Apple has acknowledged iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max overheating issue and will release iOS 17 update to fix it

Apple has acknowledged an issue with the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max overheating while running some apps and plans to release an iOS 17 update to fix it.

Apple said they found a bug in the iOS 17 operating system that can cause the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to overheat in some cases and only in users of new smartphones.

Apple explained that the high background activity of applications, typical of the first few days of operation of the smartphone after purchase or restoration, can also cause overheating. In this case, overheating should stop after all smartphone settings are activated and the device returns to normal operation.

Apple engineers have discovered that third-party apps, including social media clients, Uber and even Asphalt 9 games, are causing the new smartphones to overheat. The company is working with app developers to optimize their apps for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. In some cases, when running such programs, smartphones heat up quickly and lose battery power by about 1% per minute.

Apple’s official response to this issue is in the original.

We have identified few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may struggle for a warmer during the first few days after provisioning or restore the device to increase background activity. It will also be fixed in iOS 17, which is capable of some users and will be addressed in the software update. Others are mutual some new updates to third-party apps that they cause them to send to the system. We’re working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of being rolled out.

Earlier, specialized experts reported that the iPhone 15 Pro case heats up to 48°C under load. This can potentially cause a first degree burn. iPhone 15 Pro is designed on the basis of the 3-nanometer A17 Pro chip produced by TSMC. According to Apple, the chip has become the most powerful in the line. After the start of sales, it became clear that the smartphone gets very hot under load and the standard passive cooling is not always enough to reduce the temperature.

Experts believe that the problem is not only in the software, but also caused by “compromises” in the design of the heat dissipation system, which allowed Apple to reduce the weight of smartphones by using a titanium case. According to them, Apple will solve the problem with iOS updates, but this measure will not eliminate overheating completely, unless the performance of the smartphone’s processor is reduced.
