On September 30, Apple said it would release a software update to address complaints from customers related to overheating issues on iPhone 15 models.
models According to CNBC, Apple confirmed that the new iPhone 15 is very hot due to many errors in iOS 17, errors in applications, and temporary setup times. “We have identified a number of conditions that could cause the iPhone to run warmer than expected,” an Apple spokesperson said. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device due to increased background activity. We also found a bug in iOS 17 that is affecting some users and will be fixed in a software update. Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that overload the system. We are working with the developers of this application on fixes during deployment.”
Previously, after Apple released the new iPhone 15 models, complaints from users on Apple forums, Reddit, and social networks showed that all four models could get hotter than expected during use.
Some allegations suggested that the titanium frame on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max was the cause of the overheating problem, but a statement from Apple denied this. According to the company, the upcoming iOS 17 update will address the overheating issue without reducing device performance.
Apple’s website says users may notice the iPhone 15 getting warmer when set up from backup, when charging wirelessly, using graphics-heavy apps or games, or streaming high-quality video. According to Apple, it’s normal for devices to get warm with heavy use, and if iPhones don’t display a temperature warning, they’re still safe to use.
Despite overheating issues, the new iPhone 15 models are selling well as delivery times stretch into weeks and long lines appear in front of Apple stores on launch day.
It is known that Apple has faced serious problems when launching products in the past, but that has not seriously affected the company’s long-term prospects. The iPhone 4 launched in 2010 had a design error that could cause calls to be interrupted, Apple provided free cases to improve the problem. In 2012, shortly after the iPhone 5 launched, Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized because Apple Maps was buggy and unreliable. The iPhone 6 launched in 2014 was criticized for bending under pressure.
