Estimated read time: 1-2 minutes
CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple has acknowledged and addressed the concerns regarding new iPhones running warmer than expected. The tech giant has identified a bug in the iOS 17 software, which will be rectified in an upcoming update.
Recent complaints from users indicated that the new iPhones were experiencing excessive warmth. Apple responded by stating that the device may feel warmer during the initial usage period, especially after setting up or restoring the device, due to increased background activity.
Apple further explained that third-party apps were also contributing to the overheating issue. The company has been actively collaborating with app developers to resolve the matter. Among the apps identified to be causing problems are Asphalt 9, Meta’s Instagram, and Uber. Instagram has already fixed the issue with its app on September 27.
The upcoming iOS 17 bug fix, however, will not compromise the performance of the iPhone, as it specifically addresses the temperature concerns.
The Cupertino-based company clarified that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models do not suffer from overheating issues due to their improved design. The new titanium shells in these models enhance heat dissipation compared to prior models with stainless steel casings.
Apple also assured customers that the issue does not pose any safety or injury risks, and it will not have a detrimental impact on the long-term performance of the iPhone.
