iPhone 15 Overheating Issue
The update, as per the change log, offers critical bug fixes, and security enhancements, and addresses the issue of iPhones running warmer than anticipated.
Over the weekend, Apple acknowledged social media reports regarding the heat issues with their new iPhones. Apple attributed the problem to a combination of misconfigured apps, iOS bugs, and the extra processing and heat generation during the initial setup period.
The iOS 17.0.3 update focuses on resolving software-related issues within iOS, and app developers are also releasing updates to rectify any app-specific problems.
Apple clarified that the overheating problem had no connection to the new titanium and aluminum frame design found in the higher-end Pro models. Additionally, it was not related to the USB-C charging port featured in the new phones.
Apple’s official website explains that all iPhones may exhibit slight warmth during activities such as data restoration from a backup, wireless charging, usage of graphics-intensive applications or games, or streaming high-quality video. Apple assures users that iPhones are safe for use unless they display a specific temperature warning.
