Apple Addresses iPhone 15 Overheating Concerns

TECH DIGEST- Apple has acknowledged and provided insight into the overheating concerns reported by some users of the recently launched iPhone 15. The tech giant attributed the problem to a combination of factors, including a bug in the latest iOS 17 update and changes to third-party applications such as Instagram.

The company identified specific conditions leading to the temperature rise. Firstly, a bug in iOS 17, the most recent version of Apple’s software, was pinpointed as a contributing factor. Apple is actively working to resolve this issue with an upcoming bug fix.

Additionally, Apple noted that recent updates to certain third-party apps, including Instagram, Uber, and the video game Asphalt 9, have placed an unexpected load on the system, exacerbating the overheating problem. However, Instagram has already taken steps to rectify the issue with its app.

Apple assured users that the forthcoming iOS 17 bug fix will not compromise device performance to address temperature concerns. The company emphasized that the overheating is unrelated to the new titanium casing used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, nor is it linked to the newly implemented USB-C port required for European regulatory compliance.
