! 

 

To help speed this process up connect to a good Wi-Fi and plug the phone in. While it’s on Power it will work harder as it doesn’t need to try and save power. 

 

Like i said though, this shouldn’t more than a week at most! Unless you have 8 million photos all set to download! 

 

Also, check the battery option in settings to see what’s using the power. Having the phone display on 100% and constantly on will make it hot. With the sun at the moment autobrightness will be going mad! I find this when i put my phone in my pocket and forget to turn the screen off, starts to give off heat!
