Apple Apple said on Saturday it would release a software update that would address customer complaints about the latest iPhone 15 models released a week ago.

Apple said the new iPhone models were running hot due to a combination of bugs in iOS 17, bugs in apps, and temporary set-up periods.

An Apple spokesperson told CNBC:

“We have identified some conditions that may cause iPhone to run hotter than expected. An increase in background activity may cause the device to feel hot during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device. A bug has also been found that is affecting 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 “Working with app developers on improvements that are in the process of rolling out.”

After Apple released new iPhone 15 models earlier this month, complaints from users on Apple’s forums, Reddit, and social media suggest that all four models may get hotter than expected during use. CNBC’s review of the new iPhone Pros also said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max overheated.

“I just got the iPhone 15 Pro today and it’s so hot I can’t even hold it for long!” wrote one commenter on Apple’s forums.

Apple’s new high-end models, the $999 iPhone 15 Pro and $1,199 iPhone 15 Pro Max, feature a redesigned titanium enclosure with an aluminum frame to make them easier to repair. Apple said the overheating problems with the new models were not related to the titanium chassis design.

Instead, Apple points to bugs in specific apps and a bug in iOS that can be fixed with a software update. Apple said that the upcoming iOS 17 update will not degrade device performance to address the issue.

Apple’s website says Users may feel the phone heat up when they set up a backup, charge wirelessly, use graphics-heavy apps or games, or stream high-quality video. Apple says it’s normal for devices to heat up when they’re being used heavily, and if iPhones don’t display a temperature warning, they’re safe to use.

there are still long lines
