Processors heat up more when they're older?

I took my mom's phone (it's a galaxy S5) because she was complaining about the short battery life and the heat it generates. So than I remember that my last phone (Galaxy s4) also made the same thing on it's last days, I want to know if processors heat up more when they're older or it's caused by the battery?

Hello and welcome.

 

It's likely the battery.  Those absolutely will eventually fail and begin to swell.  The processor in the phone shouldn't degrade at all in the time it takes for a battery to go bad.

Short battery life is probably caused by a combination of age, and apps that are consuming a large amount of resources (explaining the heat output). 
 

I don’t know what apps may be running on that particular device, so I’ll suggest a more general approach of a battery replacement and a factory reset if you intend to keep the device in service.

I have basically the pre install apps, Facebook and Instagram running. I'll try battery replacement

The battery has deteriorated extensively and needs to be replaced. This phone came out 6 years ago.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
