Several iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro customers complained last week about their new devices overheating and running at abnormally high temperatures. In response to these complaints, Apple has announced that a software update to address the issues is on its way.
Apple stated in a statement provided to Forbes and later shared with 9to5Mac that it is common for an iPhone to run hotter than usual during the first few days. As previously stated, iOS indexes photographs, searches, and other data in the background.
Apple also claims to have discovered a fault in iOS 17 that exacerbates the overheating issue for iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro customers. This issue will be “addressed in a software update,” according to the business.
Apple informs 9to5Mac that recent changes to third-party apps are causing the system to overload. The corporation claims to work directly with the developers to resolve the issues. Asphalt 9, Instagram, and Uber are among the apps Apple claims are overwhelming the iPhone CPU and causing handsets to overheat. According to Apple, Instagram fixed the issue on September 27.
