The frequent but sporadic complaints of the new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro phones overheating have prompted an answer from Apple.
Despite some prior speculation that the titanium body and new A17 Pro chip on the Pro handsets could be to blame for at least some of the claims, the firm assures that the problem is not hardware-related. Apple claims that three separate software-related problems are to blame.
According to the company’s statement, which was obtained by MacRumors, “We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected.”
First off, due to increased background activity, phones may “feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device.” This is really basic advice for any phone: when you initially set it up, it’s probably downloading updates, changing settings, and generally functioning in the background. This is amplified if you’re avidly utilising your new pride and pleasure at the same time.
According to Apple, there is a bug in iOS 17 that affects some users and will be rectified in a future software update. This is excellent news for customers who were sold on the new devices’ raw speed because the firm made sure to emphasise to Forbes that this isn’t a euphemism for slowing performance to lower temperatures.
In addition, Apple claims that some particular changes to third-party apps are “causing them to overload the system.” Uber, Asphalt 9, and Instagram were mentioned by the business, and Apple claims to be “working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of rolling out.” In fact, this was updated on Instagram on September 27.

The company was quick to stress to Forbes that this isn’t a euphemism for decreasing performance to decrease temperatures, which is great news for customers who were sold on the new gadgets’ sheer speed.
