Apple acknowledges heating issues on iPhone 15 Pro models; blames third-party apps, software bug

0 27

Apple has acknowledged the heating issues on the iPhone 15 Pro series, claiming that the new devices may feel warmer in the few days after setting up or restoring owing to the increased background activity. 

In a statement about the heating issues on iPhone 15 Pro models, Apple told Forbes, “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.”

Apple has also blamed third-party apps like Instagram, Uber and Asphalt 9 for causing heating issues on the new iPhones. The Forbes report noted that Instagram had rolled out an update on September 27 in order to fix the heating issue while Apple is working with other app developers as well. 

“We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that is impacting some users and will be addressed in a software update. Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system. We’re working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of rolling out.” the Cupertino-based tech giant added. 

Apple had introduced the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models during the Wonderlust event earlier this month. The high end smartphones came with a new titanium build and the A 17 Pro chipsets compared to A 16 chips on the base models.

However, many users have now complained about the overheating issues on the iPhone 15 Pro models, some even going to the extent of saying that new iPhone had become too hot to much.

According to notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the cause of overheating issues in the iPhone 15 Pro series is not related to the TSMC’s 3 nm process in the new A 17 Pro chipset.

Instead, Kuo noted that the heating issues are likely to be related to the ‘compromises made in the thermal system design to ahieve a lighter weight’ and reduced heat dissipation area along with a titanium frame which has reduced the heat dissipation area.

He also predicted that Apple could address the heating issues on the iPhone 15 Pro lineup with future software updates but there could be limited improvements if Apple does not lower processor performance.
