Apple has identified issues causing overheating in the highly anticipated iPhone 15 has raised eyebrows across the tech world.
Apple (AAPL.O) announced on Saturday that it has pinpointed several factors leading to the new iPhones running at higher temperatures than anticipated. These factors include a bug within the iOS 17 software, which is set to be resolved in an upcoming software update.
Following reports of increased warmth in the new phones, Apple has explained that the device might exhibit a higher temperature during the initial days "after setting up or restoring the device because of increased background activity."
Apple mentioned another problem linked to recent updates in third-party applications, leading to system overload. The company stated it's collaborating with app developers to implement solutions that are currently in the deployment phase.
Among the third-party apps responsible for this problem are Asphalt 9, Instagram by Meta, and Uber, as reported by Apple. Instagram has already resolved the issue with its application on September 27.
The forthcoming bug fix in iOS 17 will not compromise performance in order to resolve the iPhone's temperature concerns.
Apple, headquartered in Cupertino, California, clarified that overheating is not a concern for the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max due to their design. Instead, the introduction of new titanium shells enhances heat dissipation when compared to previous stainless steel models.
Furthermore, Apple assured that this problem does not pose any safety or injury risks and will not have any adverse effects on the long-term performance of the phone.
For the unversed, according to a recent Mashable article, iPhone 15 owners have been experiencing excessive heat issues with their devices. A number of users have reported instances of overheating during demanding mobile gaming sessions.
Additionally, recording high-quality 4K video appears to trigger thermal problems. Some individuals have even claimed that the mere act of charging the iPhone 15 results in significant heat generation. In certain cases, the phone becomes uncomfortably hot to the touch, making it difficult to use for a phone call.
