Apple announced on Saturday that it has discovered a few problems that could lead to new iPhones operating warmer than planned. One of these problems is a flaw in the iOS 17 software that will be resolved in a future update.
Apple acknowledged that the new phones may feel warmer in the first few days “after setting up or restoring the device due to increased background activity” in response to accusations that the devices are becoming overheated.
Apple added that it is collaborating with app developers on improvements that are now being handed out. “Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system,” the company stated.
According to the business, the problematic third-party apps are Uber, Instagram by Meta , and the game Asphalt 9. On September 27, Instagram already fixed the problem with its app.
The performance of the iPhone won’t be slowed down as a result of the planned iOS 17 bug repair.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, according to the Cupertino, California-based corporation, don’t overheat as a result of their design; rather, the new titanium shells boost heat dissipation when compared to earlier stainless steel models.
Apple added that the problem poses no risk to health or safety and won’t have an effect on the phone’s functionality in the long run.
