Recently, Apple has been dealing with user complaints regarding the new iPhone 15 overheating. Users reported that the devices were becoming too hot to handle, sparking concerns and discussions across social media platforms. Apple has now responded, attributing the overheating problem to a bug in its latest operating system, iOS 17, and specific updates to third-party apps, including popular ones like Instagram, Uber, and Asphalt 9.
Due to high processing power usage, iPhones typically generate heat during initial setup or backup processes. However, the iPhone 15 users experienced a more severe issue, prompting widespread concerns. Apple acknowledged the problem and stated that they had identified the specific conditions leading to the elevated temperatures in the iPhone 15 models.
The tech giant explained that the overheating problem is linked to a bug in iOS 17, the latest version of Apple’s software designed for its recent iPhone models. Additionally, specific updates to third-party apps, particularly Instagram, were identified as causing the devices to overload, further increasing the issue. Apple assured users that they are collaborating with app developers, and fixes for these problems are underway, with some already implemented. Instagram, for instance, has already resolved the issue in their app.
Apple emphasized that the overheating concerns are not related to the new titanium casing used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which replaces the stainless steel casing in older models. The company also dispelled rumors that the issue was connected to the new USB-C port introduced to comply with European regulations. Apple assured users that the problem poses no safety or injury risk and will not impact the long-term performance of the devices.
While users had expressed frustration and concern about the overheating problem, Apple’s swift response and commitment to resolving the issue with software updates and collaboration with third-party developers should reassure iPhone 15 owners. As Apple continues to work on these fixes, users can expect improved performance and a safer, more reliable experience with their devices soon.
