It was initially suspected that the titanium frame of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max was the culprit. However, that is not the case.
In fact, Apple says the titanium frame and aluminum substructure provides better heat dissipation than previous Pro models.
A Fix Is Coming
Apple is currently working on an update to the iOS17 operating system to prevent the devices from overheating. It’s also working with apps that are running in ways “causing them to overload the system.”
So far, Meta has already fixed the Instagram app, while Uber and other apps are still rolling out their updates.
As for Apple, there’s no word on when the iOS update will drop. However, it’s still safe for iPhone 15 owners to use their devices in the meantime.
“We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected,” Apple in a statement.
“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.”
