Patcay.com – The tech giant, Apple, has finally provided an explanation for the frequent overheating issue experienced by iPhone 15 users.
Apple announced that the excessive heat in these iPhones is due to a hidden software bug in iOS 17, which will be addressed in an upcoming update.
As reported in a release on Saturday, September 30, 2023, Apple explained that users may experience unusual warmth in their devices during the first few days after initial setup or device restoration, which is caused by increased background activity.
Furthermore, recent updates from third-party applications have also contributed to raising the device’s temperature, subsequently affecting overall performance.
Apple emphasized that they are currently collaborating with app developers to release updates that will address these issues.
Some known third-party apps causing problems include Asphalt 9, Instagram, and Uber. The good news is that Instagram has already released an update to address the issue on September 27.
In the upcoming bug-fix update for iOS 17, Apple assures users that the device’s performance will not be impacted and will remain optimal even when the temperature rises.
For iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max users, Apple assures that they do not face similar issues due to their more advanced design. The new titanium casing on these models has better cooling capabilities compared to the previous stainless steel models.
Additionally, Apple stressed that this issue does not affect the safety or health of users and will not impact the long-term performance of these sophisticated smartphones.
