Apple identifies issues causing overheating in the iPhone 15


REUTERS/Aly Song/File Photo Acquire Licensing Rights Sept 30 (Reuters) - Apple (AAPL.O) on Saturday said it has identified a few issues which can cause new iPhones to run warmer than expected, including a bug in the iOS 17 software which will be fixed in an upcoming update. The third-party apps causing the issue include game Asphalt 9; Metas (META.O) Instagram; and Uber, according to the company. The upcoming iOS 17 bug fix will not reduce performance to address the iPhones temperature. The Cupertino, California-headquartered company said that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max do not suffer from overheating due to the design, rather the new titanium shells result in improved heat dissipation compared to prior stainless steel models. Apple also said the issue is not a safety or injury risk, and will not impact the phones long-term performance.
