With A Software Update, Apple Promises To Address iPhone 15 Overheating Concerns.
Apple has issued an official statement regarding the overheating issues that some iPhone 15 users are experiencing.
Personally, I think it is a couple of factors. One is the Titanium hardware vs. the Steel of the previous models and perhaps the A17 chip.
This morning, the company informed Forbes of the following…
“We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device because of increased background activity.”
Additionally, Apple claims to have discovered a flaw in iOS 17 that affects a subset of user's third-party code that causes devices to become overloaded.
“We have also discovered a flaw in iOS 17 that affects a subset of users, which will be fixed in a future software update.
Additionally, recent updates to third-party applications are causing them to overwhelm the system. We are collaborating with these app developers on adjustments that are in the process of being implemented.”
Instagram is rumored to have published a potential fix (version 302) on September 27, and Apple is investigating whether other apps may have the same vulnerability.
Apple claims that the overheating issue is not attributable to the new titanium material used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
In addition, the company asserts that overheating poses no threat to the iPhone’s safety or long-term performance because safeguards are in place.
