Why is my iPhone heating up when it charges?

And my battery isn't very good I lose about 10% in about 20 minutes.

The fact that your battery drains quickly tells me the heat is from your battery because it's going bad. Time to get a new battery.

The heat in the electricity causes your phone to heat up

There is no heat "in" electricity. They are two separate forms of energy.

Well yea they are two different forms of energy but for example, you know in cartoons how when a character gets shocked by electricity, they end up being burned, im guessing its because of the shocks In electricity that need the energy to charge a cell phone, tend to heat up and heat the object as well

When electricity runs through an object, the electricity experiences friction. That friction is what causes the heat - electric energy is lost and converted to heat energy. But batteries are designed to avoid creating too much heat, because heat can damage electronics.

Yea, heat can destroy objects... My dad used to always tell me never leave my phone plugged in during a lightning storm because it could end up frying my phone... So I guess it only gets a small portion of heat to the point it wont be destroyed
