Apple Admits iPhone Overheating Issues, Says Software is to Blame


It’s undeniably one of the most popular smartphone brands in the world, but even Apple’s newest iPhone 15 Pro models aren’t safe from performance issues.

According to different reports online, users have experienced overheating on their iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max units while performing different tasks, such as charging, camera usage, social media apps, and gaming. It would appear that Apple has been listening, after the Cupertino-based company issued a statement acknowledging the overheating problem on its devices. As per Apple:

“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. 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.”

Based on this, Apple is adamant that the overheating issue can be solved by a software fix, as well as working with third-party app developers to fully optimize their software for the 15 Pro Models. The company also refuted speculations that the titanium frame contributed to the heating problem on the phones, a theory which some have claimed to be the root cause.

In any case, iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max users should keep an eye out for any new software updates from Apple soon.
