The iPhone 15 heating issue is being identified by Apple and acknowledged the presence of several factors leading to elevated temperatures in new iPhones. And the main cause is a notable bug in the iOS 17 software being one of the culprits. This issue is slated for resolution in an upcoming update.
In response to user complaints regarding the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro running unusually warm, Apple explained that initial warmth may be experienced during the first few days of device setup or restoration due to heightened background activity.
Additionally, Apple identified a separate concern linked to recent updates in third-party applications, which were exerting excessive strain on the system. The company is actively collaborating with app developers to rectify these issues, with updates in the pipeline.
The list of third-party apps implicated in the problem includes Asphalt 9, Instagram by Meta, and Uber. Notably, Instagram had already addressed the issue with its app on September 27.
It’s important to note that the forthcoming iOS 17 bug fix will target the identified issues but will not compromise the overall performance of the iPhone to mitigate temperature concerns.
