Apple is working hard to find the cause of iPhone 15 overheating

Apple announced yesterday that it has identified several problems that can cause more intense heating during the operation of new iPhones, including an error in the iOS 17 software itself, which will be corrected in an upcoming update.

After a large number of complaints from users that the new phones get very hot during operation, the company from Cupertino stated that the device could be expected to be hotter in the first few days of operation “after preliminary settings or restoring the device to its previous state due to the increased activity of executing numerous processes that take place in the background”.

Apple claims titanium case is ‘cool'

“Another issue involves some recent updates to applications from third-party software companies that cause system overload,” Apple announced. At the moment, we are working extensively with the app developers on fixes and they are currently in the process of being rolled out.

Third-party apps causing the problem include the following games and apps, some of which are very popular and frequently used: Asphalt 9, Meta, Instagram, and Uber. Instagram has already fixed the issue with its app on September 27.

The upcoming bug fix in the iOS 17 version of the operating system will not affect the performance reduction of the device as originally assumed, and in order to affect the reduction of the operating temperature of the iPhone phone.

The company based in Cupertino, California stated that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max do not suffer from overheating due to the design and use of new materials as many users speculated on social networks, but quite the opposite.

The new titanium cases, as shown by the results of detailed testing, result in more efficient heat dissipation compared to the previous models that were made of stainless steel, and in this regard there should not be the slightest doubt.

Apple also added that the observed problem is not risky for the safety of users, nor does it cause injuries and will not affect the long-term performance of the device, Reuters reports.
