Apple has acknowledged that there are a few issues causing new iPhones to run warmer than expected. These issues include a bug in the iOS 17 software, which will be fixed in an upcoming update. Apple has stated that the device may feel warmer in the first few days after setup or restoration due to increased background activity.
Apple has also identified that recent updates to third-party apps are overloading the system and contributing to the heating issue. The company is working with app developers to roll out fixes for these apps. The affected apps include Asphalt 9, Meta’s Instagram, and Uber. Instagram has already resolved the issue with its app on September 27.
It is important to note that the upcoming iOS 17 bug fix will not compromise the performance of the iPhone to address the temperature issue. Apple assures users that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are not prone to overheating due to their design. The new titanium shells of these models improve heat dissipation compared to previous stainless steel models.
Apple emphasizes that the heating issue is not a safety or injury risk and will not have any long-term impact on the phone’s performance.
In summary, Apple has acknowledged the heating issues with new iPhones and has identified the causes, including a bug in the iOS 17 software and certain third-party apps. The company is actively working on fixes and assures users that the issue does not pose any safety risks or affect long-term performance.
